Summary

Discovering the history of psychology and its application areas has never been easier. This volume reviews the main currents of thought that have characterized the birth and evolution of scientific psychology. From the first laboratories of psychology to psychodynamic theory, from cognitivism to neuroscience, the first part of this guide takes you by the hand and accompanies you among the most important discoveries of the subject. The second part of the volume is dedicated to the discovery of clinical psychology, work, legal, development and the various fields of application of the subject. All this through a simple, fast and essential style of discourse. The book ends with a small self-assessment test that allows the reader to review and fix the main concepts. Forget the thousands of pages long or prohibitively expensive psychology manuals and start exploring how your mind works through a series of guides at unbeatable prices.

### THE COLLECTION ###
Psychology made simple is a collection of simple, clear and ready-to-use texts dedicated to the functioning of the human mind, whose lowest common denominator is the practicality and immediacy of its contents. From work contexts to family life, from relationships with others in search of a personal balance, everyone will be able to find answers and satisfy their desire to know, without trespassing into more complex treatments than necessary.

    Award-winning psychology professor and leading textbook author Nathan DeWall has been called “one of the most influential psychological science leaders of his generation.” Now, you can join him in a fascinating audio course that helps answer the question,“Why do people behave aggressively?”  
    Aggression is one of the most troubling facets of the human experience. As we know from the nightly news, aggression causes people to harm people they know, people they love, and people they’ve never met. Some people cause harm because they feel too much, whereas others do so because they don’t feel much at all. Our genes influence whether we’ll respond to an insult with aggression, but so does our culture. So the question might instead be: Why don’t more people behave aggressively? 
    In this engaging 15-lecture course, Prof. DeWall walks you through the briar patch of aggression to answer all your questions about the root causes of hostile behavior. Incorporating vivid case studies and psychological research, the lectures challenge you to reconsider what you think you know about aggression and offer practical tools to prevent it in your daily life.  
    Listen along with Prof. DeWall today for an in-depth look at this fascinating but troubling aspect of human behavior. 
    This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

    Many people want more money. It’s a given. It’s simple. But what they don’t understand, is that some qualities need to be developed in order to receive more from the universe. 
    One of those is stress management. We live in a hectic world with ever-pressing expectations and an increasing number of confusing directions to go into. What you need to do, is to manage your time, your cortisol levels, and your emotional intelligence in a way that you can stay calm while doing “your thing.” 
    Another is self-control. Most people have times when they lack that self-control. The human body and the brain aren’t easy to master. They have tendencies that lean towards giving into temptation. But those temptations often stand in the way of our long-term goals by switching out lasting happiness and fulfilment for instant gratification. This needs to change, and in this book, at least one full chapter is strictly devoted to that topic. 
    All in all, you will become more motivated and educated through this book.

    Tracing Your Police Ancestors will help you locate and research officers who served in any of the police forces of England and Wales from the creation of the Metropolitan Police by Sir Robert Peel in 1829. Assuming that the reader has no prior knowledge of how or where to look for such information, Stephen Wade explains and describes the various archives and records and provides a discussion of other sources. Case studies are used to show how an individual officers career may be traced and understood from this research. He also explains the range of secondary sources open to the family or local historian, many of which offer a broader account of the social and cultural history of the British police forces.

    In this charming 1877 book of grammar instruction for children, we are introduced to the nine parts of speech and learn about the rules that govern them in Grammar-Land. 
    "Judge Grammar is far mightier than any Fairy Queen, for he rules over real kings and queens down here in Matter-of-fact-land. Our kings and queens have all to obey Judge Grammar’s laws, or else they would talk what is called bad grammar; and then, even their own subjects would laugh at them, and would say: “Poor things!  
    They are funny fellows, these nine Parts-of-Speech. You will find out by-and-by which you like best amongst them all. There is rich Mr. Noun, and his useful friend Pronoun; little ragged Article, and talkative Adjective; busy Dr. Verb, and Adverb; perky Preposition, convenient Conjunction, and that tiresome Interjection, the oddest of them all."

    I'll share the specific process I use to write articles, from initial concept to final publication, including the step-by-step details. If this topic interests you, hopefully you'll gain some insights that will help you improve your craft of writing.    I don't write the way I was taught in school, nor do I write like many people would expect. I can't guarantee that my approach will work for you, but there's no doubt that it works well for me.    Obviously I write a lot, and I like to think I've gotten pretty good at it. Within the past six years, I've written more than a thousand articles and a book. In total that's a few million words of published content, enough to fill about 25-30 books...
