The Psychology of Hope

The Psychology of Hope

A dynamic and systematic new approach to experimental and clinical psychology. The author uses a wide range of data from a vast number of experimental and clinical studies to demonstrate how the different levels of expectation and goal achievement can be studied objectively. Building from simple to highly complex schemas, he conceptualizes hope and its counterpart, hopelessness, as both necessary and vital to motivation, action and non-action (lethargy) in animal as well as human behaviour.
