Der Band bietet für Studierende des Bachelor-Studiengangs Psychologie eine aktuelle und gut verständliche Einführung in die Theorien der Persönlichkeit. Ausgehend von klassischen Ansätzen der Psychoanalyse und des Behaviorismus bis hin zu modernen eigenschaftstheoretischen und kognitiv-affektiven Persönlichkeitssystemen, führen die zwölf Kapitel des Lehrbuches in zentrale theoretische Ansätze zur Beschreibung und Erklärung der menschlichen Persönlichkeit und ihrer Einzigartigkeit ein. Die dargestellten Persönlichkeitstheorien unterscheiden sich in ihren grundlegenden Konzepten sowie in ihrer unterschiedlichen Gewichtung der Bedeutung von allgemeingültigen Aspekten der menschlichen Natur im Vergleich zur Einzigartigkeit des Individuums. Im Mittelpunkt des Bandes stehen Theorien, die gegenwärtig in der Persönlichkeitspsychologie dominieren. Ergänzt werden diese Theorien um klassische Ansätze, die einen nachhaltigen Einfluss auf die aktuelle Persönlichkeitspsychologie ausüben und zu einem besseren Verständnis der aktuellen Theorien beitragen. Zahlreiche Kästen mit Beispielen, Definitionen und Zusammenfassungen, Tabellen und Abbildungen sowie Verständnisfragen strukturieren den Text und erleichtern die Prüfungsvorbereitung.

Does our cultural background influence the way we think and feel about ourselves and others? Does our culture affect how we choose our partners, how we define intelligence and abnormality and how we bring up our children? Psychologists have long pondered the relationship between culture and a range of psychological attributes. Cultural Issues In Psychology is an all round student guide to the key studies, theories and controversies which seek to explore human behaviour in a global context. The book explores key controversies in global psychology, such as: Culture: what does it mean and how has it been researched? Relativism and universalism: are they compatible approaches in global research? Ethnocentrism: is psychological research dominated by a few regions of the world? Indigenous psychologies: what are the diverse research traditions from around the world? Research methods and perspectives: how can we compare and contrast cross-cultural psychology and cultural psychology? The book also includes detailed examinations of global research into mainstream areas of psychology, such as social, cognitive and developmental psychology, as well as abnormal psychology. With insightful classroom activities and helpful pedagogical features, this detailed, yet accessibly written book gives introductory-level psychology students access to a concise review of key research, issues, controversies and diverse approaches in the area of culture and psychology.

Is it possible to learn something without being aware of it? How does emotion influence the way we think? How can we improve our memory? Fundamentals of Cognition, third edition, provides a basic, reader-friendly introduction to the key cognitive processes we use to interact successfully with the world around us. Our abilities in attention, perception, learning, memory, language, problem solving, thinking, and reasoning are all vitally important in enabling us to cope with everyday life. Understanding these processes through the study of cognitive psychology is essential for understanding human behaviour. This edition has been thoroughly updated and revised with an emphasis on making it even more accessible to introductory-level students. Bringing on board Professor Marc Brysbaert, a world-leading researcher in the psychology of language, as co-author, this new edition includes: developed and extended research activities and "In the Real World" case studies to make it easy for students to engage with the material; new real-world topics such as discussions of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, the reading problems of individuals with dyslexia, why magic tricks work, and why we cannot remember the Apple logo accurately; a supporting companion website containing multiple choice questions, flashcards, sample essay answers, instructor resources, and more. The book provides a perfect balance between traditional approaches to cognition and cutting-edge cognitive neuroscience and cognitive neuropsychology. Covering all the key topics within cognition, this comprehensive overview is essential reading for all students of cognitive psychology and related areas such as clinical psychology.

This important volume defines the state of the art in the field of emotion and memory by offering a blend of research review, unpublished findings, and theory on topics related to its study. As the first contemporary reference source in this area, it summarizes findings on implicit and explicit aspects of emotion and memory, addresses conceptual and methodological difficulties associated with different paradigms and current procedures, and presents broad theoretical perspectives to guide further research. This volume articulates the accomplishments of the field and the points of disagreement, and gives the brain, clinical, and cognitive sciences an invaluable resource for 21st-century researchers. Citing and analyzing the results of experiments as well as field and case studies, the chapters are organized around methodological approaches, biological-evolutionary perspectives, and clinical perspectives, and bring together experts in neuroscience, and both cognitive and clinical psychology. Questions addressed include: * What is the nature of emotional events and what do we retain from them? * Is there something about emotional events that causes them to be processed differently in memory? * Do emotional memories have special characteristics that differ from those produced by "ordinary" memory mechanisms or systems? * Do people with emotional disturbances remember differently than normal people? * Which factors play the most crucial role in functional amnesia?
