Psychopathology, a source book by Charles F Reed( Book )

50 editions published between 1943 and 1967 in 3 languages and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book--first published in 1958, and designed for courses on abnormal psychology and psychiatry--is intended to supplement the usual textbook material in abnormal psychology. Papers have been selected to introduce the student to the active and complex enterprise of investigation and hypothesis in this wide field. Conflicting evidence and allegiances, riddles and ingenuity, are displayed in order to stimulate an appreciation of the task of discovery in behavioral science
The thematic apperception test; the theory and technique of interpretation by Silvan S Tomkins( Book )

52 editions published between 1947 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book about a test which is barely fifteen years old--a promising adolescent emerging from the rites of puberty. The Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) has not yet attained full stature, that is certain, and perhaps this book should have awaited its further development. It is with the hope that the maturation of the test might be accelerated that I venture to publish a series of lectures delivered to a seminar on the diagnosis of personality. Many of the characteristics of lectures will be found in these pages--more questions are asked than answered, hypotheses are illustrated more than proven, much that might have been mentioned briefly is laboriously illustrated, and what might have been elaborated is expressed obliquely. It is a workbook and not a compilation of established doctrine. I have addressed myself to two audiences: those who are completely unfamiliar with the TAT and research psychologists whose interest I hoped to enlist in the exploration of a host of problems-problems of test interpretation which are also of import for the science of which the test is a constituent element. Because of these aims, the psychologist who is long familiar with the technique of interpretation and whose interests are primarily diagnostic may find too much that is well known and too much that is remote from his immediate clinical concern"--Preface.

"This book discusses affect theory. It is not primarily focused on what is current knowledge. I have sought to explore new territory. It is my intention to reopen issues which have long remained in disrepute in American Psychology: affect, imagery and consciousness. These have lately come to interest neurophysiologists and biochemists more than psychologists. This book explores positive affect, negative affect, and cognition and ideology"--Create.

Affect and behavior: anxiety as a negative affect by Carroll E Izard( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper presents a model of the human being, stressing the importance of relatively independent but interacting personality subsystems. The homeostatic system the drive system, and the affect system are the three motivational systems. The central assumption is that the affect system is the primary motivational system; affect is inherently motivating. The principal characteristics of the affect system and its relations with other personality subsystems are discussed. It was assumed that behavior that is uniquely human--constructive interpersonal relating, complex cognitive processes, creative activity--can be best understood and predicted when we conceive of affect as the motivating, cue-producing experience. The theory of anxiety (fear-terror), as well as the activation of fear and fear activators is discussed with emphasis on other affects and cognitive constructions as causes of fear. The problems of fear phenomenology, and fear socialization are considered. The paper concludes with a discussion of affect-affect dynamics, the relationships of fear to other affects in both adaptive and maladaptive functioning. It is maintained that anxiety facilitates only defense or escape and that interest-excitement is the chief facilitator of constructive behavior and creative living. (Author)
