Psychology Applications & Developments: Advances in Psychology and Psychological Trends Series

Clara Pracana

In this volume, a devoted set of authors explore the Psychology field, contributing to the frontiers of knowledge. Success depends on the participation of those who wish to find creative solutions and believe their potential to change the world, altogether to increase public engagement and cooperation from communities. Therefore, serving society with these initiatives and promoting knowledge, as part of our mission, requires the reinforcement of research efforts, education and science and cooperation between the most diversification of studies and backgrounds.

These series of books comprise authors and editors work to address generalized research, albeit focused in specific sections, in the Psychology area. Contents show us how to navigate in the most broadening issues in contemporary education and research, in the broad Psychology field.

In particular, this book explores five major divisions within general Psychology, divided into five sections: Clinical Psychology, Cognitive and Experimental Psychology, Educational Psychology, Social Psychology, 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 invited to be extended significantly, then reviewed, and authors of the accepted chapters requested to make corrections and improve final submitted chapters. This process has resulted in the final publication of 36 high quality chapters organized into 5 sections. The following sections’ and chapters’ objectives provide information on the book contents.
