Description : There are so many good textbooks in the field of this sense the book is more comparable to modern human psychology that anyone producing a new one textbooks of 'harder' sciences such as physics and must have a good excuse, ready to explain his physiology. Theories are considered important, but temerity. Our reason for bringing together the various only theories that are scientific in the sense that they authors who have contributed the chapters of this continuously interact with empirically derived facts. book is a very simple one. Most textbooks are written Theories which seldom make contact with facts (e. g. just for future professional psychologists, i. e. for Jung's theory of archetypes) are generally ignored. students who are going to adopt psychology as their There is one other point about which we would like to be explicit. Textbooks often state different theories life's work, and whose main area of concentration is psychology. These students are, of course, a very im regarding a particular phenomenon, or set of phenom portant group, yet psychology is becoming more and ena, without giving any opinion as to which of these more important to professionals in other fields as well theories might be judged superior to the others.

Description : After surveying the Western roots of transpersonal psychiatry and psychology in William James, Carl Jung, and Christian and Jewish mysticism, the book reviews the rich contributions of such differing cultures as shamanism, Hinduism, and Buddhism, illustrating the influence of these traditions on the therapeutic community. The authors then proceed to the latest scientific research on meditation, psychedelics, altered states, and parapsychology. Organizing human experience into a continuum - from a basic level dominated by biological factors to personal, psychological structures and on to complex, spiritual experiences - seasoned transpersonal clinicians discuss distinctive issues, problems, and treatments at each level. Through engaging, real-life cases, the contributors describe practical techniques, including the outcomes and risks of various interventions.

These include: Focus Points, Colour Illustrations, Activity Boxes, Research Methods, Case Histories, Self-Test and Essay Questions, Learning Outcomes and Section Summaries, a Glossary as well as Links to Journal Articles and Further Reading.

Description : This book is intended for use in the elementary statistics course in Educa tion or in Psychology. While it is primarily designed for use in the first semester of a two-semester course, it may also be used in a one-semester course. There are not five or ten competing texts; the number is much closer to fifty or a hundred. Why, then, should we write still another one? A new statistics text for use in Education and Psychology is, to some slight extent, comparable to a new translation or edition of the Bible. Most of it has been said before-but this time with a difference. The present writers realize that elementary statistics students know very little about the subject-even the meaning of I is all Greek to them. This text covers the basic course in depth, with examples using real data from the real world. It, of course, contains the usual reference tables and several new ones; it gives the appropriate formulas every time; and it accurately depicts all graphs. It is so comprehensive that if instructors can't find their own special areas of interest covered, then those interests probably don't belong in a basic text.
