A Dictionary of Psychology
With over 10,500 entries, this dictionary includes coverage of all areas of psychology, together with technical words from other disciplines used by psychologists. These include psychoanalysis, psychiatry, neuroanatomy, and statistics. The definitions are detailed, but clear and explicit, with word origins and illustrations given where necessary. There is comprehensive coverage of phobias and phobic stimuli and mental disorders, as well as a list of over 700 abbreviations and symbols commonly used in psychology. Written by a leading authority, with the assistance of a distinguished team of advisory editors, this comprehensive volume should prove essential reading for professional psychologists, psychiatrists, counsellors, and students of psychology and related disciplines such as psychiatry, medicine, nursing, sociology, social work, and education.
