Clara Pracana, Michael Wang

In this third volume, a committed set of authors explore the Psychology field, therefore contributing to reach the frontiers of knowledge. Success depends on the participation of those who wish to find creative solutions and believe in their potential to change the world, altogether, to increase public engagement and cooperation from communities. Part of our mission is to serve society with these initiatives and promote knowledge. Therefore it is necessary the reinforcement of research efforts in all fields and cooperation between the most assorted studies and backgrounds.

In particular, this book explores six major areas within general Psychology, divided into six sections: Social Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Educational Psychology, Cognitive and Experimental Psychology, Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy and Legal Psychology. Each section comprises chapters that have emerged from extended and peer reviewed selected papers originally published in the proceedings of the International Psychological Applications Conference and Trends (InPACT) conference series (http://www.inpact-psychologyconference.org/). This conference occurs annually with successful outcomes. Original papers have been selected and its authors were invited to extend them significantly to once again undergo an evaluation process, afterwards the authors of the accepted chapters were requested to make corrections and improve the final submitted chapters.
