While acknowledging their major debt to Europeans like Freud, Piaget, Erickson, Lewin, and Jung, American psychologists generally concentrated on developments in American psychology. And this tendency prevails in spite of the fact that innovations?in sport psychology and clinical neuropsychology, for example?have continued to come from abroad. International Psychology is a much-needed exposition of the state of psychology in forty-five countries, including the Soviet Union and the United States. Emphasizing the period from 1960 to the present, and surveying the training, research, and practice of psychologists on six continents, this volume introduces a widely dispersed network of occupational kinfolk, many of whom have scant knowledge of one another. The editors provide a panoramic view in the opening chapter, as well as an epilogue and name and subject indexes. The contributors, nearly all distinguished psychologists in their countries, represent Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Finland, France, the German Democratic Republic, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, the United States, Uruguay, Venezuela, Yugoslavia, and Zimbabwe.

The fields of cross-cultural and cultural psychology both acknowledge the role of `culture' for the constitution of a meaningful practice. There are notable differences as well as remarkable commonalities between nomologically oriented cross-cultural psychology on the one hand and interpretive cultural psychology on the other. Contributions to this book discuss recent theoretical and methodological approaches from both fields in order to explore their joint potential for an advancement of the concept of culture, for the theoretical conceptualization and methodical completion of comparative cultural studies and the scientific understanding of cultural difference. This volume includes contributions by Ernest E. Boesch, Kenneth J. Gergen, Rom Harré, Gustav Jahoda and Jaan Valsiner.

Die vorliegende Arbeit befasst sich mit Führungsverhalten im öffentlichen Sektor sowie mit Einflussfaktoren auf dieses Führungsverhalten. Hierzu wurde eine Taxonomie, bestehend aus sechs Metakategorien von Führungsverhalten, entwickelt. Die Metakategorien umfassen Aufgaben-, Beziehungs-, Veränderungs-, Außen-, Ethik- und Sachbearbeitungsorientierung. Eine Analyse von Umfragedaten, die für diese Arbeit bei Mitarbeitern und unteren Führungskräften dreier Behörden erhoben wurden, zeigt, dass diese Taxonomie sehr gut geeignet ist, die Führungsrealität in der öffentlichen Verwaltung abzubilden. Eine deskriptive Auswertung der Daten zeigt außerdem, dass es eine relativ große Differenz zwischen der Selbsteinschätzung der Führungskräfte und der Fremdeinschätzung durch ihre Mitarbeiter gibt. Diese Differenz ist bei der Beziehungs- und Veränderungsorientierung besonders hoch. Der deskriptiven Auswertung schließt sich eine Analyse von Einflussfaktoren auf das Führungsverhalten an. Die Einflussfaktoren können den vier Kategorien "Charakteri…zeige mehr This thesis researches leadership behavior and antecedents of leadership behavior in the public sector. Therefore, a taxonomy of six meta-categories of leadership behavior was developed. The taxonomy consists of task-, relations-, change-, external-, ethical- and processing-orientation. In order to answer the research questions about the actual leadership behavior in the public sector and about antecedents of this behavior, survey data were collected from street-level leaders of three German public organizations and their followers. An analysis of the data reveals that the proposed taxonomy fits the leadership behavior in the public sector well. Furthermore, a descriptive analysis of the data shows that there are quite big differences between leaders' self-perception and followers' perception of leadership behavior. The difference is especially high for relations- and change-orientation. In addition to the descriptive analysis, hierarchical linear models are used to analyze antecedents of leadership behavior. The antecedents can be grouped in the four categories "characteristics and attitudes of leaders", "expectations and interest of supervisors", "characteristics and attitudes of followers", and "management instruments and framework". The analyses show that the most important antecedents of leadership behavior are the motivation to lead and the management-orientation of the leaders, the commitment to public interest and the task complexity of the followers as well as the strategic leader selection and the leaders' use of management by objectives. The results of this thesis expand the literature on leadership behavior in the public sector by a perspective of antecedents. In addition, the developed taxonomy can be used to systematize the discussion about leadership behavior in the public sector. This study also provides information for practitioners about antecedents of leadership behavior and about differences between self- and other-perceptions of leadership behavior.

In discussing a management topic, scholars, educators, practitioners, and the media often toss out the name of a theorist (Taylor, Simon, Weber) or make a sideways reference to a particular theory (bureaucracy, total quality management, groupthink) and move on, as if assuming their audience possesses the necessary background to appreciate and integrate the reference. This is often far from the case. Individuals are frequently forced to seek out a hodgepodge of sources varying in quality and presentation to provide an overview of a particular idea. This work is designed to serve as a core reference for anyone interested in the essentials of contemporary management theory. Drawing together a team of international scholars, it examines the global landscape of the key theories and the theorists behind them, presenting them in the context needed to understand their strengths and weaknesses to thoughtfully apply them. In addition to interpretations of long-established theories, it also offers essays on cutting-edge research as one might find in a handbook. And, like an unabridged dictionary, it provides concise, to-the-point definitions of key concepts, ideas, schools, and figures. Features and Benefits: Two volumes containing over 280 signed entries provide users with the most authoritative and thorough reference resources available on management theory, both in terms of breadth and depth of coverage. Standardized presentation format, organized into categories based on validity and importance, structures entries so that readers can assess the fundamentals, evolution, and impact of theories. To ease navigation between and among related entries, a Reader’s Guide groups entries thematically and each entry is followed by Cross-References. In the electronic version, the Reader’s Guide combines with the Cross-References and a detailed Index to provide robust search-and-browse capabilities. An appendix with a Chronology of Management Theory allows readers to easily chart directions and trends in thought and theory from early times to the present. An appendix with Central Management Insights allows readers to easily understand, compare, and apply major theoretical messages of the field. Suggestions for Further Reading at the end of each entry guide readers to sources for more detailed research and discussion. Key themes include: Nature of Management Managing People, Personality, and Perception Managing Motivation Managing Interactions Managing Groups Managing Organizations Managing Environments Strategic Management Human Resources Management International Management and Diversity Managerial Decision Making, Ethics, and Creativity Management Education, Research, and Consulting Management of Operations, Quality, and Information Systems Management of Entrepreneurship Management of Learning and Change Management of Technology and Innovation Management and Leadership Management and Social / Environmental Issues PLUS: Appendix of Chronology of Management Theory PLUS: Appendix of Central Management Insights

Dougherty’s PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSULTATION AND COLLABORATION IN SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY SETTINGS, 5e, clearly demonstrates how human service professionals help others work more effectively to fulfill their work-related or caretaking responsibilities to individuals, groups, organizations, and communities. As students follow this book’s structure, they learn to develop their own personal consultation model. The author provides a generic application model that students can use to survey various approaches to consultation, examine the organizational context of consultation, and review the numerous ethical and professional challenges that consultants face as they deliver their services. Numerous new and proven case studies as well as PowerPoint slides bring concepts to life and help students learn how to deliver services most effectively. A new focus on prevention and more information on school-based consulting and working with non-mainstream families more thoroughly prepare students for professional success. This edition addresses some of the latest qualitative data gathering techniques and evaluation methods.
