InScience Press is pleased to publish the book entitled Psychology Applications & Developments II as part of the Advances in Psychology and Psychological Trends series. These series of books comprise authors and editors work to address generalized research, albeit focused in specific sections, in the Psychology area.

In this second volume, a committed set of authors explore the Psychology field, contributing to the frontiers of knowledge. Success depends on the participation of those who wish to find creative solutions and believe their potential to change the world, altogether, to increase public engagement and cooperation from communities. Part of our mission is to serve society with these initiatives and promote knowledge, therefore it requires the reinforcement of research efforts, education and science and cooperation between the most diverse studies and backgrounds.

Contents show us how to navigate in the most broadening issues in contemporary education and research, in the broad Psychology field. In particular, this book explores four major divisions within general Psychology, divided into four sections: Clinical Psychology, Cognitive and Experimental Psychology, Educational Psychology and Social Psychology. Each section comprises chapters that have emerged from extended and peer reviewed selected papers originally published in the proceedings of the International Psychological Applications Conference and Trends (InPACT) conference series (http://www.inpact- psychologyconference.org/). This conference occurs annually with successful outcomes. Original papers have been selected and invited to be extended significantly, then reviewed, and authors of the accepted chapters requested to make corrections and improve final submitted chapters. This process has resulted in the final publication of 14 high quality chapters organized into 4 sections.
