Measures of social psychological attitudes by John P Robinson( Book )

73 editions published between 1914 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a systematic review and evaluation of the major empirical measures of social psychological attitudes. It is hoped that the form of presentation adopted in this work (which includes actual scale items and scoring instructions) will help the reader to make his or her own judgments about the current state of the art in social attitude research. This information is presented for each measure: the variable measured, a description of the measure, the sample, data on reliability and validity, where the measure may be located in the literature, results and comments, and references. The chapters are broken down as follows: (1) introduction, (2) measures of life satisfaction and happiness, (3) measures of self-esteem and related constructs, (4) measures of internal-external locus of control, (5) measures of alienation and anomia, (6) measures of authoritarianism, dogmatism, and related constructs, (7) other socio-political attitude measures, (8) measures of values, (9) measures of general attitudes toward people, (10) measures of religious attitudes, and (11) methodological scales primarily for the measurement of social desirability response set.

Attachment in adulthood : structure, dynamics, and change by Mario Mikulincer( Book )

27 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume reviews the foundations of attachment theory and traces how the study of adolescents and adults has enriched Bowlby and Ainsworth's original ideas. Measures of attachment style and related constructs (several of which are reprinted in the appendices) are described in depth, and their contributions to understanding both normative processes and individual differences are explored. The authors analyze findings from thousands of studies to show how attachment has been used to further scientific knowledge about nearly all aspects of social functioning. Revealed are compelling insights into the processes underlying mental representations of self and others, personal goals and strivings, healthy and unhealthy coping strategies, couple dynamics, sexuality, caregiving, psychopathology, psychotherapy, and organizational behavior. The concluding chapter reflects on the key issues addressed, considers the deeper philosophical implications of current work in the field, and identifies pivotal directions for future investigation."--Jacket
Human aggression and violence : causes, manifestations, and consequences( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an impressive, well-rounded, authoritative overview of the latest research and theory about human aggression. Written by a diverse phalanx of highly respected experts, from evolutionary psychologists and behavioral geneticists to developmental, social, and clinical psychologists, the chapters offer a rich assortment of perspectives and an indispensable survey of issues, facts, and theories about why and how people hurt each other. It is an ideal introduction to the modern psychology of aggression for scholars and students, and a convenient reference for specialists, journalists, and the general public.-Roy F. Baumeister, author of Evil: Inside Human Violence and Cruelty" "This volume is an outstanding, integrated, biopsychosocial approach to aggression ranging over the contributions of genes, neurophysiology, early life influences, social relationships, personality, and cultures and exploring the "victim perspective." Edited by internationally renowned researchers in attachment and social relationships, this gem of a book provides detailed, up-to-date access to current work by world leaders in the field. The best way of dealing aggression and becoming more compassionate is to better understand the facilitators and inhibitors of aggression, and this volume significantly contributes to this important endeavor. Paul Gilbert, author of The Compassionate Mind" "In this exciting book, leading experts cover contemporary theory, research, and practice in the psychology of aggression and violence. There is something here for everyone interested in these topics: basic theory, up-to-date reviews, and practical applications. There is a broad range of approachesincluding evolutionary background, neuroscience and genetics, environmental influences, violence between groups, and the impact on victims. John Archer, School of Psychology University of Central Lancashire, Lancashire, United Kingdom" "Violence and aggression have existed as long, as humankind, and the need to understand and control these forces has only continued to grow throughout history. Thanks to the advance of psychological research within the social and behavioral sciences, as well as several other scientific disciplines, we have more knowledge than ever before about the genetic, developmental, interpersonal, and cultural causes of aggression. Yet these findings have not been integrated into meaningful discussions about how to transform aggression research into practical applications. With so many answers to the question "What makes a person violent?" there is surprisingly little insight into "How do we prevent violence?"" "In this comprehensive book, editors Phillip R. Shaver and Mario Mikulincer have assembled chapters from international experts to provide a broad-based and multidisciplinary analysis of aggression and violence, their negative consequences, and promising interventions. Five sections examine major theoretical perspectives, genetic and environmental determinants, and the psychological and relational processes underlying human violence and aggression. The tone of the book is realistic in its investigation of violence as an inherent part of human genetics and interaction, but hopeful in its exploration of research-based interventions aimed at reducing violence in future generations. In its assessment of aggression and violence across individual, relational and societal levels, this book will engage a broad audience." "This book is part of the Herzliya Series on Personality and Social Psychology." "Phillip R.

The Social Psychology of Morality : Exploring the Causes of Good and Evil by Mario Mikulincer( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Humans are universally concerned with good and evil, although one person's "evil" can be another person's "good." How do individuals arrive at decisions about what is right and what is wrong? And how are these decisions influenced by psychological, social, and cultural forces? Such questions form the foundation of the field of moral psychology. In trying to understand moral behavior, researchers historically adopted a cognitive-rationalistic approach that emphasized reasoning and reflection. However, a new generation of investigators has become intrigued by the role of emotional, unconscious, and intra- and interpersonal processes. Their explorations are presented in this third addition to the Herzliya Series on Personality and Social Psychology. The contributors to this volume begin by presenting basic issues and controversies in the study of morality; subsequent chapters explore the psychological processes involved, such as the cognitive mechanisms and motives underlying immoral behavior and moral hypocrisy. Later chapters discuss personality, developmental, and clinical aspects of morality as well as societal aspects of good and evil, including the implications of moral thinking for large-scale violence and genocide. The wide-ranging findings and discussions presented in this volume make this work a provocative and engaging resource for social psychologists and other scholars concerned with moral judgments and both moral and immoral behavior"--Publicity materials.

