About this book


Psychologists have long sought to understand and explain human change and development. In applied psychology there are three dominant approaches which have been particularly influential - humanistic, psychodynamic and behaviourist. Psychological Change introduces these models and, through the use of examples and case-studies, demonstrates how the theory can be related effectively to practice. It will appeal to students studying applied psychology within health studies, nursing, social work and psychology courses as well as to a wide range of practitioners working in the caring professions.
