This innovative, 13-chapter text examines psychological issues from the levels of the brain, person, and social world to help students actively apply psychology to their lives. Offered in digital format or on-demand custom format.

 

Through their own research, clinical work, and experiences as teachers, Stephen Kosslyn and Robin Rosenberg have found that exploring psychology from multiple perspectives further enhances learning. Examining psychological concepts from the levels of the brain (biological factors), the person (beliefs, desires, and feelings), and the world (social, cultural, and environmental factors) and their interactions helps students organize and integrate topics within and across chapters and actively apply psychology to their lives.

About the Author:

Stephen M. Kosslyn is formerly Chair of the Department of Psychology, Dean of Social Science, and John Lindsley Professor of Psychology in Memory of William James at Harvard University, as well as Associate Psychologist in the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital. He is now professor of psychology and Director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. He received his B.A. from UCLA and his Ph.D. from Stanford University, both in psychology. His research has focused primarily on the nature of visual mental imagery and visual communication, and he has published 9 books and over 300 papers on these topics. For ten years he was “head tutor” at Harvard, supervising graduate students who were teaching year-long introductory psychology courses using the levels-of-analysis approach. While actively engaged with writing and academic pursuits, Dr. Kosslyn is currently on the editorial boards of many professional journals. In his ample spare time, he takes French lessons and plays bass guitar.

She is board certified in clinical psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology and has been certified in hypnosis. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Clinical Psychology and is a member of the Academy for Eating Disorders.

Dr. Rosenberg specializes in treating people with eating disorders, anxiety, and depression.
