Psychology and life by Philip G Zimbardo( Book )
174 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 3,431 libraries worldwide
"The aim of Psychology and life is to use solid scientific research to combat psychological misconceptions. In our experience as teachers, one of the most reliable occurrences on the first day of introductory psychology is the throng of students who push forward at the end of class to ask, in essence, Will this class teach me what I need to know? My mother is taking Prozac: Will we learn what it does? Are you going to teach us how to study better? I need to put my son in daycare to come back to school. Is that going to be all right for him? What should I do if I have a friend talking about suicide? We take comfort that each of these questions has been addressed by rigorous empirical research. Psychology and life is devoted to providing students with scientific analyses of their foremost concerns. As a result, the features of Psychology and life support a central theme: psychology as a science, with a focus on applying that science to your students' lives."--Provided by publisher
The Lucifer effect : understanding how good people turn evil by Philip G Zimbardo( Book )
55 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 3,133 libraries worldwide
What makes good people do bad things' How can moral people be seduced to act immorally' Where is the line separating good from evil, and who is in danger of crossing it' Renowned social psychologist Philip Zimbardo has the answers, and in The Lucifer Effect he explains how'and the myriad reasons why'we are all susceptible to the lure of "the dark side." Drawing on examples from history as well as his own trailblazing research, Zimbardo details how situational forces and group dynamics can work in concert to make monsters out of decent men and women. Zimbardo is perhaps best known as the creator of the Stanford Prison Experiment. Here, for the first time and in detail, he tells the full story of this landmark study, in which a group of college-student volunteers was randomly divided into "guards" and "inmates" and then placed in a mock prison environment. Within a week the study was abandoned, as ordinary college students were transformed into either brutal, sadistic guards or emotionally broken prisoners. By illuminating the psychological causes behind such disturbing metamorphoses, Zimbardo enables us to better understand a variety of harrowing phenomena, from corporate malfeasance to organized genocide to how once upstanding American soldiers came to abuse and torture Iraqi detainees in Abu Ghraib. He replaces the long-held notion of the "bad apple" with that of the "bad barrel"'the idea that the social setting and the system contaminate the individual, rather than the other way around. This is a book that dares to hold a mirror up to mankind, showing us that we might not be who we think we are. While forcing us to reexamine what we are capable of doing when caught up in the crucible of behavioral dynamics, though, Zimbardo also offers hope. We are capable of resisting evil, he argues, and can even teach ourselves to act heroically. Like Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem and Steven Pinker's The Blank Slate, The Lucifer Effect is a shocking, engrossing study that will change the way we view human behavior.

The time cure : overcoming PTSD with the new psychology of time perspective therapy by Philip G Zimbardo( Book )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 219 libraries worldwide
In his landmark book, The Time Paradox, internationally known psychologist Philip Zimbardo showed that we can transform the way we think about our past, present, and future to attain greater success in work and in life. Now, in The Time Cure, Zimbardo has teamed with clinicians Richard and Rosemary Sword to reveal a groundbreaking approach that helps those living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to shift their time perspectives and move beyond the traumatic past toward a more positive future.Time Perspective Therapy switches the focus from past to present, from negative to positive, clearing the pathway for the best yet to come: the future. It helps PTSD sufferers pull their feet out of the quicksand of past traumas and step firmly on the solid ground of the present, allowing them to take a step forward into a brighter future. Rather than viewing PTSD as a mental illness the authors see it as a mental injury-a normal reaction to traumatic events-and offer those suffering from PTSD the healing balm of hope.The Time Cure lays out the step-by-step process of Time Perspective Therapy, which has proven effective for a wide range of individuals, from veterans to survivors of abuse, accidents, assault, and neglect. Rooted in psychological research, the book also includes a wealth of vivid and inspiring stories from real-life PTSD sufferers-effective for individuals seeking self-help, their loved ones, therapists and counselors, or anyone who wants to move forward to a brighter future
