9781441913555: Handbook of Gender Research in Psychology

The women’s movement of the 1960’s and 1970’s sparked an increased interest in gender research, which continues to the present time. Over the years, significant advances have been made, with improvements in methods, terminology, and breadth of content. The two-volume Handbook of Gender Research in Psychology brings these achievements into bold perspective by presenting both the current state of the field and an ambitious agenda for the future. The Handbook’s major goals―better communication between researchers, identification and addressing of knowledge gaps, elimination of bias in research and treatment―are exemplified in both volumes. 

Areas covered in Volume 1, Gender Research in Basic and Experimental Psychology, include: The history of the psychology of women, men/masculinity, and sexual minorities, the brain and behavior: physiology and beyond, learning, education, and cognition, including academic, spatial, and creative abilities. Written, oral, and nonverbal communication, emotion, motivation, and sexuality, gender roles and identity across the lifespan.

Volume 2, Gender Research in Social and Applied Psychology, covers these critical areas: Abnormal and clinical psychology, including gendered aspects of depression, body image, and eating disorders, psychotherapy with women, men, couples, and families, social psychology, including intimate relationships, group behavior, and gender prejudice, work, the workplace, and leadership, health care and health behavior, special topics, from the media to the military.

Blending the challenging with the accessible, Handbook of Gender Research in Psychology is a reference of the first order for researchers, a practice-enhancing resource for clinical psychologists and other therapists, and an exceedingly useful text for the professor or graduate student.

From the Back Cover:

A major milestone in psychology has been the shift from concepts of sex, a strictly biological construct, to gender, with its range of biopsychosocial dimensions. Accordingly, recent years have seen gender research achieve marked improvements in methods, terminology, and breadth of content. The Handbook of Gender Research in Psychology brings these achievements into bold perspective by presenting both the current state of the field and an ambitious agenda for the future.

Volume 1, Gender Research in General and Experimental Psychology, gathers a wide variety of established and emerging voices across the range of specialties to offer the latest ideas, theories, and findings in gender as applied to both women and men (and where appropriate, boys and girls), including sexual minorities. In this volume, contributors critique strengths and limitations of current research, discuss methodological issues from recruiting participants to communicating results, and address cultural and other diversity considerations that have often been absent from the field. Their findings offer a fresh perspective, whether readers are involved in testing hypotheses, developing models, conducting experiments, or interpreting data. All chapters include recommendations for future avenues for research.

Areas covered in Volume 1:

  • The history of the psychology of women, men/masculinity, and sexual minorities
  • Qu
antitative and qualitative research methods, including reviews of commonly used measures

  • The brain and behavior: physiology and beyond
  • Learning, education, and cognition, including academic, spatial, and creative abilities
  • Written, oral, and nonverbal communication
  • Emotion, motivation, and sexuality
  • Gender roles and identity across the lifespan
  • Psychologists, neuroscientists, gender researchers, and professors and graduate students in related fields will welcome Volume 1 of the Handbook of Gender Research in Psychology as refreshingly informative and eminently practical.
