Het vakgebied van de psychotherapie is een lappendeken van allerlei therapierichtingen.

Op heldere en toegankelijke wijze worden de meest gangbare therapiescholen besproken en voorzien van kanttekeningen.De therapiescholen worden op eenvormige wijze behandeld: - ontstaan en ontwikkeling: historische wortels, invloedrijke vertegenwoordigers en belangrijke evolutielijnen;- theorie: algemene mensvisie en opvatting (verklaring) van problemen (stoornissen);- therapie: praktische werkwijze en bijzondere strategieën of technieken;- beschouwing: een kritische doorlichting (sterke en zwakke punten) van theorie en praktijkDoor deze systematische aanpak krijgt de lezer handvatten om de verschillende therapierichtingen onderling te vergelijken. Het geheel is bovendien voorzien van pittige citaten en kritische noten. Kortom, Psychotherapie in de praktijk is een handig overzichtswerk voor een ieder die zich meer dan oppervlakkig wil oriënteren op het terrein van de psychotherapie.

Forgetting Book Excerpt:

Forgetting is the most obvious feature of human memory, whether this is everyday forgetfulness, like leaving your keys at home, or more serious medical conditions, such as amnesia. Forgetting: Explaining Memory Failure uses the most up-to-date evidence available to examine the psychological processes behind these extremes and everything in between. It explores why we have so little recollection of our childhood lives, as well as why we may create false memories of events that never happened. In this book, Michael Eysenck & David Groome use cutting-edge research to examine one of the central issues in the study of memory: forgetting. It challenges assumptions about the processing of memory, offering insights into key debates, as well as providing readers with the critical skills to develop their own conclusions on the topic. With chapters from leading figures, this book also emphasises the positive aspects of forgetting, an important and often overlooked area in the field.

What Is Cognitive Psychology Book Excerpt:

What Is Cognitive Psychology? identifies the theoretical foundations of cognitive psychology—foundations which have received very little attention in modern textbooks. Beginning with the basics of information processing, Michael R. W. Dawson explores what experimental psychologists infer about these processes and considers what scientific explanations are required when we assume cognition is rule-governed symbol manipulation. From these foundations, psychologists can identify the architecture of cognition and better understand its role in debates about its true nature. This volume offers a deeper understanding of cognitive psychology and presents ideas for integrating traditional cognitive psychology with more modern fields like cognitive neuroscience.

Features Of The Perception And Construction Of Melodies Book Excerpt:

Most people in the Western world listen to music because of emotions. They want to create or experience emotions. But music is made of tones, tones are sound waves and sound waves are physics. How is it possible that physics becomes psychology, because emotions are a psychological phenomenon? When people like a certain piece of music, they usually want to listen to it again and again. Not infrequently for years and decades. What could be the reasons for this? When people like a piece of music, it is primarily the melody that they like. For most people, the melody is the face of a piece. More than anything else, it is the element of music they remember. What are the characteristics of melodies that make them to be remembered by listeners? What features of the melody could it be that ensure being liked by listeners? Based on more than 300 keywords, over 160 musical examples, and 39 charts, answers to these and many other questions are sought and offered in this book. This book is always two-in-one. By illuminating how melodies are built that enjoy great popularity, it is a book of music theory. In this way, it addresses readers who are primarily interested in the book because they themselves invent melodies. By illuminating what psychological mechanisms and physiological responses trigger the melodic operations of composers and improvisers, it is an introduction to music psychological thinking. It combines fundamental considerations from cognitive science, psychology, anthropology, and linguistics. Thus, it is addressed not only to music theorists and musicologists, but ultimately to all readers who wish to expand their knowledge of how melodies work.
