About the Author:

Saundra K Ciccarelli is a Professor of Psychology at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida. She received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from George Peabody College of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. She is a member of the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science. Originally interested in a career as a researcher in the development of language and intelligence in developmentally delayed children and adolescents, Dr. Ciccarelli had publications in the American Journal of Mental Deficiency while still at Peabody. However, she discovered a love of teaching early on in her career. This led her to the position at Gulf Coast State College, where she has been teaching Introductory Psychology and Human Development for over 30 years. Her students love her enthusiasm for the field of psychology and the many anecdotes and examples she uses to bring psychology to life for them. Before writing this text, Dr. Ciccarelli authored numerous ancillary materials for several introductory psychology and human development texts. 

 

J Noland White is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Georgia College, Georgia’s Public Liberal Arts University, located in Milledgeville. He received both his B.S. and M.S. in Psychology from Georgia College and joined the faculty in 2001 after receiving his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Tennessee. As a licensed psychologist, Dr. White has worked as a consultant in a variety of settings, including adult mental health, developmental disabilities, and juvenile justice. Back on campus, he operates an active lab and with his students is currently investigating the psychophysiological characteristics and neuropsychological performance of adults with and without ADHD. Outside of the lab, Dr. White is engaged in collaborative research examining the effectiveness of incorporating technology in and out of the college classroom to facilitate student learning. He also serves as a mentor for other faculty wanting to expand their use of technology with their classes. In 2008, he was a recipient of the Georgia College Excellence in Teaching Award.

Review:

Ciccarelli and White's Psychology: An Introduction is a great introductory psychology textbook, which features an introduction that enables students to glean their learning style and how best to study, take notes, and write papers (a useful how-to for any class and any student). It covers all of the main areas of psychology in a logical and precise fashion, highlighting all critical theories and constructs.

- Laura May of University of South Carolina Aiken


Have you seen the great new Ciccarelli intro text? I really like it because it has current information that students can connect with like Psych: In the News, applying psychology to your life and comments and questions posed by real students. I also like the way she included the APA learning outcomes. I find this really helpful for the psych. majors so they can focus on mastery of the concepts and content they will be tested on when they take the G.R.E. Her writing style is very accessible for my students!

- Lee Kooler of Modesto Junior College

 

Engaging writing that covers the material in a concise manner while effectively utilizing some important pedagogical features.

- Perry Fuchs of UT Arlington

 

Thoughtfully written and assembled, engaging, interesting, and student-centered.
