Social psychologists have studied beliefs and such related constructs as "attitudes," "biases," "prejudices," "schemas" "values," and "worldview" for decades. But recently, the study of beliefs and values has moved beyond the boundaries of social psychology and is now of interest to cross-cultural psychology, cognitive psychology, clinical psychology, and neuroscience, as well as neighboring social science disciplines. This innovative text, authored by the creator of the widely used Beliefs, Events, and Values Inventory (BEVI), distills Shealy's work over many years regarding the etiology, maintenance, and transformation of beliefs and values. The book encompasses Shealy's scholarship regarding beliefs and values as they relate to individuals, professional development among clinicians, on a collective level of analysis, and internationally. His work has important implications for government policy regarding global topics such as terrorism and global warming. Key Features: Presents scholarship from 20 years of research on the etiology, maintenance, and transformation of beliefs and values Written by the leading expert in the field of beliefs and values Demonstrates the relevance of the study of beliefs and values to multiple areas of psychology and the social sciences Discusses implications of Shealy's work for individuals, communities, and government policy
