Bernstein, Penner, Clarke-Stewart, and Roy's, Psychology strikes an ideal balance between classic and current research, and contains substantial material on culture and human diversity, as well as updated coverage of behavioral genetics and evolutionary psychology. This text's complete learning program offers instructors, both experienced and novice, a "one-stop teaching" tool. In the Seventh Edition of this comprehensive, research-oriented text, the authors explore the full range of psychology, free from theoretical bias; blend conceptual discussion and description of research studies; foster scientific attitudes and help students learn to think critically; present lessons in a clear, accessible, and readable style; and demonstrate that psychology is an integrated discipline in which each subfield is linked to other subfields by common interests and overarching research questions.

  • Linkages feature, combined with the text narrative, highlights the network of relationships among psychology's subfields, helping students to see the "big picture" of psychology as an interrelated discipline. Beginning with Chapter 2, a Linkages Diagram presents a set of questions that illustrate three of the ways in which material in the chapter is related to other chapters in the book.
  • Thinking Critically sections in each chapter make psychological processes more explicit and accessible by providing a framework for analyzing evidence before drawing conclusions.
  • Focus on Research sections, appearing in chapters 3 through 19, examine the ways in which research methods (described in Chapter 2, "Research in Psychology") have been applied to help advance our understanding of some aspects of behavior and mental processes.
  • Emphasis on active learning helps students become involved learners, not just passive readers. PsychAssist tutorials, available online (password included automatically with each student text) and on CD-ROM, and referenced in the text by an icon in select "In Review Charts" further promote active learning.
  • Eduspace online learning environment offers homework exercises, quizzes, tests, tutorials, and supplemental study materials, including PsychAssist animations and digitized Psych in Film video clips.
