Competence Considered by John Kolligian Jr.

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"This is a genuinely exciting volume that breaks new ground by linking cognitive theory to the literatures on socialization and values. The pathways that lead from competence to beliefs about competence to actual behaviors are intriguing. Cognitive, clinical, developmental, and social psychologists will find real treasures in these chapters, and the study of competence will be greatly advanced by the compilation of these writings."-Stephen J. Ceci
