Psychology is a fascinating subject which attracts much interest from both students and the general public. It covers the whole span of human activity from childhood development, to the study of the elusive concept of consciousness to disorders, such as those based around anxiety, mood and eating.

The Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Psychology addresses all these issues and more, and is a core reference for any student of psychology. It is authoritative and accessible, and covers the basic curriculum content of a degree course along with more specialised material in areas of widespread interest.



This important reference book presents more than 1500 different entries grouped into 8 thematic topic areas, and on a range of levels from brief definitions to more substantial discussions which allow the reader to obtain a fuller grasp of important terms and concepts. For key issues, the explanation is supported with illustrations, tables and photographs, and relevant contemporary references are provided throughout to allow the reader to pursue more widely their particular interests. The book is comprehensively cross-referenced for ease of use.
