    DescriptionThis book has been endorsed by Edexcel and has passed the board's rigorous quality assurance programme. Edexcel A2 Psychology covers Units 3 and 4 of the A-level specification. The A2 course looks at how psychology is applied to the real world. It also examines clinical psychology as well as the major issues and debates that psychology raises. An important feature of the Edexcel course is that although there is specified material, there are also many areas where choices are available. This textbook (and its accompanying online resources) covers all the specified material and all the suggested examples where choices are offered. Within each chapter there are features to improve students' skills, including: - Explore: advice on how students can further their interest in an area - AS link: specific links to the Edexcel AS Psychology textbook published by Philip Allan Updates - Study hint: advice on how to prepare for examinations - Key terms: definitions of important terms Homework questions and extension essays (to stretch and challenge students) are given at the end of each chapter. The accompanying online resources offer additional material on selected studies and key issues. Links to these resources are indicated in the textbook. A Teacher Guide containing answers to all questions and exercises in the book, plus PowerPoint presentations and worksheets to assist the teacher, is available for separate purchase.
