Manufacturer Description

Have you ever wondered what differentiates a compensatory task from a disjunctive task or what "removing harmful consequences" signifies in professional ethics? Do you know the features of dysexecutive syndrome or what kriging is? How about what developmental psychologists mean by parental perplexity in the context of the parent–child relationship? The beginnings of a better comprehension of these and many other questions can be found in the second edition of the critically acclaimed APA Dictionary of Psychology®.

This second edition of a landmark reference resource—created not only for psychologists, clinicians, students, and professionals from allied mental health professions, but for all interested readers—offers definitive information on the lexicon of the field, including:

* Thousands of incisive cross-references that deepen the user’s comprehension of related topics
* More than 400 brief biographical entries on historical figures in psychology and other related significant areas—four times more than the first edition
