"The clinical psychologist after leaving the university and obtaining his first job is subject to two major pressures. On one hand is the pressure created by his training, which directs him toward caution, skepticism of generalizations, and a desire to restrict his activities to sound scientific principles, tested methods, and "approved" theories. On the other hand, his professional coworkers have little patience with his academic qualifications of statements and his longwinded statements of probabilities. They are averse to trying things out on patients. They want something done and want it done immediately. Under these pressures the clinical psychologist is usually forced to compromise. He may maintain the scientific rigor of his experimental methods in research, but in his daily work, because of the need to help patients immediately, he relies more and more on experience and empirical methods. Because of these pressures, the practice of clinical psychology in many instances is unsystematic and confused when viewed from logical or rigorous scientific viewpoints. This confusion, however, is not a necessary condition but the result of the failure of the clinical psychologists' training program to translate and relate the basic knowledge of experimental and theoretical psychology into the practical situations of the clinic, the hospital, and the school. The purpose of this book is to arrive at a systematic theory from which may be drawn specific principles for actual clinical practice, and to illustrate some of the more important applications of the theory to the practice. Rather than attempt to apply this theory to all the problems facing the clinical psychologists, we have chosen to apply it to only two of the clinician's most important problemsthe measurement of personality (personality diagnosis) and psychotherapy. Even in these broad areas the application is more illustrative than comprehensive. The theory presented is not a closed systema precise mathematical formulation that allows for strictly logical and invariable deductions regarding specific events. Not only does this theory require extensive development before it may be considered even to approximate a precise mathematical model for a system, but it must also be regarded as only tentatively tested in regard to both experimental and clinical empirical evidence. Nevertheless, the theory attempts to provide carefully defined constructs and to express as explicitly as possible at this time the relationships among those constructs"Preface.

Mit diesem Buch unternehmen wir den Versuch, dem Studenten eine Einführung in die drei wichtigsten Aspekte der Persönlichkeitsforschung zu geben. Diese drei Aspekte sind: repräsentative Theorien, empirische Daten und Meß methoden. Zuerst stellen wir ausgewählte Theorien vor, welche die Gedankengänge vieler Psychologen beeinflußt haben. Wir beschreiben diese Theorien nicht nur, wir versuchen auch, dem Studenten Wege aufzuzeigen, mit denen diese Theorien bewertet und miteinander verglichen werden können, auch dann, wenn sie von ganz verschiede nen Standpunkten ausgehen. Mit anderen Worten, wir bieten dem Studenten das Werkzeug an, mit dem er nicht nur die in diesem Buch vorgestellten, sondern auch andere Theorien verstehen und einschätzen kann. Zweitens stellen wir einige Gebiete der empirischen For schung vor, um den Studenten mit der für die Persönlich keitsforschung typischen Art von Daten bekannt zu ma chen. Die Erhebung dieser Daten und die Aufstellung eines Zusammenhangs zwischen diesen Daten und theoretischen Hypothesen wollen wir den Studenten zeigen. Hierfür beschreiben wir bestimmte experimentelle Untersuchungen im Detail, so daß der Student erkennen kann, warum die Studie unternommen wurde, wie die Daten erhoben und wie verschiedene Interpretationen auf die Ergebnisse angewen det wurden. In einigen Fällen wird diese Art des Vorgehens veranschaulichen, wie Theorie und Forschung Hand in Hand gehen können

" The concept of the "locus of control" is one of the most influential in all of the psychological sciences. Initially proposed by Julian Rotter in 1966, the year 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of this remarkable breakthrough, subsequently inspiring thousands of research studies in the human sciences - research that has only served to deepen the utility of this amazing concept. Edited by John W. Reich and Frank J. Infurna, Perceived Control: Theory, Research, and Practice in the First 50 Years commemorates this important anniversary by featuring contributions from leading figures of the time - some of whom were there at the very beginning of Rotter's breakthrough - to give readers a valuable historical record and measuring stick to illustrate how far we've come. Other contributors to this volume expertly present contemporary and cutting-edge summaries of the current state of our knowledge all while giving us a roadmap for future developments and directions. What have these developments revealed about basic human strengths and capacities? Why has this concept proven so remarkably effective in illuminating our everyday life in sickness and health? Perceived Control is a fascinating work that incorporates research from Rotter's original concept, and addresses many of the leading comparable concepts that have since evolved: self-efficacy, personal mastery, competence, primary and secondary control, and more specific topics such as health locus of control, learned helplessness, and other heuristic concepts discussed in many different fields of psychology and the allied disciplines. As Perceived Control skillfully attests, Rotter's work continues to thrive, leaving little doubt that its influence will endure for another half century of more. "--
