This revised and expanded edition is a sequel to the first edition which was warmly received by the student and teaching community for its indepth analysis and refreshing approach to the subject. Psychology of Individual differences Transfer of Learning or Training Emotional Development and Emotional Intelligence Learning Disabilities and Learning Disabled Children Beginning with an introduction to the nature and scope, and the various schools of psychology, the book dis-cusses the systems propounded by Freud, Adler, Jung and Piaget, taking into account their critical importance to the subject. It then focuses on the psychology of growth and development, psychology of individual differences, motivation, attention and personality, with an emphasis on the individual's attitude towards learning, and the factors influencing learning. The text also elaborates the nature and theories of learning and the aspects of memory such as remembering and forgetting. The cognitive aspect, i.e. intelligence, and vital topics like creativity and the psychology of thinking, reasoning and problem-solving have been accorded due promi-nence. A detailed discussion on exceptional children and learning disabled children together with the educational measures for overcoming such disabilities is also included. The text concludes with an important aspect of human behaviour, namely, adjustment. Interspersed with examples, illustrations and tables, this text is ideally suited for postgraduate students of education and psychology. It can also be profitably used by teachers, teacher-educators, guidance and counselling personnel, and administrators of educational institutions.
