"Confused by the 'cone of confusion'? Andrew Colman, psychology professor at the University of Leicester, Midlands, United Kingdom, and a British Psychological Society Fellow, has created an excellent dictionary that clarifies definitions of the most significant and difficult terms in the field of pyschology, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and other related fields. Reasonably priced, this dictionary will be a terrific addition to any library."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2002.

Oxford University Press
With over 10,500 entries,A Dictionary of Psychology is the most up-to-date dictionary of its kind with coverage of all areas of psychology, together with technical words from other disciplines used by psychologists. These include psychoanalysis, psychiatry, neuroanatomy, and statistics--subjects that are often excluded from single-volume dictionaries of psychology. The definitions are detailed, but clear and explicit, with word origins and illustrations given where necessary. There is comprehensive coverage of phobias and phobic stimuli and mental disorders, as well as a list of over 700 abbreviations and symbols commonly used in psychology.
Written by a leading authority, with the assistance of a distinguished team of advisory editors, this comprehensive volume will be essential reading for professional psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, and students of psychology and related disciplines such as psychiatry, medicine, nursing, sociology, social work, and education.
