Book Description :

For the Love of Social Psychology examines the most exciting and important contributions to the study of human nature in the 20th and early 21st centuries. Focusing on thought leaders in social psychology today, author John Jost scrutinizes the theorists and their work. This is particularly important as the discipline faces a period of intense self-criticism and conflict over statistical methods and practices. The ideas of social and personality psychology, which may well constitute its greatest asset to society and to interdisciplinary scholarship, are at risk of being lost or abandoned. For the Love of Social Psychology is a critical component in understanding these various thinkers within the context of the discipline, and in providing an optimistic vision for students, theorists, and practitioners so they can fulfill their goals of bettering society through scientific means. Summarizes major theorists and theories in social psych Focuses on major findings in stereotypes, bias, social thoughts and behavior Allows major theorists of today to frame questions and discoveries in the history of their specific areas over time Discovers what social psych has offered the psych field and science generally in theory and discovery

Book Description :

"Reflecting the breath of love's myriad effects and possible causes, as well as the relatively recent volume of systematic scientific inquiry into these, the love literature is sprawling and unruly. Sternberg, however, hasdone an excellent job of selecting representative approaches and findings and presenting them to students in an organized, scholarly, and engaging way." Ellen Berscheid, PhD Regents' Professor of Psychology Emeritus University of Minnesota While many people view love as a nebulous concept that is difficult to study scientifically, there exists a substantial psychological discipline that studies intimate relations. This incisive text provides a comprehensive tour of both classic and contemporary theories and research on the how and why of human love. In addition to presenting the major biological, social, and cultural theories that have been developed on this topic, the book looks at what research has shown us about such essential issues as basic attraction, the life course of relationships, how personality and environment affect love, and how therapeutic interventions can sometimes improve relationships. Both scholarly and practical, the book is unique in also helping readers to understand their own relationships. Concise and accessible, the text illustrates how a love relationship can be measured and explores the questions posed by psychologists in their quest for understanding: Is love simply a function of human biology? What part do our individual personalities play in attracting and maintaining love relationships? Can people stay in love? How does being in a close relationship affect our mental and physical health? The book not only covers the most relevant research that the discipline of psychology has developed on intimate relationships, but also aims to help readers put this research into a practical context to help them understand their own love relationships. The book concludes with a review of various therapeutic approaches to improving love relationships. Case studies and questionnaires illustrate key points. Key Features: Offers a brief, accessible, and up-to-date survey of theory and research on the psychology of love Discusses how love relationships can be measured Includes short quizzes that readers can take and self-score to help them understand their own ways of engaging with love Provides concrete and practical suggestions, based on scholarly research, on how readers can improve their own relationships. Written for undergraduate students

Book Description :

This handbook is the first to bring together the latest theory and research on critical approaches to social psychological challenges. Edited by a leading authority in the field, this volume further establishes critical social psychology as a discipline of study, distinct from mainstream social psychology. The handbook explains how critical approaches to social processes and phenomena are essential to fully understanding them, and covers the main research topics in basic and applied social psychology, including social cognition, identity and social relations, alongside overviews of the main theories and methodologies that underpin critical approaches. This volume features a range of leading authors working on key social psychological issues, and highlights a commitment to a social psychology which shuns psychologisation, reductionism and neutrality. It provides invaluable insight into many of the most pressing and distressing issues we face in modern society, including the migrant and refugee crises affecting Europe; the devaluing of black lives in the USA; and the poverty, ill-health, and poor mental well-being that has resulted from ever-increasing austerity efforts in the UK. Including sections on critical perspectives, critical methodologies, and critical applications, this volume also focuses on issues within social cognition, self and identity. This one-stop handbook is an indispensable resource for a range of academics, students and researchers in the fields of psychology and sociology, and particularly those with an interest in social identity, power relations, and critical interventions.

Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Psychology - Social Psychology, Atlantic International University, language: English, abstract: The content of this paper discusses three separate, yet in my opinion, interlinked aspects of social development. We begin with the concept of social identity, the development of one’s identity almost from birth, through adolescence into adulthood. The identity as a result of our interactions with those around us creates our self-concept and ultimately our self-esteem. Our gender and gender role development adds to our concept of self and determines our concept of who we are in relation to others and the world. As we grow our interactions with those around us, commencing with the family unit gives credence to our understanding of our self-value. We learn about people’s perceptions of us through their dealings with us. As such, our self-esteem has the potential to promote or hinder healthy relationship development as we move through life from the core family relationships to our peer, significant other and spousal relationships. The success or failure of our relationships can be linked to our self-esteem. We learn about our self-perception, how others perceive us and what kind of responses we expect from those we come into contact with. Dealing with our self-esteem as we move through life, suggests that interactions are tainted or coloured by a positive or negative self-concept respectively. We will see that perception is a key determinant in the generation of frustration when dealing with those around us. These frustrations are just one component of factors that may lead to the expression of inappropriate levels of aggression. We discuss other causes of aggression and ultimately seek to outline techniques that can assist individuals to create a less aggressive or more appropriate form of anger display. As an educator, the focus of this paper has pertinence for the school environment but is not limited and moves beyond that into the world of work.

Book Description :

Is love a uniquely human endeavor? Is romantic love universally felt ... or is it a cultural phenomenon? Can we control it? Love is of concern to nearly everyone--yet it is rarely understood. Drawing material from history, psychology, sociobiology, sociology, philosophy, family studies, and other disciplines, the authors provide an overview to aid readers in understanding the complexity--and ultimate elusiveness--of romantic love. Chapters in this fascinating volume encompass a wide range of material, covering the history of love; theories and research on love; and an explanation of the meaning of love as we practice it in our everyday lives. Romantic Love will benefit students, researchers and professionals by presenting the most recent empirical work on the topic and pointing the way toward more exciting research and applications. "This engagingly written little volume presents a social psychological approach to romantic love, but also brings to bear important facts and concepts from sociobiology, philosophy, history, family studies, and sociology. It is part of a series of short-focused volumes dealing with aspects of close relationships and would make excellent supplementary reading for undergraduate courses in marriage and the family, close relationships, social psychology, or human sexual behavior."--Journal of Marriage & The Family.
