Description

This edition of Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour has been developed by expert local authors to help students studying in Australia to engage with and apply the concepts and theories of psychology.

Throughout each chapter of this text is work by local academics and researchers, local statistics, cases, examples; especially in each chapter's Australian Focus where we explore a uniquely Australian aspect related to that chapter.

In chapter 18, new to this edition, we look closely at Indigenous and Cross-cultural Psychology within an Australian context. Here we aim to encourage active engagement with the topic and emphasise critical reflection and the development of frameworks and strategies to assist in future study and work.
