Myers (zuletzt BA 11/08) und durch "Atkinsons und Hilgards Einführung in die Psychologie" (BA 2/08) bekommen. Ein Standardwerk, das möglichst in neuester Auflage vorhanden sein sollte. In 1.

Release Date: 2006
Genre:

Die Erkenntnis, dass die Gesellschaft immer älter wird, gehört heute schon fast zum Allgemeingut. Das heißt aber nicht nur, dass immer weniger Kinder geboren werden, sondern auch, dass die Lebensspanne der Menschen länger wird. Deshalb verbreiten sich Erkrankungen, die eher im Alter auftreten, immer mehr. Alzheimer ist so eine Krankheit und zudem eine, die in der Gesellschaft weitgehend tabuisiert wird. Dabei stellt die Pflege eines Alzheimerkranken enorm hohe Anforderungen an Angehörige, Freunde und Dienstleister. "Alzheimer für Dummies" hilft die Krankheit zu erkennen, die Pflege und den Alltag mit einem Demenzkranken, Familie und Arbeit zu organisieren. In einem speziellen Kapitel widmet sich das Buch der Pflege der Pflegenden. So deckt das Buch ein breites Spektrum der Bedürfnisse der Angehörigen eines Alzheimerkranken ab.

Violent Offenders

Author: Christina A. Pietz
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 9780199917297
Release Date: 2014-10-16
Genre: Psychology

Offenders convicted of violent crimes accounted for almost 15,000 (7.5%) of the federal inmate population in recent reports; and, despite the public's perception that the overall crime rate is down, there are indications that rates of violent crime may actually be increasing in certain geographic areas and populations. In response, forensic psychologists are increasingly being called upon to understand the causes of violence, predict violent behavior and the likelihood or recidivism, develop treatment programs, and even assist law enforcement in solving crimes. The assessment of violence is an ever-evolving field of study and the need for updated analysis of personality constructs, etiological links, corollary elements, and tools for violence prediction are of primary import. Violent Offenders addresses the numerous challenges and issues facing individuals working with this population and provides broad coverage regarding specific groups of violent perpetrators. It looks at a wide-range of topics and offending populations including violent children and adolescents, intimate partner violence, terrorism, sexually based crimes, gang violence, institutional violence, and violence perpetrated by police officers. Skillfully edited by Christina Pietz, a forensic psychologist, and Curtis Mattson, a clinical psychologist, this volume offers insight into current psychological theories of violence and addresses the links, both evident and assumed, between psychological disorders and violence. Chapters are authored by leaders in their fields and cover topics such as the psychiatric treatment of violent behavior, assessment and prediction of risk for future dangerousness, special considerations for ethical conduct, research considerations, and the etiological associations of violence with neurophysiology, substance abuse, and environment. Violent Offenders will benefit clinicians and professionals working in correctional and forensic fields and is appropriate for use in clinical and counseling graduate programs that offer specialized training in correctional and/or forensic psychology and for courses in deviant behavior and setting-specific assessment.

Genre: Social Science

Economics is the nexus and engine that runs society, affecting societal well-being, raising standards of living when economies prosper or lowering citizens through class structures when economies perform poorly. Our society only has to witness the booms and busts of the past decade to see how economics profoundly affects the cores of societies around the world. From a household budget to international trade, economics ranges from the micro- to the macro-level. It relates to a breadth of social science disciplines that help describe the content of the proposed encyclopedia, which will explicitly approach economics through varied disciplinary lenses. Although there are encyclopedias of covering economics (especially classic economic theory and history), the SAGE Encyclopedia of Economics and Society emphasizes the contemporary world, contemporary issues, and society. Features: 4 volumes with approximately 800 signed articles ranging from 1,000 to 5,000 words each are presented in a choice of print or electronic editions Organized A-to-Z with a thematic Reader's Guide in the front matter groups related entries Articles conclude with References & Future Readings to guide students to the next step on their research journeys Cross-references between and among articles combine with a thorough Index and the Reader's Guide to enhance search-and-browse in the electronic version Pedagogical elements include a Chronology of Economics and Society, Resource Guide, and Glossary This academic, multi-author reference work will serve as a general, non-technical resource for students and researchers within social science programs who seek to better understand economics through a contemporary lens.
