Series: Advances in Psychology Research
BISAC: PSY030000

This book focuses on the latest developments in psychology research. Chapter One reverses this trend by focusing on the extent to which discrimination leads to enhanced levels of identity. Chapter Two aims to identify barriers and facilitators affecting the social participation of adults with ASD with a view to improving interventions designed for them. Chapter Three outlines a theory of the social-emotional world implied in the work of C. H. Cooley and others.

In Chapter Four, sexual problems appearing at dependent persons and those entangled in the dependence as well as methods of the therapy work are all presented and discussed. Chapter Five assessed the extent to which an eight-factor model of motives for performing music that was found on a sample of conductors of orchestra may be generalized to another kind of music performers: Singers of Fado. Chapter Six examined the effect of Islamophobia and political orientation on perceived threats from Islamic terrorism and on the attitudes about the policy of immigrants’ exclusion in Switzerland.
