9780060456511: Psychology of Being Human: Brief/Update

A thorough introduction to college level psychology focusing on the development of critical thinking skills. Culture and gender issues are well-integrated into the text rather than being tacked on, as all-too-often occurs. Includes abundant pedagogical tools including provocative questions, chapter reviews, demonstrations and mini-studies, tables contrasting theories and concepts, quizzes, and plentiful and compelling color illustrations.

About the Author:

Carole Wade earned her Ph.D. in cognitive psychology at Stanford University. She began her academic career at the University of New Mexico, where she taught courses in psycholinguistics and developed the first course at the university on the psychology of gender. She was professor of psychology for ten years at San Diego Mesa College, then taught at College of Marin, and is now affiliated with Dominican University of California. She is coauthor, with Carol Tavris, of Invitation to Psychology, Psychology in Perspective, and The Longest War: Sex differences in perspective. Dr. Wade has a long-standing interest in making psychology accessible to students and the general public. For many years she has focused her efforts on the teaching and promotion of critical-thinking skills, diversity issues, and the enhancement of undergraduate education in psychology. She chaired the APA Board of Educational Affairs's Task Force on Diversity Issues at the Precollege and Undergraduate Levels of Education in Psychology, as well as the APNs Public Information Committee; has been a G. Stanley Hall lecturer at the APA convention; and served on the steering committee for the National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology. Dr. Wade is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and a charter member of the American Psychological Society. When she isn't busy with her professional activities, she can be found riding the trails of northern California on her Arabian horse, Conde, or his stablemate, Dancer.

Carol Tavris earned her Ph.D. in the interdisciplinary program in social psychology at the University of Michigan, and as a writer and lecturer she has sought to educate the public about the importance of critical and scientific thinking in psychology. She is author of The Mismeasure of Woman; Anger: The misunderstood emotion; and, with Carole Wade, Invitation to Psychology, Psychology in Perspective, and The Longest War: Sex differences in perspective. She has written on psychological topics for a wide variety of magazines, journals, edited books, and newspapers. Many of her book reviews and opinion essays for The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times Book Review, Scientific American, and other publications have been collected in Psychobabble and Biobunk: Using psychology to think critically about issues in the news. Dr. Tavris lectures widely on, among other topics, pseudoscience in psychology and psychiatry, anger, and the science and politics of research on gender. She has taught in the psychology department at UCLA and at the Human Relations Center of the New School for Social Research in New York. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and a charter Fellow of the American Psychological Society; a member of the board of the Council for Scientific Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry; and a member of the editorial board of the APS journal Psychological Science in the Public Interest. When she is not writing or lecturing, she can be found walking the trails of the Hollywood Hills with her border collie, Sophie.
