Handbook of emotions by Michael Lewis( Book )

35 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in emotions has blossomed over the last decade. From psychopathology to the cognitive sciences, research has stimulated the creation of improved measurement techniques, as well as new ways of conceptualizing behavior and feelings. Reflecting the full range of work being done across disciplines, this volume authoritatively reports on an ever-growing, important body of research. Completely up to date, the Handbook is a basic resource for everything that is known about emotions. The book is organized into five sections. Laying the groundwork for the chapters that follow, a broad inter-disciplinary overview demonstrates the vast territory that is affected by scholarship in the field. Biological approaches and basic psychological processes are covered in chapters that explore how feelings relate to other aspects of human behavior. The impact of group and family processes is considered, and, finally, specific emotions that have been widely studied - happiness, exhilaration, disgust, fear, anxiety, and shame - are examined in detail. Written by noted authorities, chapters address the models and research emanating from clinical and social psychology, development, biology, neurophysiology, behavior genetics, sociology, history, anthropology, and philosophy. Taken together, the chapters provide a wealth of information that was hitherto available only in scattered publications. A definitive resource, Handbook of Emotions will be valued by all professionals concerned with human behavior. Regardless of discipline, and no matter where one's particular interests lie - in normal and abnormal issues related to emotion, in emotional development, or in the relationship of emotion to other established fields or subfields - this book is the indispensable reference

Handbook of developmental psychopathology by Michael Lewis( Book )

41 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When developmental psychologists set forth the theory that the roots of adult psychopathology could be traced to childhood experience and behavior, the idea quickly took hold. Subsequently, as significant research in this area advanced during the past decade, more sophisticated theory, more accurate research methodologies, and improved replication of empirical findings have been the result. The Third Edition of the Handbook of Developmental Psychopathology incorporates these research advances throughout its comprehensive, up-to-date examination of this diverse and maturing field. Integrative state-of-the-art models document the complex interplay of risk and protective factors and other variables contributing to normal and pathological development. New and updated chapters describe current refinements in assessment methods and offer the latest research findings from neuroscience. In addition, the Third Edition provides readers with a detailed review across the spectrum of salient topics, from the effects of early deprivation to the impact of puberty. As the field continues to shift from traditional symptom-based concepts of pathology to a contemporary, dynamic paradigm, the Third Edition addresses such key topics as: Early childhood disorders, including failure to thrive and attachment disorders. Aggression, ADHD, and other disruptive conditions. Developmental models of depression, anxiety, self-injury/suicide, and OCD. The autism spectrum and other chronic developmental disorders. Substance abuse, eating, and other disorders of control. Child maltreatment and trauma disorders. The Third Edition of the Handbook of Developmental Psychopathology is a discipline-defining, forward-looking resource for researchers, clinicians, scientist-practitioners, and graduate students in such fields as developmental psychology, psychiatry, social work, child and school psychology, educational psychology, and pediatrics
Shame : the exposed self by Michael Lewis( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shame, in some sense the quintessential human emotion, received little attention during the years in which the central forces believed to be motivating us were identified as primitive instincts like sex and aggression. Now redressing the balance, there is an explosion of interest in the self-conscious emotion. Much of our psychic lives involves the negotiation of shame, asserts Michael Lewis, internationally known developmental and clinical psychologist. Shame is normal, not pathological, though opposite reactions to shame underlie many conflicts among individuals and groups, and some styles of handling shame are clearly maladaptive. Illustrating his argument with examples from everyday life, Lewis draws on his own pathbreaking studies and the theory and research of many others to construct the first comprehensive and empirically based account of emotional development focused on shame. He traces the precursors of a sense of self in infancy and early childhood, and describes the consequences of shame which goes unacknowledged, such as sadness, rage, or depression. Lewis also explores the many ways in which shame is induced and expressed, reflecting on the broader implications of these differences--for instance, the divergence, early in life, of men's and women's experiences of and responses to shame; he finds that women are more ashamed, more of the time. Cultures, Lewis argues, are shaped by the ways in which children are taught to deal with shame. What many have seen as a rise in narcissism in contemporary America, following years of emphasis on self-actualization and personal freedom as opposed to commitment and community is associated with an increase in shame. Narcissism is in some sense the ultimate attempt to avoid shame, albeit a doomed one. Lewis shows how approaches to shame differ not only among cultures, but religions as well. Judaism and Christianity for instance, hold different approaches to shame. He explores the major tenets of each belief including mainstream Protestantism, Catholicism, and fundamentalist Christianity and discusses the relative degree of orientation of each toward shame or guilt. Understanding shame is the first step toward coping with it effectively. This book offers a new way of understanding fights between husband and wife, parent and child, nation and nation, and it will be, for many a crucial impetus to take or to help others take that first step
Altering fate : why the past does not predict the future by Michael Lewis( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daring to challenge prevailing models of child development, this provocative book from eminent psychologist Michael Lewis persuasively argues that childhood experiences neither determine who we later become nor limit what we can do. Just as our world, with its randomness, catastrophes, and chance encounters, is unpredictable in nature, Lewis shows, so too is the course of our lives. What enables us to survive - and sets us free from our pasts - is our astonishing adaptability to change, shaped by the uniquely human attributes of consciousness, will, and desire. Bringing a fresh perspective to the work of Freud, Piaget, and theorists of mother-infant attachment, Lewis disputes the idea that we can define identity based on past events or fixed stages of growth. Our pasts themselves, the book demonstrates, gain meaning only through our present consciousness, and their meaning changes as we negotiate between our values, our goals, and our present circumstances. Elaborating the author's contextual approach, chapters explore topics as wide-ranging as the surprising twists of individual life stories, the philosophy of time, the correlation (or lack thereof) between childhood abuse and adult violence, and the effects of environment on mental illness. Lewis convincingly argues that programs to help children should be designed not to prevent something that may occur someday, or to cure something that has already happened, but to foster health and alleviate difficulty now, when it counts most. Throughout, this compelling book calls into question many of our basic assumptions about causes and effects in psychological development

