In addition to focusing on the clinical and social aspects of behavior (i.e. adjustment), PSYCHOLOGY APPLIED TO EVERYDAY LIFE emphasizes applications to all aspects of behavior, such as perception, motivation, learning, memory, and problem solving. Students are first presented with contemporary research findings in an applied area, and then shown how to apply these findings to change their own behavior or the behavior of others. Gardner writes with a conversational style, crafted to help students relate the principles of psychology to their everyday behavior.
