Psychology Dictionary / Glossary for Students
(Many thanks to Gary Hadler, Principal of the ITS Tutorial School for letting me know about this very impressive psychology dictionary)
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.
Under the guidance of an editorial board of nearly 100 scholars, researchers, and practitioners, APA reference editorial staff has worked in concert with Market House Books, Ltd.— an English firm with over 30 years’ experience in compiling reference books for both British and American markets — to bring out this invaluable addition to your reference shelf.
