The APA Dictionary of Psychology by Gary R. Vandenbos

Book Description

Currently marking 114 years since its founding in 1892, the APA is recognized, nationally and internationally, as the largest professional organization of psychologists in the world, as the source of the premier electronic reference database resources in the field, and as a major scholarly periodical and book publisher.

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.
