Psychotherapie Book Excerpt:

Het vakgebied van de psychotherapie is een lappendeken van allerlei therapierichtingen. Voor (aspirant)therapeuten is het dan ook een hele klus om door de bomen het bos nog te zien, laat staan dat het lukt om een keuze te maken tussen de gespecialiseerde therapiescholen.Psychotherapie; Van theorie tot praktijk is een onmisbare wegwijzer in het onoverzichtelijke landschap van de moderne psychotherapie. 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.

The Cognitive Psychology of Planning assesses recent advances in the scientific study of the cognitive processes involved in formulating, evaluating and selecting a sequence of thoughts and actions to achieve a goal. Approaches discussed range from those which look at planning in terms of problem-solving behaviour to those which look at how we control thoughts and actions within the frameworks of attention, working memory or executive function. Topics covered include: simple to complex tasks, well- and ill-defined problems and the effects of age and focal brain damage on planning. This survey of recent work in the cognitive psychology and cognitive neuropsychology of planning will be an invaluable resource for anyone studying or researching in the fields of thinking and reasoning, memory and attention.

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.
