Psychology : Brain, Behavior and Culture
Students often get lost in the details ...most will never take a second psychology course ...they often have trouble relating the material to their everyday lives...Building on a foundation laid in Kowalski/Westen Psychology 4e to help students see the practical applications of psychology, the new Fifth Edition of Kowalski's Psychology includes more specific applications aimed at reinforcing the use of psychology in everyday life. This new edition has been updated with new information, while at the same time made shorter and less "busy" and contains fewer big picture questions. The 5th edition also includes an increased emphasis on research, with a goal of getting the students to start thinking like psychologists. Research is presented in a way that both applies the psychological concepts discussed and that shows how these constructs relate to students and others on a daily basis.
