Drawing material from the major perspectives of psychology, including the psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and humanistic viewpoints, the goal of the text is based firmly on increasing readers’ understanding as well as their knowledge about personal adjustment, in order that they may continue learning and growing on their own.
