Wiley, 1995 - Psychology - 594 pages
Wiley's English-Spanish, Spanish-English Dictionary of Psychology and Psychiatry is the only book of its kind. It provides concise, comprehensive, and current coverage of virtually every word or phrase used in the study and practice of psychiatry and psychology. This unique and useful resource contains more than 62,000 entries—30,000 plus in each language—covering all disciplines and subdisciplines, both research and clinical. The equivalents provided are designed to be understood by a majority of fluent speakers, especially those trained in these fields.

This dictionary's extremely user-friendly format directs you instantly to the precise equivalent you need without first "rerouting" you through a maze of other irrelevant terms and phrases. Gender-neutral equivalents are provided, and in cases where the gender-specific term is the norm, both are given. For idiomatic expressions, conceptual equivalents are provided rather than literal translations. Phrases that begin with the same word or words are provided as separate entries, and the same is true for words that serve more than one grammatical function (e.g., articulate).

This indispensable tool encourages and facilitates the sharing of ideas across linguistic, cultural, and international boundaries. For psychiatrists, psychologists, students, translators, and interpreters who need quick, easy access to equivalent terms in Spanish and English, there is simply no other source.
