After more than a century of extraordinary growth and development, the science of psychology at last has a reference source that defines the study of mind and behavior. Here in eight superbly organized volumes is the definitive guide to every area of psychological theory, research, and practice. The product of a unique collaboration between APA and Oxford University Press, the Encylopedia of Psychology is a state-of-the-art synthesis of classic and contemporary knowledge.
International in scope, the Encyclopedia of Psychology will be the first place to turn to for authoritative information on every area of the field — and for answers to literally thousands of questions about concepts, methods, theories, findings, major figures, schools of thought, and emerging areas of interest. Organized alphabetically, the articles range from 500 to 7,000 words in length. Multi-article entries cover major topics in depth, and the 400 biographies constitute a mini-encyclopedia in itself. An extensive system of cross-references and blind entries facilitate research from article to article and clarify links within the field. An exhaustive index makes topic location quick and easy.
The Encyclopedia of Psychology serves a remarkable variety of readers: students and their teachers in every area of psychology as well as in such related fields as sociology, social work, nursing, and allied health; researchers in the cognitive sciences and neurosciences; and clinicians and other mental health and human service professionals. It will be the definitive information, research, and reference source for many years to come.
