Oxford handbook of positive psychology by Shane J Lopez( Book )

69 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Oxford Handbook of Positive Psychology, Second Edition is the seminal reference in the burgeoning field of positive psychology, which, in recent years, has transcended academia to capture the imagination of the general public. The handbook provides a roadmap for the psychology needed by the majority of the population - those who don't need treatment, but want to achieve the lives to which they aspire. The 65 chapters summarize all of the relevant literature in the field, and each of the international slate of contributors is essentially defining a lifetime of research. The content's breadth and depth provide an unparalleled cross-disciplinary look at positive psychology from diverse fields and all branches of psychology, including social, clinical, personality, counseling, school, and developmental psychology. Topics include not only happiness--which has been perhaps misrepresented in the popular media as the entirety of the field--but also hope, strengths, positive emotions, life longings, creativity, emotional creativity, courage, and more, plus guidelines for applying what has worked for people across time and cultures."--Jacket
Positive psychological assessment : a handbook of models and measures by Shane J Lopez( Book )

28 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is a primer for practitioners and researchers striving to incorporate the assessment of human strengths, resources, and fulfillment into their work. Contributors aptly examine the scientific underpinnings and practical applications of measures of hope, optimism, self-efficacy, problem solving, locus of control, creativity, wisdom, courage, positive emotion, self-esteem, emotional intelligence, empathy, attachment, forgiveness, humor, gratitude, faith, morality, and quality of life. Vocational and multicultural applications of positive psychological assessment are also discussed, as is the measurement of contextual variables that may facilitate the development or enhancement of human strength. The variety of perspectives offered will be immensely helpful to readers who wish to incorporate balance into their assessments and research through the integration of theoretically grounded positive measures.

Coping with negative life events : clinical and social psychological perspectives by C. R Snyder( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like a Bridge over Troubled Waters" The surge of current interest in the interface between clinical and social psychology is well illustrated by the publication of a number of general texts and journals in this area, and the growing emphasis in graduate programs on providing training in both disciplines. Although the bene℗Ư fits of an integrated clinical-social approach have been recognized for a number of years, the recent work in this area has advanced from the℗Ư oretical extrapolations of social psychological models to clinical issues to theory and research that is based on social principles and conducted in clinical domains. It is becoming increasingly common to find social psy℗Ư chologists pursuing research with clinical populations and clinical psy℗Ư chologists investigating variables that have traditionally been in the realm of social psychology. A major area of interface between the two disciplines is in research and theory concerned with how individuals respond to negative events. In addition to the trend toward an integrated clinical-social approach, the growing body of literature in this area reflects the explosion of cur℗Ư rent interest in the area of health psychology; work by clinical and social psychologists on the topics of stress and coping has been one of the major facets of this burgeoning field. The purpose of the present volume is to provide a common forum for recent advances in the clinical and social literature on responses to negative life outcomes

The psychology of hope : you can get there from here by C. R Snyder( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this compelling look at the psychology of hope, C.R. Snyder provides insights into the personality of the highly hopeful individual. Drawing on inspiring clinical cases, as well as his seminal research and widely distributed hope scale, Snyder shows that very hopeful people differ from the rest of us in some intriguing respects. First, they have the ability to envision a broader range of goals than most people. Second, they have greater will power and energy in pursuing those goals. And third, they have the skills to generate a greater variety of routes to reach their objectives. The book includes in the first chapter a hope test for adults that allows readers to assess their individual levels of hope. Snyder then analyzes the significant events in the first 18 years that contribute to the development of hope, and he provides a useful scale for children that parents and professionals can administer to determine a child's level of hope. Through a variety of clinical cases, he also explores how hope is often destroyed in children and in adults. He shows, for example, how neglect, abuse, parental loss, unrealistic expectations for the child, and inconsistent parenting can erode in different ways children's ability to envision goals or their ability to develop strategies to reach them. Finally, he provides practical, research-based information on how hope can be fostered in children and adults. In this section, he gives specific advice on how to envision goals more strongly, how to increase one's energy in pursuing one's objectives, and how to develop a greater variety of strategies to reach one's goals. The Psychology of Hope is a book for anyone who seeks to understand the psychological underpinning of this essential virtue

Self-handicapping : the paradox that isn't by Raymond L Higgins( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of self-handicapping can be legitimately anchored in a vari ety of intellectual contexts, some old and some newer. As this volume reminds us, Alfred Adler was perhaps the first to articulate the signifi cance of various self-defeating claims and gestures for protecting the self concept. Thus the apparent paradox of "defeat" in the interests of "pro tection." More recently (but still more than 30 years ago), Heider's "naive psychology" added attributional rhetoric to the description of self-defeat ing strategies. While predominantly cognitive in its thrust, the attribu tional approach incorporated several motivational influences-especially those involving egocentric concerns. Heider hardly violated our common sense when he suggested that people are inclined to attribute their performances in a self-serving manner: the good things I caused; the bad things were forced upon me. The notion of self-handicapping strategies, proposed by Berglas and myself a little more than a decade ago, capitalized on these homely truths while adding a particular proactive twist. We not only make ex cuses for our blunders; we plan our engagements and our situational choices so that self-protective excuses are unnecessary. In doing so, we use our attributional understanding to arrange things so that flawed and failing performances will not be interpreted in ways that threaten our self-esteem

Handbook of hope : theory, measures & applications by C. R Snyder( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hope has previously been a construct more of interest to philosophy and religion than to psychology. New research has shown, however, that hope is closely related to optimism, feelings of control, and motivation toward achieving one's goals. The Handbook of Hope presents a comprehensive overview of the psychological inquiry into hope, including its measurement, development in children, how its loss is associated with specific clinical disorders, and therapeutic approaches that can help instill hope in those who have lost theirs. A final section discusses hope in occupational applications: how the use of hope can make one a better coach, teacher, or parent."
