My friends : the wild chimpanzees by Jane Goodall( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in English and held by 1,630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1960 a young Englishwoman named Jane Goodall embarked on a daring scientific adventure: the study of chimpanzees in the wild. Encouraged and aided by Dr. Louis B. Leakey, she traveled hundreds of miles across East Africa to reach the remote Gombe Stream Game reserve on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. There she found the powerful and potentially dangererous wild chimpanzee. This book tells of the drama, the humor, the challenges, and the rewards of her years of exhaustive research along with telling the life stories of her chimpanzee acquaintances enhanced with 166 color photographs
Manual of child psychology by Leonard Carmichael( Book )

102 editions published between 1946 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 1,455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual is an advanced-level textbook and is intended to be an addition at just this advanced level to the literature of general as well as child psychology. The book is presented as a series of separate chapters, each written by a recognized authority. Its purpose is to provide an accurate and coherent picture of some of the most important aspects of research in the scientific psychology of human development. Until comparatively recent years most of those who wrote upon the development of individual mental life elaborated essentially speculative theories. They attempted to describe man's so-called inborn instincts or the allegedly tabula rasa character of the mind of the young child. The present book is testimony to the fact that today psychologists and other scientists by the use of appropriate techniques have established a large body of important and reliable facts concerning the details of human mental development. Many practical as well as theoretical gains have resulted from the empirical study of the growth of the human mind. It will be clear to the reader of these chapters that it has been possible to formulate hypotheses concerning many specific aspects of mental development. These hypotheses have in many instances been tested in the laboratory or in controlled and quantifiable social situations. The conclusions so reached are very different from the vague verbal theories of the prescientific era of child psychology. One who is interested mainly in securing an understanding of adult mental life can gain many new insights into mental processes in general from a study of these chapters. A knowledge of the way in which adult psychological characteristics develop in each individual is fundamental to a complete understanding of such characteristics. The manual may thus be thought of as a factual introduction to the understanding not only of child psychology but also of the psychology of the normal adult human mind and even of the abnormal human mind.

The clinical treatment of the problem child by Carl R Rogers( Book )

7 editions published between 1939 and 2015 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is written by a psychologist who has had wide experience in the treatment of the behavior problems of children. In its pages the reader will find no panacea described. The author does not conceal the fact that the problems with which he is dealing are difficult ones and often ones which have as yet only begun to be studied scientifically. The book is divided into three major sections. In the first of these, the question of the correct diagnosis of behavior problems is discussed. In the second section, those forms of treatment which depend upon a radical alteration in environment, such as the transplantation of the child from his home to an institution, are considered in an illuminating manner. The final section of the book -- which will certainly to many readers be its most useful part -- is concerned with those methods of treatment which depend not on an almost complete environmental change but upon a constructive modification of the child's own immediate conditions of life. It will be easy for any academic psychologist to turn aside from the problems with which Dr. Rogers has here dealt, with the statement that psychology is not yet far enough advanced to make possible the profitable consideration of such questions. The result of this negative attitude, which has long been too widespread in psychology, is that those who must deal with the day-to-day problems presented by living children find it difficult, if not impossible, to secure the important advice which scientific psychology is now able to give them. This book, then, is recommended for this purpose. It is a progress report on a difficult subject prepared by a man of extensive practical experience who alertly makes use of every intellectual tool which may help in the hard but socially important work of changing the behavior of living children who are not satisfactorily adjusting themselves to the world in which they are developing. -- Provided by publisher

The standpoint is the same as that of "Human Psychology", which recognize both the introspective and behavioristic methods. Material has been freely drawn from the earlier work, but the arrangement of topics is different and the treatment has been simplified. Most of the theoretical discussions are omitted and the practical applications of psychology are emphasized"--Pref. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
