The study of lives : essays on personality in honor of Henry A. Murray by Robert Winthrop White( Book )

43 editions published between 1963 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of lives reveals for the first time the extent of Henry A. Murray's considerable influence on the study of personality. Throughout his long and distinguished career, he has either trained or strongly influenced some of the world's leading psychologists, eighteen of whom have written fascinating essays for this book. The range of topics presented here is as diverse and highly original as Murray's own ideas about personality. Everyone concerned with the study of personality will find this book an excellent sampling of the best work being done in the field. Some essays are based on intensive case studies, affirming the enduring value of that method. Sanford gives the histories of two college girls who scored alike on a standardized test of impulse expression but who did so for utterly different reasons. Keniston provides a searching analysis of an alienated undergraduate. The case histories of two twice-studied men are given by White to show the far-reaching developmental importance of the sense of interpersonal competence"--Book

Bridging psychology and sociology, this volume demonstrates the importance of self, identity, and self-esteem in analyzing and understanding social movements. The scholars gathered here provide a cohesive picture of how self and identity bear on social movement recruitment, activism, and maintenance. The result is a timely contribution to the social movements literature and to a greater understanding of the social and psychological forces at work within them

The abnormal personality by Robert Winthrop White( Book )

28 editions published between 1948 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author's intent is to write about abnormal people in a way that will be valuable and interesting to students new to the subject. A first course in abnormal psychology is not intended to train specialists. Its goal is more general: it should provide the student with the opportunity to whet his interest, expand his horizons, register a certain body of new facts, and relate this to the rest of his knowledge about mankind. I have tried to present the subject in such a way as to emphasize its usefulness to all students of human nature. I have tried the experiment of writing two introductory chapters, one historical and the other clinical. This reflects my desire to set the subject-matter in a broad perspective and at the same time to anchor it in concrete fact. Next comes a block of six chapters designed to set forth the topics of maladjustment and neurosis. The two chapters on psychotherapy complete the more purely psychological or developmental part of the work. In the final chapter the problem of disordered personalities is allowed to expand to its full social dimensions. Treatment, care, and prevention call for social effort and social organization. I have sought to show some of the lines, both professional and nonprofessional, along which this effort can be expended. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
