9781259255755: Psychology Making Connections

Challenging Assumptions. Just because we “think” something doesn’t make it true. Feist’s accessible approach to science helps students challenge their assumptions, understand research, and recognize that in Psychology, it’s not all black and white.

Virtually all students enter Introductory Psychology with preconceived notions―many of them incorrect. Psychology: Perspectives and Connections is designed to move students beyond what may seem obvious to them, to have them reevaluate the thoughts and beliefs they bring to the course. Feist & Rosenberg challenge students: Don’t believe everything you think! Students are encouraged to think critically and question preconceived notions, putting their ideas―and the ideas of others―to the test and understand that no one perspective tells the whole story.

About the Author:

Dr. Erika Rosenberg served on the faculties at the University of Delaware and the College of William and Mary and currently is a researcher at the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California at Davis. Dr. Rosenberg is an emotions researcher, health psychologist, and teacher of meditation. Her research on emotion has examined how feelings are revealed in facial expressions, how social factors influence emotional signals, and how anger affects cardiovascular health.. Her current research interests include collaborative studies that integrate Western psychology with Buddhist practices for improving emotional and cognitive functioning.

Gregory Feist is Associate Professor of Psychology in Adult Development at San Jose State University. Dr. Feist is widely published in the psychology of creativity, the psychology of science, and the development of scientific talent. One of his major goals is establishing the psychology of science as a healthy and independent study of science, along the lines of the history, philosophy, and sociology of science.   His teaching efforts have been recognized by outstanding teaching awards at both UC Berkeley and UC Davis.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 3rd edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Virtually all of our students enter Introductory Psychology with a full set of preconceived notions-many of them incorrect. Psychology: Perspectives and Connections is designed to move students beyond what may seem obvious to them, to have them reevaluate the thoughts and beliefs they bring to the course. Students often think they already know psychology. They sometimes think psychology is just common sense. Perhaps they believe that human behavior is simply a by-product of heredity. Or perhaps they think that all they need to know about psychology is best learned by reading words on a page or a screen. With this in mind, we challenge our students: Don t believe everything you think. We encourage students to question preconceived notions, putting their ideas-and the ideas of others-to the test. Through text that is one component of a rich, digital environment, we engage students in thinking critically. We continually demonstrate the importance of challenging assumptions and experiences-whether as a student or as a researcher-to understand that no one perspective tells the whole story.
