Item description for The Dictionary of Psychology by Ray Corsini...
With more than three times as many defined entries, biographies, illustrations, and appendices than any other dictionary of psychology ever printed in the English language, Raymond Corsini's Dictionary of Psychology is indeed a landmark resource. The most comprehensive, up-to-date reference of its kind, the Dictionary also maintains a user-friendliness throughout. This combination ensures that it will serve as the definitive work for years to come. With a clear and functional design, and highly readable style, the Dictionary offers over 30,000 entries (including interdisciplinary terms and contemporary slang), more than 125 illustrations, as well as extensive cross-referencing of entries. Ten supportive appendices, such as the Greek Alphabet, Medical Prescription Terms, and biographies of more than 1,000 deceased contributors to psychology, further augment the Dictionary's usefulness. Over 100 psychologists as well as numerous physicians participated as consulting editors, and a dozen specialist consulting editors reviewed the material. Dr. Alan Auerbach, the American Psychological Association's de facto dictionary expert, served as the senior consulting editor. As a final check for comprehensiveness and accuracy, independent review editors were employed to re-examine, re-review, and re-approve every entry.

A help for those studying to become helpers Jul 2, 2000
I recently purchased The Dictionary of Psychology. As a student in a Doctor of Clinical Psychology program, and as an older returningstudent who is trying to catch up with other students' knowledge of psychology, I needed a concise but thorough reference book that could define the many new terms and concepts I am meeting in my training. This dictionary has already been a help to me in a recent Statistics midterm - And I fully expect to turn to it time and again in the next few years. Another good feature: it is a recently published book, current in content. Here's to A's in classwork!
