  • Industrial psychology began almost as soon as psychology had developed enough of a science for it to be applied to industry. As early as the 1890s, Hugo Munsterberg, the German American psychologist, was involved with the selection of street car operators (cf. Koppes, 2007), and by the 1920s, business applications of psychology in employee selection, advertising, and organizational design were thriving. Industrial psychology was one of the four original specialties of the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) in 1947.

  • Cultural diversity is one of the most important topics in the world today. Here in the United States, we live, work, and play with an increasing number of people from all cultures, countries, and walks of life. New immigrants alone make up 10% of the total U.S. population, and that does not include all of the cultural diversity that has existed in this country for decades. In many other countries as well—in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania—people of different countries and cultures come together more today than ever before.

  • When one thinks of police and police psychology, one might assume that the practice of police psychology has been around almost as long as the profes- sion, which dates back some 200 years, but police psychology is a relatively new specialty, which falls under the umbrella of forensic psychology. Al- though the profession of policing dates back to the early 1800s, it wasn’t until 1908 that it began developing standards and training for police recruits. h e fi rst such professional training program was established by August Vollmer in Berkeley, California.

  • In the opinion of Dorothea Brandt, author of the famous Becoming a Writer (1981), all writing is autobiographical in one way or another. Hence this book may be seen to represent not only something about its topic, person-centred counselling psychology, but also something about me, as its author. Certainly, the focus of the book evolved from the disparate strands of my own career, firstly as an academic psychologist, then, as a person-centred counsellor, and now as a counselling psychologist.

  • In my professional life I have been asked many times the simple question: What is transpersonal psychology, counselling or psychotherapy? The answer is straightforward: it is a broad transcultural theory of human nature that posits that human beings are more than physical and psychological beings, with some form of spirituality being a reasonable bet. Oh, and by the way, it is also a discrete field of study that could be conceived as having had about 40 years of academic recognition.

  • More than an accidental injury, more than a serious illness, more than a natural disaster, the trauma of crime victimization goes beyond physical and psychological injury: It robs us of the very faith we have in the human world. Although eclipsed in recent headlines by terrorism, the common everyday violations of civilized behavior that our own citizens continue to perpetrate on one another are no less wrenching.

  • Some years ago in one of those all too rare moments of reflection it occurred to me that I was only three lifetimes away from the very beginnings of modern psychology. It is generally agreed, as we will see, that what we call "scientific psychology" began with Wundt's laboratory at Leipzig around 1879. Similarly, applied psychology is seen to have begun with the work of Francis Galton in England at about the same time. A short time later James McKeen Cattell, one of Wundfs first American students received his Ph.D. at Leipzig and went on to work briefly with Galton.

  • In 1977, Dr. George Engel’s seminal article on the biopsychosocial model of disease, “The Need for a New Medical Model: A Challenge for Biomedicine,” was published in Science. Over 20 years later, the article is still required reading in many training programs in psychiatry, nursing, psychology, and social work, because the biopsychosocial model advances a comprehensive understanding of disease and treatment. The model is derived from general systems theory, which proposes that each system affects and is affected by the other systems....
