This is a glossary of psychological and sociological terminology used on this site and/or relevant to its aims regarding the alignment and integration of the behavioural sciences.
The Glossary provides brief explanations and information on the concepts within the framework of Integrated SocioPsychology. Where a term is linked specifically to one of the key models, approaches or applications discussed on the site, then only very basic information is given in the GIossary and visitors should view the page on the model, approach or application for more details.
Note: this is an integrated Glossary. Academic students, when using definitions from these pages, should be careful that the meanings given are acceptable within the scope of their studies. Due to the fractured and fragmented nature of the behavioural sciences and the differences between the competing schools of thought, not all definitions given here are accepted by all schools of thought.
Comments are invited from visitors re the accuracy of definitions; and suggestions for new pertinent definitions are most welcome. Please use the Contact page for this.
Thanks and appreciation to those psychologists, sociologists, Gravesians and NLP Practitioners who have contributed directly or indirectly to the definitions in this Glossary.
