This book describes a program of research concerned with the social and psychological effects of architectural design. In each chapter a different aspect of resident experience and behaviour is described, allowing an organized development of tests of the primary hypotheses. By organizing the book in this manner, it is hoped that the impact of architectural design and social density will be highlighted. The studies reported in this book were conducted at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and at Trinity College

Residential crowding and design by John R Aiello( Book )

9 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intent of this book is threefold: (1) to summarize recent research concerned with residential crowding, (2) to present some new perspec­ tives on this important subject, and (3) to consider design implications and recommendations that can be derived from the existing body of research. We have sought to bring together the work of many of the researchers most involved in these areas, and have asked them to go beyond their data-to present new insights into response to residential crowding and to speculate about the meaning of their work for the present and future design of residential environments. We feel that this endeavor has been successful, and that the present volume will help to advance our understanding of these issues. The study of residential density is not new. Studies in this area were conducted by sociologists as early as the 1920s, yielding moderate corre­ lational relationships between census tract density and various social and physical pathologies. This work, however, has been heavily criticized because it did not adequately consider confounding social structural factors, such as social class and ethnicity. The research that will be presented in the present volume represents a new generation of crowding investigation. All of the work has been conducted during the 1970s, and a range of methodological strategies have been employed in these studies
Cataclysms, crises, and catastrophes : psychology in action( Book )

15 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although by no means definitive, the information that clinical practitioners, community psychologists, applied social psychologists, health psychologists, and others will find in these chapters will provide a broad view of current understandings of how catastrophic events affect individuals and groups and of how human beings adapt and can be helped to adapt to the resulting stresses. The chapters in this volume provide insight into the effects of disasters resulting from technological accidents as well as natural disasters, crime and terrorism, violence against women, suicide, and irrevocable losses resulting from death, illness, and other life events. The chapters in this volume illustrate why an interaction between theory and practice, between a firm foundation in knowledge and basic human understanding, is so vital. They also illustrate how psychologists help individuals under stress confront, understand, and grow beyond not only the ordinary stresses they must face each day, but also the extraordinary stresses that today arise so often and so suddenly as a result of both natural disasters (such as volcanoes, floods, and fires) and humanmade disasters (such as toxic spills and acts of violence, crime, and terrorism)"--Preface.

The handbook of stress science : biology, psychology, and health by Richard J Contrada( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fields of health psychology and behavioural medicine attempt to understand the non-biological factors that in some way influence our physical health. Chief among these factors is stress: a psychological construct that has real, physical effects on the immune and nervous systems, and has been implicated in a wide variety of illnesses. Drs. Baum and Contrada, two of the leading health psychologists in the US, present in this edited volume state-of-the-art overviews of key topics in stress and health psychology. With chapters contributed by leading scholars from such fields as health psychology, neurobiology, neuroscience, genetics, medicine, and public health, this book discusses the most important issues and conflicts that contribute to stress, and offers insight on the management of different types of stress. As the only comprehensive, cross-disciplinary handbook on stress and health, this book provides expanded coverage of areas such as tress biology, environmental and social contributors to stress, stress research methods, and theoretical advances

Psychosocial perspectives on AIDS : etiology, prevention, and treatment by Lydia Temoshok( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AIDS and the virus that causes it have challenged the world's scientists, health care systems, and public health policies as much or more than any medical problem in recorded history. Perhaps this is so because this particular infirmity constitutes more than a merely medical problem: it is enmeshed in psychological, social, cultural, political, and economic contexts. This book examines the need for pragmatic and research-based suggestions on how to address some important problems related to these contexts. Although much basic research in virology and immunology can be accomplished within the b

Health at work( Book )

This book focuses on the major issues surrounding worksite health promotion programs. It identifies and discusses examples of the most intensively studied programs (such as Johnson and Johnson's ""Live for Life, "" and AT & T's ""TLC""), and considers the ""state of science"" for the four most frequently offered health-promotion program components: smoking cessation, weight control, exercise, and stress management. As is becoming increasingly evident, worksite health-promotion activities pose their own unique set of challenges -- challenges that are likely to have a significant impact on

Environmental psychology by Paul A Bell( Book )

15 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bell et al’s Environmental Psychology is considered to be the most authoritative textbook available for this course. It is the only environmental psychology book to appear in five editions. It is noted for its focus on the application of science and theory to the solution of problems involving natural and altered environments. The book reviews the application of practical solutions to everyday environmental problems. The authors integrate theory, research, and application using their unifying, eclectic model to demonstrate human-environment interaction. The book reviews how we are a product of our environment, our biology, and the interaction of the two. It discusses how our physical environment such as noise and weather impact us. It also reviews how we can modify our environment through design principles such as aesthetics, and how we modify our environment when we disregard the impact other people and/or elements have on our ecological system. Each chapter addresses both micro and macro- environmental influences, including the short- and long-term effects of both."--Psychology Press's website
