Projective psychology : clinical approaches to the total personality by Lawrence Edwin Abt( Book )

40 editions published between 1950 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been prepared because of the great need that exists today to bring within the confines of one volume for easy reference the variety of projective tests and procedures that constitute the growing armamentarium of the clinical psychologist. Although virtually all clinicians are familiar with at least several projective procedures and employ them as appropriate, there is no one today who is fully in command of the vast amount of knowledge and highly developed special skills that the projective methods presented in Projective Psychology: Clinical Approaches to the Total Personality require in clinical use. For this reason principally, and also because of the fact that projective psychology is a rapidly growing discipline in which many clinicians should have a voice, we have preferred to have the separate chapters on the several projective instruments and procedures prepared by leading workers whose competence with a particular technique or application in a special setting has been established. The result, we believe, is a happier one than might have occurred had we ourselves presumed to present the field of projective psychology from the background of our experience alone. The projective methods offered have been chosen with a catholicity which grows out of our belief that projective psychology is young and vigorous, and that it is important to set forth what is actually being practiced at the present time. We have imposed no restrictions upon the contributors, urging each to express as fully as he liked his own views, and asking only that the material offered have a practical orientation which may increase its usefulness as it finds application in the hands of others. The emphasis in each instance is chiefly upon the clinical use of the various procedures rather than upon their use as research tools in personality or clinical inquiries"--Preface.

Interracial marriage: expectations and realities by Irving R Stuart( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interracial marriage usually implies, at least for American readers, black-white relations; and, while that is the emphasis of this group of eighteen essays (all but one commissioned for the volume--a welcome respite from the reprint mill), there is an effort to consider the subject more fully via articles on miscegenation in Brazil, Cuba, Hawaii, Japan, and between whites and North American Indians. The contributors, most of whom are young academics or working professionals in one of the social sciences, avoid bias on the pros and cons of interracial unions, though all who speak about them conclude that such marriages are increasing and will continue to do so, and thus require more serious study, both theoretically and empirically. For instance, Robert Merton's exchange theory of marital choice between blacks and whites (originally published in 1941) is challenged as erroneous by James Bruce and Dr. Hyman Rodman in their "Black-White Marriages in the United States: A Review of the Empirical Literature" and seen only as a "step in the right direction" by Professor Bernard Murstein in his paper, probably the most formidable contribution to the collection. The usual subtopics are covered--children, dating, family conflicts, taboos, racial myths -- as well as some not ordinarily discussed (transracial adoption). Students--the natural audience--will find this helpful. Stuart and Abt have also co-edited Children of Separation and Divorce.-Kirkus reviews

Acting out : theoretical and clinical aspects by Lawrence Edwin Abt( Book )

17 editions published between 1965 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beneficial and harmful effects of acting out are studied in a series of short essays by numerous authors. Included are four articles on the theoretical and dynamic considerations of acting out, along with five clinical manifestations of acting out involving suicide and criminality in adolescents and adults. Special forms of harmful acting out including drug addiction, alcoholism, psychosomatic illness, obesity, learning inhibition, and homosexuality are presented. Group therapy and the management of acting out problems in adolescents and adults are discussed as aids to mental hygiene. The beneficial aspects of predicting acting out by tests, such as the Wechsler Scales, the Rorschach, the Thematic Apperception Test, projective drawings, and the Bender Gestalt are included. (Jm)
