Abnormal Psychology

This book presents a clear and in-depth account of abnormal psychology. It focuses on both clinical descriptions, using illustrative case studies at the beginning of each section, and on the implications of the major theoretical perspectives and relevant empirical evidence for clinical treatment. It provides a very readable and up-to-date review of topics including childhood behaviour disorders, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, personality disorders and models of abnormal behaviour. Alan Carr illustrates a scientific approach to the understanding of these aspects of abnormal psychology. Both the content and style of this book will help students understand a complex area of psychology.

A Guide To Grammar and Usage for Psychology and Related Fields

Why another book on this topic? The author's experience editing leading journals in psychology suggests that publication manuals and books on writing about experimentation in psychology do not adequately address grammatical usage and style. Much of the advice published for scientific writers reads as if it had been written either by English teachers for writers who do not publish in scientific fields, or by scientific writers who think that the information already available in countless handbooks on grammar and style for student writers in English classes is enough. Unfortunately, such traditional handbooks do not offer the particular sorts of commentary that scientific writers need. This book offers specific advice on a host of issues ranging from the appropriate use of abbreviations to wordiness -- and how to avoid it. Dr. Bellquist's expertise in both the English language and the language of scientific writing ideally positions him to offer guidelines on the use of the passive, the best wording for statistical presentations, and just how to describe experimental procedures, among many other topics. Complete with examples and principles to guide writing decisions, this book will assist both students and seasoned professionals in presenting their work clearly for maximum impact. This book is intended as a guide to grammar and usage for writers in scientific fields -- particularly in experimental psychology and all fields related to experimental psychology. Features of the book include: * alphabetical entries and numerous cross references on grammar, usage, and style; * numerous examples taken from scientific papers or based on actual cases; * discussions of semantic problems of grammar such as modification, predication, and statement; * and discussions of usage specific to experimental psychology, statistics, and related fields.

Speech Production and Second Language Acquisition

Part of the "Cognitive Science and Second language Acquisition" series, this volume provides an overview of the field, and proposes an integrative model of how L2 speech is produced. It examines how research on second language and bilingual speech production can be grounded in L1 research conducted in cognitive science and in psycholinguistics.

When investigating how automatic processing works in language production,one
hastoface several problems.The first ofthese isthat researchers greatly disagree
on what is meant by automaticity, and as a result, they often hold conflicting ...

Second Language Acquisition

An Advanced Resource Book

Second Language Acquisition: - introduces the key areas in the field, including: multilingualism, the role of teaching, the mental processing of multiple languages, and patterns of growth and decline - explores the key theories and debates and elucidates areas of controversy - gathers together influential readings from key names in the discipline, including: Vivian Cook, William E. Dunn and James P. Lantolf, S.P. Corder, and Nina Spada and Patsy Lightbown. Written by experienced teachers and researchers in the field, Second Language Acquisition is an essential resource for students and researchers of applied linguistics.

In the previous units, we have looked at the ways an individual may process
information, and for the sake of the argument we have discussed these issues as
if all language learners were similar. However, there are enormous differences ...

Defending Standardized Testing

The education reform movement of the past two decades has focused on raising academic standards. Some standards advocates attach a testing mechanism to gauge the extent to which high standards are actually accomplished, whereas some critics accuse the push for standards and testing of impeding reform and perpetuating inequality. At the same time, the testing profession has produced advances in the format, accuracy, dependability, and utility of tests. Never before has obtaining such an abundance of accurate and useful information about student learning been possible. Meanwhile, the American public remains steadfast in support of testing to measure student performance and monitor the performance of educational systems. Many educational testing experts who acknowledge the benefits of testing also believe that those benefits have been insufficiently articulated. Although much has been written on standardized testing policy, most of the material has been written by opponents. The contributing authors of this volume are both accomplished researchers and practitioners who are respected and admired worldwide. They bring to the project an abundance of experience working with standardized tests. The goal of Defending Standardized Testing is to: *describe current standardized testing policies and strategies; *explain many of the common criticisms of standardized testing; *document the public support for, and the realized benefits of, standardized testing; *acknowledge the limitations of, and suggest improvements to, testing practices; *provide guidance for structuring and administering large-scale testing programs in light of public preferences and the "No Child Left Behind Act" requirements; and *present a defense of standardized testing and a vision for its future. Defending Standardized Testing minimizes the use of technical jargon so as to appeal to all who have a stake in American educational reform.

Psycholinguistic Research (PLE: Psycholinguistics)

Implications and Applications

Originally published in 1979, this book represents an effort to bring together the two disciplines at the core of psycholinguistics, psychology and linguistics. It discusses a broad variety of theoretical approaches to psycholinguistics as well as covering a wide range of topics. At the time the book had four goals: to discuss many of the important contemporary issues in psycholinguistics; to explore the different views on major theoretical controversies; to provide an analysis of background literature as a framework in which to evaluate the issues and controversies; and to describe interesting high-quality research currently being done by the authors and some of their colleagues. Today it can be read and enjoyed in its historical context, with many of the chapters still relevant in psycholinguistic research today.
