9781405191173: Critical Thinking For Psychology: A Student Guide

Critical thinking is taught at all universities, often put forward by lecturers as the key skill that can most dramatically improve a student’s understanding of a course and transform their writing.  It pervades research methods teaching, critical psychology, and a range of other core curriculum elements, in exactly the same way that critical thinking pervades any discipline, and indeed, life generally.  But what is it, exactly, and how can we apply it specifically to the field of psychology? In his relaxed and accessible style, Mark Forshaw takes modern real-world examples from psychology and everyday life to lighten the learning of critical thinking, explaining what it entails, why it is important, and how it can be applied to this fascinating field of study.

Review:

‘Critical Thinking for Psychology addresses one of the hottest topics in contemporary psychology, that of the importance of robust critical thinking as a skill necessary for underpinning scientific endeavour. Engaging, relevant and refreshingly waffle-free, Forshaw’s focus on ‘‘polite scepticism’’ encourages the reader to take the ‘‘critic’’ out of critical thinking and offers credible and practical advice on how best to develop and apply creative and common-sense critical thought to literature evaluation, essay writing and making the most of feedback.’
—Nikki Newhouse, Editor of PsychTalk Magazine

‘An essential component of all psychology degrees is described, explained and developed in a cogent and practical manner: An excellent text for all undergraduate students.’
—Professor Dominic Upton, University of Worcester
