The nature of grief : the evolution and psychology of reactions to loss by John Archer( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Nature of Grief is a new synthesis of material from evolutionary psychology, ethology and experimental psychology on the process of grief. It steps outside of the psychiatric and psychoanalytic perspectives that have dominated grief research for so long, and argues that grief is not an illness or a disorder but a natural reaction to losses of many kinds ... John Archer identifies grief as a common experience throughout all human cultures that has evolved from simpler versions in animals ... The Nature of Grief also considers the cultural and historical context of contemporary ideas about grief, discusses literary, biographical and other non-scientific writings, and includes a wide-ranging, comprehensive and up-to-date review of research. It will be of interest to developmental and clinical psychologists and all those in the caring professions"--Jacket

The behavioural biology of aggression by John Archer( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to elucidate the general principles underlying animal aggression. Aggressive encounters occur even in very simple organisms, and are at the roots of human conflict. A general framework is provided by dividing forms of aggression according to their function - protection of the individual, offspring defence and competition. Within each functional group, the principles underlying the variety of aggressive behaviour in different species, the sexes and different life-cycle stages, are considered, and this is followed by a discussion of the mechanisms through which animals achieve the various functional ends. Aggression is viewed as one possible solution to a recurrent set of problems animals encounter in their natural environments. In any one case, the control and form of aggression are seen as the result of the interaction of past evolutionary environments, developmental influences and current circumstances. -- from back cover

Developmental origins of aggression by Richard Ernest Tremblay( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While aggression is often conceived as a learned behavior that peaks during adolescence, this important volume shows that aggressive behaviors have their origins in early childhood and even infancy. Findings from major longitudinal research programs are used to illuminate the processes by which most children learn alternatives to physical aggression as they grow older, while a minority become increasingly violent. The developmental trajectories of proactive, reactive, and indirect aggression are reviewed, as are lessons learned from animal studies. Bringing together the best of current knowledge, the volume sheds new light on the interplay of biological factors, social and environmental influences, and sex differences in both adaptive and maladaptive aggression
