This work introduces the basic assumptions and concepts of psychodynamic psychology. Since the term psychodynamic can be applied to a number of diverse schools of thought, the book stresses the commonalities across the various schools rather than exposing in detail the differences between the theories. No prior knowledge of psychoanalytic ideas is assumed in the book.

Without losing sight of the important issues that we all encounter in our lives, the authors provide a compelling invitation to this approach to personality. Written in plain English, with numerous examples, they show how we both make and find meaning in the world that confronts us.

Invitation to Psychology provides an introduction to fundamental concepts in psychology. It seeks to address the need of both teachers and students by offering two different kinds of chapters. The first variety covers the basic data and research within each of the traditional areas of psychology. In these "basic" chapters, the authors provide up-to-date and complete coverage of important developments in each area. The second type of chapter is innovative. These "exploring" chapters examine some of the practical applications and implications of the findings discussed in the basic chapters. These describe how basic psychological data are being used in the outside world, and discuss ongoing, often controversial explorations into some frontier areas of psychology. In other words, information about explorations and applications that is often scattered through the pages of other texts is brought together into systematic chapters in this text. The dual-chapter approach helps resolve the dilemma of differing expectations of teachers and students. Key topics covered include the definition of psychology; the psychological basis of behavior; sensation and perception; states of awareness; learning, memory, and cognition; motivation and emotion; abnormal psychology and social behavior.

Test Booklet for Invitation to Psychology contains approximately 2000 multiple-choice questions that test mastery of the concepts and information presented in the 20 chapters and statistics appendix of Invitation to Psychology. The topics covered in these chapters include the following: the definition of psychology; the psychological basis of behavior; sensation and perception; states of awareness; learning, memory, and cognition; motivation and emotion; abnormal psychology and social behavior. In each chapter, questions are arranged in the order in which concepts are presented. The correct answer to each question is indicated by an asterisk. A text-page reference enables instructors to crosscheck from the text and to prepare tests and examinations on material that students have read. In preparing this second test file, the authors have modified or deleted those original questions that proved to be vague or difficult for students and have taken care to include a good blend of factual and conceptual questions. Although some are similar to questions in the first test file, most are new items that have been developed through the authors' own classroom use of the text and ancillary materials.

The ways we know, think and believe about a whole variety of key areas - different forms of discourse, psychotherapy as well as religion - have much more in common than is usually perceived. Through a series of fascinating parallels running across different disciplines, Jacobs demonstrates the possible analysis of modes of thinking and belief - from intuitive pre-thinking, through authoritative-driven thinking and belief, and personal and polymathic knowledge, to unknowing, the last concept being one that is shared by Bion, Winnicott and major mystical tradition. Using this theoretical model the book provides a map to how clients and indeed therapists might think and believe, suggesting ways in which they may be supported as they shift through different modes, with all the anxiety that disillusionment brings.

Existential psychology examines how people deal with the biggest issues - such as finding meaning in life and facing death. It deals with many of the same problems as psychoanalysis and analytical psychology, but emphasises the view that one can understand the life of another by listening to their way of seeing existence and opening up their ‘phenomenal world’. As a therapeutic approach it is recognised by the British Psychological Society and taught on a number of courses. This introductory text discusses all the main contemporary theories of existential psychology, and illustrates them with case examples. Practical implications for clinical work are considered, and comparisons with other approaches such as humanistic psychotherapy are made throughout.

Is the education system killing off young people's desire to learn? Does it damage their emotional development? What effects do examinations and tests have on them? Are we asking the impossible by making academic performance in the difficult adolescent years so important? Education is increasingly answering the needs of the marketplace, and as a result young people's experience of education has less to do with curiosity and more to do with compliance. Alex Coren uses the insights of psychoanalysis to take a searching look at our education system and the effects it has on young people.
