WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY? FOUNDATIONS, APPLICATIONS, AND INTEGRATION includes some of the most effective features from Pastorino and Doyle-Portillo's previous two texts, as well as new and innovative features to excite students about the field of psychology. The text is organized around the foundational areas of psychology emphasized in the latest version of the APA guidelines. It incorporates the authors' successful and engaging teaching approach, which motivates students to read and captures their curiosity from the very beginning. The parts open with attention-grabbing case studies that have drawn rave reviews from students. Each case study is threaded throughout all of the chapters of the section, providing students with a view of the content that is both integrated and applied to real life. The accompanying MindTap™ online learning platform further integrates the case studies through the chapters; each chapter in MindTap opens with a discussion activity that encourages students to apply psychology lessons to their own lives.
