This book defines the meaning of the several terms employed and presents systematically and in organized fashion the results of experimental findings and indications from clinical experience concerning the ego and the self. The book, therefore, becomes a text for those who wish to acquaint themselves with recent thinking and experimental work in this field. It is addressed principally to psychology students who are clinically oriented, but should serve as a basic text for any individual preparing himself for psychological counseling and psychotherapy, whether his preparation stems from psychology, psychiatry or social work.

Psychological diagnosis in social adjustment; including an annotated list of tests, questionnaires, and rating scales for the study of personality and conduct by Percival Mallon Symonds( Book )

17 editions published in 1934 in English and Undetermined and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is of interest to three groups--psychologists, sociologists, and educators--who are jointly concerned with the problems herein discussed. First of all, it serves the student of psychology who wishes to become better acquainted with the applications that diagnostic psychology can make in these four important fields of human endeavor. It is also of interest to sociologists in its survey of the principles of social diagnosis which is their special province. Educators, too, will find that the principles of diagnosis and individual study described here are central to a concerted attack on the problems of social reconstruction, now recognized as increasingly the task of education. It is the thesis of this book that any study of the individual should begin while the child is in school. The annotated list of tests, scales, and questionnaires at the end of the book may be of service to those who wish a ready reference to the instruments now available"--Preface.

The nature of conduct by Percival Mallon Symonds( Book )

7 editions published between 1928 and 2015 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The truth is becoming apparent that no form of control has a greater possibility for influencing the happiness and well-being of society than the control of those biological reactions which we classify under the head of human conduct. In the control of the physical environment there are two persons at work: the scientist, who discovers laws; and the engineer, who applies the discoveries of the scientist to the actual manipulation of materials. So, in the realm of conduct, we have the psychologist, who studies the factors which influence behavior, and the educator, who uses these discoveries in actually molding the conduct of growing boys and girls. This book is designed to be of value to both of these persons: it offers a new viewpoint and a correlation of facts to the student of psychology, and it describes conduct as a guide for the educator in understanding more clearly the exact nature of the process it is his province to control. With the lessening of the influence of the home in the control of conduct, the school has become aware that one of its most important functions is to shoulder the burden of character development. The nursery-school movement has conceived as its primary objective the formation of early conduct trends. Habit clinics have grown up in our large cities to advise concerning troublesome problems of conduct. Extracurricular activities in high school have proved to be the natural environment for the development of modes of social behavior. On all sides today we hear discussed the large question of character education. It is my first purpose in this book to dispel any element of mystery in attempting to define conduct by starting with the basic conceptions of physiology and psychology. By studying all possible combinations of stimulus and response and the relation of these combinations to conduct, one is led inevitably to the conclusion that, after all, this elusive ideal, character, is really the organization of large numbers of habits. Such a conclusion removes the suspicion of sentimentality from character education and makes it instead a problem for scientific educational engineering. This book is addressed to important groups of such engineers--teachers, parents, social workers, and all who are interested in the problems of conduct formation and who wish to learn what modern psychology conceives to be the nature of conduct. Students of psychology will also find herein a new orientation of their material and novel applications to the applied problems of social control"--Préface.

Education and the psychology of thinking by Percival Mallon Symonds( Book )

10 editions published between 1936 and 2011 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has grown out of a desire to satisfy my curiosity about the nature of the thinking process. Psychological discussions about the nature of thinking are rare and those which exist are somewhat meager; books on logic have as their function the description of relationships between concepts, propositions, and inferences, and the treatment of the mental processes involved in thinking is outside their province. My publishers insisted that this report would gain in value to its readers if I could review recent experimental work on the thinking process, and also make more applications for educational practice. Accordingly I have gone very carefully and thoroughly over the experimental literature in psychology produced during the past years which deals with all phases of the thinking process. These findings have been incorporated throughout the manuscript wherever they belong. I have been gratified to find that almost without exception the experimental findings have harmonized with my own observations and interpretations. In addition to this I have drawn on my familiarity with the psychology of the school subjects to introduce illustrations of the application of various thought processes to school learning"--Preface.
