Description of this Book

Explore the fascinating world of the human psyche with this accessible and concise guide to the fundamentals of psychology. Broken down by subject, from the psychology of ageing to the psychology of relationships, happiness to mental illness (and with everything in between), this book brings together all the major theorists and arguments you should know, ranging back in time to the ancient Greeks - who practiced a form of dream therapy 2,500 years before Freud and Jung - all the way up to the present day. Additionally, being organized by theory, it presents a potted overview of the development of the study of psychology and shows how theories from many years ago are still relevant to our lives today. Jam packed with all the important ideas but also highly accessible and informative, Psychology for Busy People is perfect for those who enjoy the study of the mind and human behaviour.
