The Adult years : continuity and change by Martha Storandt( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1994 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Adult Years: Continuity and Change"--The baby-boom generation is now entering middle age and is only two decades away from the retirement years. The fastest-growing segment of our population consists of those over age 85. We are living longer and there are more of us every year. Is psychology ready to serve an aging and aged population? Is the training available in geropsychology adequate? Do we know enough about not just psychology but also about biology and the social processes with which the older adult is most concerned? The chapters in this volume address these and other questions of importance in psychological practice with the older adult. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

20 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychologists are becoming more involved in the etiology, prevention, and treatment of addictive behaviors. Research shows that behavioral habits such as smoking, drinking, and other substance use are associated with a wide variety of problems both for individuals who engage in addictive behaviors and for the larger society in which we live. Addictive behavior problems may appear in a variety of contexts, from harmful health effects and social and family problems to economic and legal difficulties."--p. xi
Neuropsychological assessment of dementia and depression in older adults : a clinician's guide by Martha Storandt( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two of the most common psychological disorders of later life are dementia and depression. The diagnosis of these conditions presents a challenge to clinicians because the symptoms of depression and dementia often overlap; in addition, the symptoms of either of these disorders in their early stages may be attributed to the normal effects of aging. /// [This book] reviews the most up-to-date research on the diagnosis of dementia and depression [in older adults] and offers concrete recommendations for evaluating this unique population. /// The contributors to this volume, all experts in the psychological assessment of older adults, give clinicians and practitioners clear and practical guidance on differentiating psychological disorders from normal events in the aging process, identifying symptoms of depression and symptoms of dementia, performing differential assessment of dementia and depression, determining legal competency of older adults, providing clinical interpretations to clients and their families, and applying assessment to therapy and interventions.

Cataclysms, crises, and catastrophes : psychology in action by Gary R VandenBos( Book )

20 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 518 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.

Psychopharmacology : basic mechanisms and applied interventions by John Grabowski( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychologists are among the leaders in the laboratory and clinical investigation of drug-neurochemistry-behavior-environment interactions.

The lectures presented in this volume touch on several of these important and varied topics. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
Psychology in litigation and legislation by Bruce Dennis Sales( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the first Master Lectures in Psychology focusing on psychology and law were given more than a decade ago (Scheirer & Hammonds, 1983), interest in using psychological knowledge, and in involving psychologists in the legal process, has continued to grow. It is appropriate, therefore, that another volume in the Master Lecture in Psychology series be devoted to the interface of psychology and law. But in doing so, it was necessary to limit the coverage to manageable terrain. The field today encompasses concerns ranging from environmental policy (e.g., Pitt & Zube, 1987; Ribe, 1989) to mental health policy (e.g., Shah & Sales, 1991; Tor & Sales, in press) and from sexual harassment in the workplace (e.g., Gutek & O'Connor, in press) to psychological distress in law students and lawyers (e.g., Benjamin, Darling, & Sales, 1990; Benjamin, Kaszniak, Sales, & Shanfield, 1986). Thus, the Master Lecture Series, and the chapters in this volume, can no more cover all of the major issues in psychology and law than they could cover all of the issues in any other major subfield of psychology (e.g., clinical psychology, social psychology). The decision was made, therefore, to focus on a range of critical issues that have been raised by the intersection of psychology with two of the most visible legal systems--the courts and legislatures--and with two critical legal processes--adjudication and the creation of legislation. Because the Master Lectures in Psychology and the ensuing publications are typically limited to five presentations, this volume cannot cover the full range of issues even in this subdomain. On the other hand, the topics selected for inclusion admirably raise fundamental issues that should be of concern to psychologists who interact with lawyers, judges, and juries in litigation and who interact with legislators in drafting legislation. Relevance of Psychological Science to Litigation and Legislation Litigation provides an opportunity for parties to resolve a dispute when less adversarial means have failed. Because it often involves disagreement over what the true facts that are involved in a case may be, the resolution of this issue can constitute an important part of the trial"--Preface.

Psychology and national health insurance : a sourcebook by Charles A Kiesler( Book )

10 editions published between 1979 and 1990 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book attempts to deal with critical issues while they are still being discussed and before final national decisions are made. The various aspects of national health insurance--scientific, professional, social responsibility, and training--will become, in our opinion, controversial and critical issues for psychology in the coming decade or two. This book should be of interest to a substantial proportion of psychologists, since it deals with evaluative, scientific, and consumer issues in addition to areas of professional concern. /// Our intent was to sample the flavor of the national discussion and include divergent points of view where controversy existed, to stimulate psychologists into some consideration of the emerging issues in this critical field, and to provide nonpsychologists and other decision makers with some sense of what psychology has to offer.

Thesaurus of psychological index terms by American Psychological Association( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tenth Edition of the Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms® marks three decades of dynamic growth for the American Psychological Association, for PsycINFO®, and for the Thesaurus. From the first publication of Roget's thesaurus in 1852, thesauri have been used as a popular research tool to help readers understand the relationship of terminology and identify commonly used terms. The Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, first published in 1974, has an influential role in research because it reflects the most current trends found in the behavioral and social science literature. The Thesaurus can help authenticate the use of terms as they become accepted nomenclature. This refernce is the backbone of any research in psychology because it provides a rich source of concepts that can be used for the most precise search in the PsycINFO or PsycARTICLES® electronic databases. This edition was developed in conjunction with a team of experts who come from many perspectives within the vast field of psychology. This group collaborated with our editor to update the "language of psychology" as it appears today [2005] in the scholarly literature. The Thesaurus also links recently added controlled vocabulary with a historical note that helps the researcher navigate the literature to the source of the original concept. The historical links make the Thesaurus a more powerful tool to identify word hierarchies that are extremely helpful in the research process. We encourage your use of the Tenth Edition of the Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms as a multi-disciplinary research and teaching tool for students in psychology, social science, and communications. Best wishes in all of your research endeavors!"--Gary R. VandenBos, PhD, Publisher, American Psychological Association; from Preface, page v
