Students learn how to work as a team, generate creative research ideas, design and pilot studies, recruit participants, collect and analyze data, write up results in APA style, and prepare and give formal research presentations. Students also learn practical ways in which they can promote their research skills as they apply to jobs or graduate school. A unique feature to this book is the ability to read chapters of the text either sequentially or separately, which allows the instructor or research mentor the flexibility to assign those chapters most relevant to the current state of the research project.

ISBN: 3955713458

Category: Psychology

Page: 176

View: 2842

Den Menschen als Einheit verstehen Die Rational-Emotive Verhaltenstherapie (REVT) basiert auf der Annahme, dass Kognition, Emotion und Verhalten niemals getrennt voneinander gedacht werden können: Wenn wir fühlen, so denken und handeln wir auch; wenn wir handeln, so fühlen und denken wir auch, und wenn wir denken, so fühlen und handeln wir auch. Damit ein Mensch eine psychische Störung bewältigen kann, ist also sowohl eine Veränderung seiner Kognitionen als auch seiner emotionalen Reaktionen und Aktivitäten notwendig. Die Praxis der Rational-Emotiven Verhaltenstherapie entwickelt sich ständig weiter. Die Autoren bieten in diesem Buch eine Übersicht über die Theorie der REVT sowie die aktuellsten Informationen über die Praxis und die spezifischen Interventionen, die von REVT-Praktikern auf der ganzen Welt verwendet werden.

Erweitert und neu übersetzt: mit aktuellen Verhandlungsbeispielen aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum Seit 35 Jahren ist »Das Harvard-Konzept« weltweit das Standardwerk zum Thema Verhandeln. Es hat uns gelehrt, nicht um Positionen zu feilschen, sondern sich auf Interessen zu konzentrieren und zwischen Menschen und Problemen stets zu trennen. So wird es möglich, dass Parteien zum beiderseitigen Vorteil verhandeln und Win-win-Situationen schaffen. Egal ob politische Konflikte, Vertrags- und Gehaltsverhandlungen oder Tarifgespräche – für alle Berufsgruppen hat das Harvard-Konzept die Art und Weise, wie wir verhandeln, Differenzen beilegen und Lösungen finden, für immer verändert. Der Klassiker ist um neue Fallstudien aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum erweitert und liegt jetzt erstmals gänzlich überarbeitet und in einer vollkommen neuen Übersetzung vor.
