Description : In a concise and readable 16-chapter format, ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY, 7th Edition, incorporates the most effective features of the sixth edition along with the latest and most important research findings from psychological science. Combining extensive pedagogical support with an emphasis on active learning, the text challenges students to learn by doing -- to actively participate and to think about what they are learning rather than just passively read written information. The integrated pedagogical program helps students master the material by supporting the elements of the PQ4R (Preview, Question, Read, Recite, Review, and Reflect) study system. Douglas Bernstein also shows how topics in psychology are interrelated and guides students in thinking critically -- including organizing select research studies around questions to help readers think objectively about research and results.

Description : Essentials is a streamlined version of the Psychology: Journey of Discovery larger text. Like JOD, Essentials approaches the first course in psychology as a "discovery experience," both in describing the scientific theory and research within the discipline and in describing the introductory students' experience in learning about themselves and others. I use a story-telling approach to describe the science of psychology and reinforce the discovery theme by including "Journey of Discovery Questions" and "Self-Discovery," "Closer Look," and "Exploring Culture & Diversity" boxed inserts throughout the chapters. Each chapter ends with a "Psychological Applications" section which applies specific chapter content to the students' lives.
Description : Understanding how individuals function psychologically in health and illness is vital to providing appropriate care for all patients and clients. With this in mind, Graham Russell has written a text for students in nursing and other health professions which examines key psychological concepts and shows clearly how they apply in everyday practice. Clinical scenarios and examples are used throughout to demonstrate how psychology may be applied to practice across a wide range of situations, in both hospital and community settings. Learning outcomes and self-test questions have also been included to help readers check their understanding at each stage. Essential Psychology for Nurses and Other Health Professionals is therefore an ideal introduction to psychological concepts for all those studying the subject for the first time.
Description : Featuring a manageable format and friendly style, the new edition of this brief introductory book was written with three goals in mind: to make the study of psychology accessible and engaging to beginning students in psychology, to provide a solid grounding in the knowledge base in psychology, and to help students succeed in the course. Nevid’s comprehensive learning system--derived from research on memory, learning, and textbook pedagogy--is featured throughout. This learning model incorporates what the author calls the Four Es of Effective Learning--Engaging Student Interest, Encoding Information, Elaborating Meaning, and Evaluating Progress. ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, 3rd Edition, provides a broad view of psychology as well as applications of the knowledge gained from contemporary research to the problems and challenges we face in today’s world.

Description : Revised to reflect DSM-5, this briefer version of Durand and Barlow's widely taught text fully describes abnormal psychology through the authors' standard-setting integrative approach--the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying the subject. Through this approach, students learn that psychological disorders are rarely caused by a single influence, but rooted in the interaction among multiple factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogy, and real case profiles--95 percent from the authors' own case files--provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book. In addition, these features ensure that readers never lose sight of the fact that real people are behind the DSM-5 criteria, the theories, and the research.
