9780199235919: Applied Psychology: Putting Theory into Practice

For many students, the lecture hall or seminar room may seem vastly removed from the reality of everyday life. Applied Psychology: Putting Theory into Practice, Second Edition, demystifies the link between the study of psychology and psychology in the real world.

The book is structured as a series of "rooms", each examining a field in which psychology has a significant impact. Each room contains an overview of the key psychological concepts applicable to each situation and provides a number of case studies detailing the psychologist's input and its effects. The rooms include: The Crime Room, which focuses on forensic psychology; The Work Room, which looks at occupational psychology; The Teaching Room, which explores educational psychology; and more.

Each chapter concludes with thought-provoking discussion questions that encourage students to engage in lively debates.

Now in its second edition, the text incorporates new illustrated chapter openers that help to support and reflect the written content. It also includes two brand-new chapters--Chapter 10: The Teaching Room and Chapter 11: The Nature Room.

An invaluable resource for all students of psychology, Applied Psychology: Putting Theory into Practice is ideal for undergraduate courses in applied psychology.
