Character strengths and virtues : a handbook and classification by Christopher Peterson( )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Korean and held by 2,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking handbook of character strengths and virtues is the first progress report from a prestigious group of researchers who have undertaken the systematic classification and measurement of widely valued positive traits. They approach good character in terms of separate strengths- authenticity, persistence, kindness, gratitude, hope, humor, and so on- each of which exists in degrees
Learned helplessness : a theory for the age of personal control by Christopher Peterson( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When experience with uncontrollable events gives rise to the expectation that events in the future will also elude control, disruptions in motivation, emotion, and learning may ensue. "Learned helplessness" refers to the problems that arise in the wake of uncontrollability. First described in the 1960's among laboratory animals, learned helplessness has since been applied to a variety of human problems entailing inappropriate passivity and demoralization. While learned helplessness is best known as an explanation of depression, studies with both people and animals have mapped out the cognitive and biological aspects. The present volume summarizes and integrates the theory, research, and application of learned helplessness. Each line of work is evaluated critically in terms of what is and is not known, and future directions are sketched
Monkey trouble : the scandal of posthumanism by Christopher Peterson( )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monkey Trouble explores the turn toward immanence in contemporary posthumanism, which aims to extend hospitality to animals, plants, and even insentient things. This book argues that the displacement of anthropocentrism must cultivate a human/nonhuman relationality that affirms the immanent transcendency spawned by our phantasmatic humanness
A primer in positive psychology by Christopher Peterson( Book )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Positive psychology is the scientific study of what goes right in life, from birth to death and at all stops in between. It is a newly-christened approach within psychology that takes seriously the examination of that which makes life most worth living. Everyone's life has peaks and valleys, and positive psychology does not deny the valleys. Its signature premise is more nuanced, but nonetheless important: what is good about life is as genuine as what is bad and, therefore, deserves equal attention from psychologists. Positive psychology as an explicit perspective has existed only since 1998, but enough relevant theory and research now exist to fill a textbook suitable for a semester-long college course. A Primer in Positive Psychology is thoroughly grounded in scientific research and covers major topics of concern to the field: positive experiences such as pleasure and flow; positive traits such as character strengths, values, and talents; and the social institutions that enable these subjects as well as what recent research might contribute to this knowledge. Every chapter contains exercises that illustrate positive psychology, a glossary, suggestions of articles and books for further reading, and lists of films, websites, and popular songs that embody chapter themes."--Publisher's description

The psychology of abnormality by Christopher Peterson( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The book] is a comprehensive yet efficient textbook on psychological disorders. Containing only 15 chapters, it is designed to fit readily within a typical academic term. Theoretically balanced, it includes DSM-IV criteria and up-to-date coverage; it places psychopathology in its multiple contexts (historical, social and cultural); it stresses the continuity between normality and abnormality; and it attends to human diversity more than the typical textbook ... Abnormal psychology is an extremely popular course at most colleges and universities.-Pref
