Psychology, theoretical-historical perspectives by R. W Rieber( Book )

28 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The approach to theory and history adapted by the contributors is to focus on some of the central figures in the development of discipline. Within this approach, the authors offer analyses of 3 major theoretical currents in psychology: psychoanalysis, behaviorism, and the Geneva school. Other chapters focus on psychophysics and on Gestalt, cognitive, and evolutionary psychology. The text covers such influences as G.T. Fechner, G.E. Muller, W. Wundt, F. Galton, James, Darwin, J.M. Baldwin, and Vygotsky and such topics as the Americanization of psychology and psychoanalysis, the relationship between politics and psychology in the US, and the contrasting development of the concept of the self in Western and Eastern psychology, and reprints chapters originally contributed by B.F. Skinner and Jean Piaget. It provides the reader with a broad overview of the development of a continually evolving field, one that has had an influence on the thought and culture of the 20th century.

Research in verbal behavior and some neurophysiological implications by Kurt Salzinger( Book )

22 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research in Verbal Behavior and Some Neurophysiological Implications focuses on varied approaches to the study of language, including verbal behavior in animals, mimicry, linguistics, and verbal satiation. The selection first offers information on verbal behavior in animals and dolphin's vocal mimicry as a unique ability and a way toward understanding. The book also ponders on the problem of response class in verbal behavior and verbal operant conditioning and awareness. Discussions focus on state of the organism as a determinant of response class, topography of response, common stimulus, and common effect. The publication takes a look at a behavioral basis for the polarity principle in linguistics, acquisition of grammar by children, and interdependencies of the bilingual's two languages. The manuscript also elaborates on verbal satiation and exploration of meaning relations and grammatical indicants of speaking style in normal and aphasic speakers. The selection is highly recommended for readers wanting to study verbal behavior

Studies in verbal behavior: an empirical approach by Kurt Salzinger( Book )

21 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies in Verbal Behavior: An Empirical Approach summarizes the results of empirical studies on the variables that control verbal behavior. These studies explore the response properties of verbal behavior already acquired, with respect to size of unit, mode of emission, and the constraining effects of sentence frames. The stimulus situation in which the behavior is emitted, the use of verbal material as stimulus, and the relationship between sequential guessing of sentences and the marking off of """"idea unit"""" boundaries in the same material are also discussed. This volume first introduce

Behavioral mechanisms and psychopathology : advancing the explanation of its nature, cause, and treatment by Kurt Salzinger( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mental health diagnosticians face a great challenge when exploring the presenting symptom of aberrant behavior, particularly in tracing such behavior to its source, and especially when such aberrant behavior involves no obvious biological site. In short, reliance on biological causes alone may be necessary to explain some aberrant behavior, but it is in any case not sufficient. The identification of the offending behavior alone is not sufficient either. We need to identify the variables that control it. For this purpose, we need to examine the behavioral mechanisms underlying the various behavioral disorders. Behavioral mechanisms fundamentally elucidate the nature of the psychopathology. Whether to enhance theoretical understanding or improve clinical efficacy, emotional and behavioral problems must be understood in terms of the controlling variables (the behavioral mechanisms). Examination of the behavioral mechanisms that mediate psychological disturbances is crucial for a complete understanding of the origin, maintenance, treatment, course, and symptomatology of any mental disorder. We asked the authors of the chapters in this volume to examine in turn the behavioral mechanisms that mediate (explain?) cause and effect for a variety of behavioral disorders and discuss the treatments that result from understanding these mechanisms. Each contributor or group of contributors to this volume responded to our charge to examine the behavioral mechanism underlying a particular form of psychopathology in terms of its own reinforcement history. That charge was given to these contributors on the basis of the fact that they were the experts and that they thus would be able to provide the readersstudents, scholars, and clinicians alikewith the most interesting and useful information. As the pages of this book reveal, behavioral mechanisms are multifaceted and allow the clinician and the researcher to reveal even more links in the chain of psychological functions that explain howand, more important, whypsychopathology is produced"--Introduction.
