Book Description :

Self-Control in Animals and People takes an interdisciplinary look at what self-control is, how it works, and whether humans are alone as a species in their ability to demonstrate self-control. The book outlines historical and recent empirical approaches to understanding when self-control succeeds and fails, and which species may share with humans the ability to anticipate better future outcomes. It also provides readers with in-depth explorations of whether various species can delay gratification, the ways in which people and animals exhibit other forms of self-control, what influences the capacity and expression of self-control, and much more. In addition to its comprehensive coverage of self-control research, the book also describes self-control assessment tests that can be used with young children, adults, and a wide variety of nonhuman species, with the goal of making fair and clear comparisons among the groups. This combination makes Self-Control in Animals and People a valuable resource for cognitive, developmental, and clinical psychologists, philosophers, academic students and researchers in psychology and the social sciences, and animal behaviorists. Provides a comprehensive perspective of the evolutionary emergence of self-control across species Explores different "kinds" of self-control and their links to one another, and whether self-control can be improved or strengthened Offers insight on mental time travel (chronesthesia) and how it relates to self-control Demonstrates how to develop self-control tests for human and nonhuman animals, and how to make fair and clear comparisons among those groups

The Science of Self Control

The Science of Self Control Book
Author : Howard RACHLIN
Publisher : Harvard University Press
Release : 2009-06-30
ISBN : 0674042514
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

This book proposes a new science of self-control based on the principles of behavioral psychology and economics. Claiming that insight and self-knowledge are insufficient for controlling one's behavior, Howard Rachlin argues that the only way to achieve such control--and ultimately happiness--is through the development of harmonious patterns of behavior. Most personal problems with self-control arise because people have difficulty delaying immediate gratification for a better future reward. To avoid those problems, the author presents a strategy of "soft commitment," consisting of the development of valuable patterns of behavior that bridge over individual temptations.

Book Description :

Why can't I stay on a diet? Why do I put off studying for tests and writing reports? Why can't I save any money? Self Control: Waiting Until Tomorrow for What You Want Today provides a comprehensive answer to the question of why it is so difficult for some people (and animals) to show self-control under certain conditions. Alexandra W. Logue explains how evolution has affected our ability to choose actions that, over the long run, will result in valuable consequences. She argues that evolutionary factors have caused us to discount delayed events, making it difficult to wait or work for things that may be important to us, but which may not occur for some time. Integrating both basic and applied research on self-control, Logue describes the research base that links self-control and evolution, in addition to detailing methods that can be used to lessen the constraints of our evolutionary heritage. The author also describes applications of basic research to understanding and treating a wide variety of self-control problems.

Book Description :

Behavior therapy has made significant inroads into a number of clinical problems. Recently, an American Psychological Association task force concluded that behavioral treatments for problems such as skill deficits, panic disorder phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, etc., can be "validated." With a move away from contemporary learning research, this book is the right book at the right time. In recent years, behavior therapists have largely not kept up with the developments in learning research and theory. This book attempts to improve the field's future prospects by providing a readable, comprehensive, and accurate description of contemporary learning research. This edited volume covers all of the major dimensions of the field and encourages clinicians to apply contemporary learning research to clinical problems. Topics include: classical conditioning, inhibition, obsessive-compulsive disorders, latent inhibition, punishment, extinction, stimulus equivalence, and much more. Current and future clinicians and behavior therapists.
