Personality and Individual Differences: Theory, Assessment, and Application $210.00
Editors: Simon Boag (Macquarie University, Sydney, NSW, Australia), Niko Tiliopoulos (University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia)
Book Description:
Personality and individual differences research is relevant to practically every facet of human existence. For instance, since theories of persons either explicitly or implicitly guide clinical work, the field contributes to discussions of understanding abnormal psychology and provides a guide for conceptualising best treatment. Additionally, the field is relevant to understanding human development across the lifespan, and our understanding of personality and individual differences impacts upon our views of socialisation and interpersonal relations. This book presents research which draws attention to the rich scientific literature that continues to emerge with respect to personality and individual differences psychology. (Imprint: Nova Press)
