Michael Passer and Ronald Smith pooled their 25 years of combined experience in teaching Introduction to Psychology to bring you an innovative new approach to unveiling the science of Psychology. The goal of Psychology: Frontiers and Applications is to share with students the excitement the authors have found in the study of behavior and to make the course more exciting for you to teach. To achieve this goal, Drs. Passer and Smith present Psychology from a perspective that repeatedly emphasizes the linkages between basic science and applied science. Students discover the connections between theoretical research findings and practical solutions to problems in society. This approach teaches students to think more like psychologists- viewing the world of behavior in a more analytical, sophisticated way which includes considering the multiple factors that result in behavior.
