This book will be an invaluable source of information for students of psychology and its easily accessible style will make it an indispensable reference tool for those in related professions such as health and social work.
"I think this is great and really enjoyed the humorous asides in some of the descriptions. The dictionary is exceptionally clear and well written, and the directions to look at similar and contrasting ideas are of great value. The examples were refreshing to read and make terms more relevant to students." - Roz Brody, Brighton, Hove and Sussex Sixth Form College, UK
