Psychology and consumer culture : the struggle for a good life in a materialistic world by Tim Kasser( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychology and Consumer Culture provides an in-depth psychological analysis of consumerism that draws from a wide range of theoretical, clinical, and methodological approaches. The contributors to this edited volume demonstrate that consumerism and the culture that surrounds it exert profound and often undesirable effects both on people's individual lives and on society as a whole. Far from being distant influences, advertising, consumption, materialism, and the capitalistic economic system affect personal, social, and ecological well-being on many levels."--Jacket
Ecopsychology--restoring the earth, healing the mind( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecopsychology represents an attempt to find ecology within the context of human psychology and, in turn, to find human psychology in the context of ecology. The feelings of isolation and dysfunction that are so pervasive today have at their root a denial of our essential connection to nature and the non-human world. To heal, we must find our way back home

Consuming Kids : the Commercialization of Childhood( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Consuming Kids throws desperately needed light on the practices of a relentless multi-billion dollar marketing machine that now sells kids and their parents everything from junk food and violent video games to bogus educational products and the family car. Drawing on the insights of health care professionals, children's advocates, and industry insiders, the film focuses on the explosive growth of child marketing in the wake of deregulation, showing how youth marketers have used the latest advances in psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience to transform American children into one of the most powerful and profitable consumer demographics in the world. Consuming Kids pushes back against the wholesale commercialization of childhood, raising urgent questions about the ethics of children's marketing and its impact on the health and well-being of kids."--Media Education Foundation website

Psychology and consumer culture : the struggle for a good life in a materialistic world( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychology seems always to have been in danger of gravitating, on the one hand, in the direction of metaphysical abstractions and, on the other hand, in the direction of a refined physiology. However, a new psychology has come into existence, borne of the sufferings and the heart aches of the mentally ill--the psychology which is called psychoanalysis. This is a psychology which had its origin in trying to help sick people, in trying to alleviate their sufferings and from the very first dealt with men and women in the raw, as they really were. This is the psychology I propose to give in outline in this book and which might well be called Humanistic not only in the accepted Protagorean meaning of that term but also because it deals with human beings, their hopes and fears, their aspirations and despairs, their good and their evil qualities as every one, but especially the priest and the physician knows them. It is a psychology which has opened the door to the understanding of man and as such I believe is the psychology which will prove of the greatest pragmatic advantage. It is some such scheme as I have outlined in this work which I think should be taught in the medical schools. Later it will find, I am sure, a much wider usefulness. Surely, however, the physician should know something of the principles which govern the operations of the most important of all the endowments of man.

Daily Hassles as Mediators of Employment Gender Differences in Adaptational Outcomes by Allen D Kanner( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previous research has shown that employed men are generally healthier than employed women, due in part to the dual role of women as workers and homemakers. To examine this explanation, the impact of four types of daily hassles (minor stressful events) was compared on two adaptational outcomes, psychological symptoms and health, for working men and women. As part of a larger study, the daily hassles of 69 employed adults were assessed for 9 months. Non-overlapping subscales of the Hassles Scale were generated, i.e., practical, family, economic, and work. Quite different patterns emerged for men and women. Employed women were more affected by practical and family hassles, but less vulnerable to economic and work hassles than men, even though men and women reported the same number of family, economic, and work hassles. Results highlight the value of assessing different kinds of daily hassles in the study of stress. The Hassles and Uplifts Subscales for the four areas studied are included. (JAC)
