Stress and its Prevention
S. K. Bhargava
The word ‘stress’ is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “a state of affair involving demand on physical or mental energy”.It is a condition or circumstance (not always adverse), which can disturb the normal physical and mental health of an individual. Extreme stress conditions, psychologists say, are detrimental to human health but in moderation stress is normal and, in many cases, proves useful. Stress, nonetheless, is synonymous with negative conditions. Today, with the rapid diversification of human activity, we come face to face with numerous causes of stress and the symptoms of stress and depression. Relationship demands, physical as well as mental health problems, pressure at workplaces, traffic snarls, meeting deadlines, growing-up tensions-all of these conditions and situations are valid causes of stress. However hard we try to go beyond a stress situation, life seems to find new ways of stressing us out and plaguing us with anxiety attacks. Moreover, be it our anxiety, mind-body exhaustion or our erring attitudes, we tend to overlook causes of stress and the conditions triggered by those. In such unsettling moments we often forget that stressors, if not escapable, are fairly manageable and treatable. Learning to understand and master stress management techniques can help prevent the counter effects of this urban malaise. The book presents an absorbing and comprehensive look at the concept of stress and explores its physiological effects our body’s stress response and its result. It also explains the most appropriate techniques to manage & prevent stress. The book will appeal greatly to the more discerning student of clinical psychology and applied health psychology. ..more

Self-Efficacy and Parental Behaviour
Manika MohanSonika Sharma
This book would provide a vision among young generation and would be helpful to develop the insight among parents and their offspring. The contents of this book enlighten the close nexus between self belief of teenagers / adolescents and parental behaviour. The authors have keenly evaluated the effect of parental behaviour by making it clear that personal enhancement of a child is not a single day job, it takes several years for developing a healthy personality and the life skills. A realistic self-appraisal and enhanced self-belief may help a child/ teenager/ student to avoid frustration, anxiety and depression and this is possible only, when the parents are able to prove themselves as 'torch-bearer'. The parental behaviour acts as a catalyst to boost the latent talent of an adolescent, which also in-turn gives clarity of perception with reference to any of the challenges, which an adolescent may face during the course of his life. A positive and matured parental behaviour provides guidance to the child for helping him to take his own decisions as and when required. The parents generally have a tendency to overestimate or to underestimate the potentials / capabilities of their offspring. Similarly, students also commit mistake of wrong appraisal of their self-worth and caliber. This book would certainly help such parents and adolescents to develop the realistic approach for their self assessment. This book would be useful for teenagers, adolescents, parents and counselors and to all of those who feel concerned with the younger ones by understanding their psychology and personality because the global development of the world lies on their shoulders. ..more

Intelligence and Creativity in Education
B. Thomas
For education to be purposeful and meaningful it should be creative. This is now acknowledged by leaders in the field of education. This is so because mere intelligence without the ability to turn it into creative activity would be more or less useless. It is generally lost sight of that creativity is the spring from which a number of disciplines emerge, whether they are medical research, engineering, architecture, automobiles or many others. Creativity has been held to be the source of the best of human inventions. Ideas do erupt, but in the joy of finding the solution, very few remember the time and the agony spent in the throes of creative brooding and thought that brought about the seeming miracle. This book explains how to unlock the creativity in children to enable them to grow up into responsible citizens of society. Beginning first with a detailed explanation of intelligence and its importance in human endeavour, the chapters include Intelligence, The Struggle for Excellence, Educational Goals—Shifting Emphasis, Nurturance of Multiple Intelligences in Early Childhood, Teaching the Cognitively Talented, A New Theory of Learning for Creativity, Productive Creativity, Creativity—Taking Learning to a Higher Level and Creative Teaching out of the Classroom. All those connected with education and the imparting of knowledge to children at any level will find this book useful, including educationists, teachers, researchers, psychologists and the general reader interested in the role of education in the growth and development of society. ..more

Consumer Behaviour
Purnima Sharma
Consumer behaviour is a dynamic and multidimensional process and reflects the totality of consumers’ decision with respect to the acquisition, consumption and disposition of goods, services, activities and ideas. Most of the marketing problems arise because the products and services and marketing programmes are not in harmony with consumer’s mind. The study of consumer behaviour tries to harmonise marketing programmes and strategies with consumer needs. In India, due to increase in diversity of population and the ever-expanding choices and freedom makes the study of consumer behaviour a must for the marketing function. The 21st century is not going to be happy with “consumer satisfaction” but is certainly with “consumer delight”. This book is an effort to pave for this paradigm shift.  The entire book is divided into six chapters. The first chapter explains the concept, significance, determinants and models of consumer behaviour. The empirical investigation for collection of primary data has been undertaken through a research methodology in the second chapter. The third chapter highlights the importance of psychological factors in consumer behaviour. The fourth chapter includes the role of personal factors. The fifth chapter incorporates the influence of social and cultural factors. The conclusion has been drawn in the sixth chapter. The book is useful to the students, research scholars, marketers, business firms and psychologists.  ..more