Prosocial motives, emotions, and behavior : the better angels of our nature by Mario Mikulincer( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, psychological scientists' narrow focus on negative emotions and antisocial behavior has broadened to include a panoply of positive emotions such as empathy, compassion, gratitude, and forgiveness and a new emphasis on prosocial, generous, altruistic behavior. At the same time, neuroscientists, primatologists, and evolutionary biologists have begun to identify the evolutionary and neurological roots of prosocial feelings and actions. Research shows that human beings have an innate capacity for prosocial behavior, but the inclinations underlying such behavior can be inhibited or overpowered in selfish, neurotic, or culturally engrained attitudes and values. Genes, personality, past social experiences, social and cultural identities, and contextual factors can all influence the degree to which human behavior is empathic and generous or cruel, vindictive, and destructive. Prosocial Motives, Emotions, and Behavior, with a subtitle borrowed from an inaugural address In Abraham Lincoln, is a comprehensive examination of the interplay of these influences. Part I considers theoretical perspectives on prosocial behavior; Part II illuminates the psychological processes that underlie prosocial behavior; Part III focuses on specific emotions such as compassionate love, gratitude, and forgiveness; Part IV examines prosocial behavior between individuals at the dyadic level; and Part V investigates prosocial behavior at the societal level, with an emphasis on solving intractable conflicts and achieving desirable social change. This stimulating, wide-ranging volume is sure to be of great interest to psychologists, social scientists, and anyone with an interest in understanding and fostering prosocial behavior"--Jaquette.

Mechanisms of social connection : from brain to group by Mario Mikulincer( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human beings the world over are eager to form social bonds, and suffer grievously when these bonds are disrupted. Social connections contribute to our sense of meaning and feelings of vitality, on the one hand, and -- at times -- to our anguish and despair on the other. It is not surprising that the mechanisms underlying human connections have long interested researchers from diverse disciplines including social psychology, developmental psychology, communication studies, sociology, and neuroscience. Yet there is too little dialogue among these disciplines and too little integration of insights and findings. This fifth book in the Herzliya Series on Personality and Social Psychology aims to rectify that situation by providing a comprehensive survey of cutting-edge theory and research on social connections. The volume contains 21 chapters organised into four main sections: Brain (focusing on the neural underpinnings of social connections and the hormonal processes that contribute to forming connections), Infancy and Development (focusing especially on child-parent relationships), Dyadic Relationship (focusing especially on romantic and marital relationships), Group (considering both evolutionary and physiological bases of group processes). The integrative perspectives presented here are thought-provoking reading for anyone interested in the social nature of the human mind
Meaning, mortality, and choice : the social psychology of existential concerns by Phillip R Shaver( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fundamental aspect of being human is knowing that one day we will die. Efforts to contend with this knowledge are at the root of a great many social behaviors across a variety of domains, and include efforts to transcend the human body, aggression against enemies and the need for scapegoats, even extreme reactions such as terrorism and suicide, as well as the development of symbolic language and the creation of art and music. In this thought-provoking addition to the Herzliya Series on Personality and Social Psychology, editors Phillip R. Shaver and Mario Mikulincer have gathered a varied group of international thinkers to investigate these existential concerns within a framework that is both philosophical and practical. Theorists examine the nature of universal themes such as the importance of personal choice and human autonomy in an arbitrary world, and the vital roles of parenthood and religion in providing solace against the threat of meaninglessness. And clinicians discuss the use of various cognitive-behavioral therapies, emphasizing the mind's propensity to assign value in ways that can be either maladaptive or liberating. The authors build upon insights from previous chapters, resulting in a cohesive and thoughtfully-prepared book filled with cutting-edge research"--Publicity materials.

Emotions, relationships, and health( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1991 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychologists are currently returning in droves to the study of emotion, an obviously important topic that was swept of center stage several decades ago, thanks to behaviorism, and then ignored a while longer when cognitivism captured the limelight. Freud's well-known phrase, "the return of the repressed," seems to apropos of what's happening now: Emotion is back, and with a vengeance!

Measures of Personality and Social Psychological Attitudes: Volume 1 in Measures of Social Psychological Attitudes Series provides a comprehensive guide to the most promising and useful measures of important social science concepts. This book is divided into 12 chapters and begins with a description of the Measures of Personality and Social Psychological Attitudes Project's background and the major criteria for scale construction.

These topics are followed by discussions of measures of social anxiety, which is conceived a major inhibitor of social interaction, as well as the negative states of depression and loneliness. Other chapters examine the separate dimensions of alienation, the predictive value of interpersonal trust and attitudes in studies of occupational choice and racial attitude change, and the attitude scales related to locus of control. The final chapters look into the measures related to authoritarianism, androgyny, and values. This book is of great value to social and political scientists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, non-academic professionals, and students