The Development of affect by Michael Lewis( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 1981 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How are we to understand the complex forces that shape human behavior? A variety of diverse perspectives, drawing upon studies of human behavioral ontogeny, as well as humanity's evolutionary herit age seem to provide the best likelihood of success. It is in the attempt to synthesize such potentially disparate approaches to human develop ment into an integrated whole that we undertake this series on the Genesis of Behavior. In many respects, the incredible burgeoning of research in child development the last or like a lines over decade two seems thousand of inquiry spreading outward in an incoherent starburst of effort. The need exists to provide, on an ongoing basis, an arena of discourse within which the threads of continuity between those diverse lines of research on human development can be woven into a fabric of meaning and understanding. Scientists, scholars, and those who attempt to translate their efforts into the practical realities of the care and guidance of infants and children are the audience that we seek to reach. Each requires the opportunity to see-to the degree that our knowledge in given areas permits-various aspects of development in a coherent, integrated fashion. It is hoped that this series-by bringing together research on infant biology; developing infant capacities; animal models, the impact of social, cultural, and familial forces on development, and the distorted products of such forces under certain circumstances-will serve these important social and scientific needs

Lying and deception in everyday life by Michael Lewis( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Truth and deception - like good and evil - have long been viewed as diametrically opposed and unreconcilable. Yet, few people can honestly claim they never lie. In fact, deception is practiced habitually in day-to-day life - from the polite compliment that doesn't accurately relay one's true feelings, to self-deception about one's own motivations. What fuels the need for people to intricately construct lies and illusions about their own lives? If deceptions are unconscious, does it mean that we are not responsible for their consequences? Why does self-deception or the need for illusion make us feel uncomfortable? Taking into account the sheer ubiquity and ordinariness of deception, this interdisciplinary work moves away from the cut-and-dried notion of duplicity as evil and illuminates the ways in which deception can also be understood as an adaptive response to the demands of living with others. The book articulates the boundaries between unethical and adaptive deception, demonstrating how some lies serve socially approved goals, while others provoke distrust and condemnation. Throughout, the volume focuses on the range of emotions - from feelings of shame, fear, or envy, to those of concern and compassion - that motivate our desire to deceive ourselves and others. Providing an interdisciplinary exploration of the widespread phenomenon of lying and deception, this volume promotes a more fully integrated understanding of how people function in their everyday lives. Case illustrations, humor and wit, concrete examples, and even a mock television sitcom script bring the ideas to life for clinical practitioners, behavioral scientists, and philosophers, and for students in these realms