Awareness of Human Rights in Adolescents
Nivedita Paul
The objective of the book is to bring forth the awareness of human rights amongst the adolescents who are the future citizens of the Indian society. It is indeed the adolescents who will create and decide what is the actual value of these rights. With the awareness of their fundamental and human rights are the adolescents aware of their duties, too? This book is on to find out whether adolescents are really aware of their human rights and if they are aware how much they are adjusted in the society with regard to their culture and socio-economic status. It was accepted worldwide that promotion of human rights is the only way to world peace. So almost all countries framed laws to ensure and protect human rights of their citizens. Though next world war did not occur yet the target of peace could not be achieved within the territories of various countries. Worldwise terrorism has added fuel to this fire-destructive situation. This has proved that law or constitution alone can not protect the human rights of citizens. Now educationists have given a solution to this problem. They have suggested that human rights education might protect human rights of citizens all over the world. But this target can be achieved when human rights education becomes a compulsory part and parcel of B.Ed./M.Ed. and school curriculum. This book will be of special interest to non-governmental organisations, bureaucrats, sociologists and educationists, human rights activists and those general readers who wish to understand and be aware of wide ranging implications of Human Rights.  ..more

Learning Disabilities
Rajshree TewariAradhana Tewari
This book is a sincere attempt to reduce the clouding doubts regarding learning disabilities which indeed is the least understood disability. It often gets really difficult for parents as well as teachers; to resolve the questions of what to do when a learning disability is detected, where to go or even what exactly the problem is. The book will thus, try to explain the various aspects of learning disabilities with clarity and defined goals for all the nine chapters. The first chapter offers the precise explanation to what the problem of learning disabilities is along with a brief account on the various types. The second chapter follows with an aim to unravel all the possible causes of learning disabilities. .After this fundamental knowledge regarding the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of learning disability, rest of the chapters provide a detailed account on each type Chapter three, four, five would deal with the issues of Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia whereas Chapter six and seven would highlight the features of specific learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Syndrome respectively. All these chapters clearly outline the definitions, signs, symptoms and effects of various types. The book would have been incomplete without the coping methods. Hence they too find a place in the book along with a detailed list of all the treatment and resource centres across states in India. The book ends on a positive note with a special mention on global achievers with learning disability. We hope the book strengthens the belief among all the stakeholders that children with learning disability can also dare to dream. We also pray that this book will help some child somewhere to realise his dream and bring a smile on his parent’s face. ..more

Environmental Psychology
Rajshree TewariAnushri Mathur
The book begins by defining and outlining the field of environmental psychology. Various research methods and theories to understand the environment and behaviour relationship are covered in the next units. The first three units, thus, give a holistic idea about what environmental psychology is and how to study it. The later units, cover the type and amount of impact that our environment has on us. It is interesting to note that environment even affects our perception and cognition. Variety of environmental stressors, that are inescapable in today’s life, are also discussed at length. Whether it is any natural environmental stressor like Tsunami, earthquake or manmade problems like noise pollution or technological catastrophe, their effect on our lives cannot be ignored. Rising unmanageable population levels have given rise to new set of sensitive problems like crowding, lack of personal space and territoriality. The dearth of space, increases feeling of discomfort, kills privacy and raises the level of competition for every essential thing in life. Is such frustrating scenario healthy for a peaceful society? Certainly not! Hence, the last three units focus on how environment psychology can help us to deal with this problem and how far our government has worked in this direction. Developing pro-environmental attitude and encouraging eco-friendly behaviour is the need of the hour. This book is a small step to inculcate this thought in the reader’s psyche. ..more

Gifted Children : Identification and Development
M. G. Pillai
Many children are gifted. They possess faculties and abilities much beyond the average for their age-group. Some of them may even be geniuses with exceptional talent. But in most cases, the special talents go unrecognised in the early stages by parents and teachers and the child is left to fend for himself on two fronts. On the one hand, he finds himself an outcaste among his peers for his so-called ‘ superiority’ and on the other he fails to receive the encouragement and extra stimulus he or she needs for the proper development and canalisation of the inherent special talent and skill. This book studies the characteristics that most gifted children exhibit and how to identify and pinpoint them. It enables parents and teachers of such children to put in the extra and correct effort that, administered at the right time, will enable the child to develop his ‘specialness’ along the right lines and ultimately grow into a useful and important member of society. Educators and parents will surely find this book useful. It will prevent them from neglecting a gifted child and, vice versa, stop them from piling on pressure to produce results on children who just do not have the aptitude or talent to be exceptional, and are just average. Most important, a study of this book will prevent useful talent and skills in children from languishing or developing into frustration because of lack of identification and consequent neglect. ..more
