Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-10-This accessible set examines the evolution of psychology from its earliest roots to its contemporary view as a well-established and respected science. The first volume, Words and Terms, is a well-organized collection of lucid and relevant definitions, often accompanied by additional explanatory material. Important People describes the intriguing history of psychology; research methods; types of therapy; and the pioneering work of psychologists such as Sigmund Freud, Karen Horney, William James, Jean Piaget, and B. F. Skinner. In Debatable Issues, contemporary controversial topics, such as the ethics of animal experimentation, the relationship of violence in children and the media, and the prevalence of the ADHD diagnosis, are discussed. The last volume, Disorders, Diseases, and Treatments, covers mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety disorders, conduct disorders, and schizophrenia, and provides useful material about their symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. Average-quality, black-and-white photographs are interspersed throughout. An excellent purchase on an often-requested topic for students, researchers, and general readers.-Hillary Jan Donitz-Goldstein, New York Public Library Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
