At several hundred pages longer than other recent dictionaries of psychology, this volume casts a wide net over diverse subject areas within psychology's domain and related terms from anthropology, computer programming, medicine, molecular and population biology, pharmacology, physics, social services, statistics, and more. In fact, it can serve a number of disciplines because of the cross-disciplinary nature of its content.

/d,@%oUl r*rR0The primary audience is "psychologists, graduate and undergraduate students, and practitioners and researchers in allied mental health professions," but the dictionary is accessible for general readers as well. Though densely packed with 25,000 entries, the text is clear and readable. Definitions are concise, plainspoken, and designed to inform without mystifying readers.See alsoreferences are efficiently inserted in small caps within the definitions, andseereferences redirect readers to appropriate headwords. Appendixes conveniently list the "Biographical Entries," "Institutional and Organizational Entries," "Psychological Test and Assessment Instrument Entries," and "Psychotherapy and Psychotherapeutic Approach Entries" found throughout.心理学书籍 psychspace.com6m]0c9L;G4aAF+Xj

x6|(s|'I;~$H0Although a standard dictionary will have many of the same single-word terms, this volume is replete with phrases--major depressive episode,method of limits,naive participant,social stratification--as they apply to psychology and connected disciplines. Some terms, such asnervios, apply to a specific group, in this case, Latinos in the U.S. Another example ismyriachit, a syndrome found in Siberia. This is a reasonably priced work of great breadth and depth that will be a fine addition to academic and large public libraries.Linda Loos Scarth心理学书籍 psychspace.comNc6q7D;J1G$m1?|

Having contributed so much for so long to the development of the lexicon of psychology, APA has long envisioned the compilation and publication of its own dictionary. Most recently in the past 10 years, APA Books has been involved in a major scholarly and editorial undertaking to bring the APA Dictionary not just to APA members, but also to psychology students, allied behavioral health professionals, and the general public.心理学书籍 psychspace.com8qn"?Ro!Q r2I;T
