Product Overview

This innovative text sheds light on how people work - why they sometimes function well and, at other times, behave in ways that are self-defeating or destructive. Dweck presents her groundbreaking research on adaptive and maladaptive cognitive-motivational patterns and shows:
*How these patterns originate in people''s self-theories
*Their consequences for the person - for achievement, social relationships, and emotional well-being
*Their consequences for society, from issues of human potential to stereotyping and intergroup relations
*The experiences that create them.
This outstanding text is a must-read for researchers in social psychology, child development, and education, and is appropriate for both graduate and senior undergraduate students in these areas.
