There are a number of psychological correlates and explanations for the excessive consumption of alcohol. The selection of topics covered in this chapter represents the major psychological approaches used to explain excessive alcohol use, namely, the psychodynamic, disease, and behavioral/social learning by: 9. Updating and expanding the classic Psychological Theories of Drinking and Alcoholism, this fully revised second edition incorporates state-of-the-art presentations from leaders in the alcoholism field. Contributors review established and emerging approaches that guide research into the psychological processes influencing drinking and alcoholism.2/5(2). The Psychology of Criminal Conduct, Fifth Edition, discusses the psychology of criminal behavior, drawing upon general personality, as well as cognitive-behavioral and cognitive social learning perspectives. The book consists of 15 chapters, which are organized into four sections. Social cognitive theory (SCT), the cognitive formulation of social learning theory that has been best articulated by Bandura, explains human behavior in terms of a three-way, dynamic, reciprocal model in which personal factors, environmental influences, and behavior continually interact (See Figure 3).File Size: 1MB.

Physiology & Behavior is aimed at the causal physiological mechanisms of behavior and its modulation by environmental factors. The journal invites original reports in the broad area of behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, where the interaction of physiology and behavior is the prerequisite for all published material.   Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (who in was the first person to introduce the terms "behavior therapy" and "behavior therapist" . The present study evaluated the sequentially mediating role of drinking motives (i.e. social, enhancement, coping, conformity) and alcohol protective behavioral strategy (PBSA) subtypes (i.e. serious harm reduction [SHR], stopping/limiting drinking [SLD], manner of drinking [MOD]) on the relationships posttraumatic stress symptoms had with. Drinking behavior stimulated by the sensation of thirst together with the complementary secretion of the antidiuretic hormone vasopressin (VP) from the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland comprise the major response components in the regulation of body fluid balance.
