Synopsis:

The Science of Psychology: An Appreciative View treats psychology as an integrated science - placing function before dysfunction. The narrative shows where the various subfields of the science interconnect. This second edition provides a flexible solution for an AP Psychology course. From its readable and lively prose to the adaptive questioning diagnostic tool and personalized study plan on Connect Psychology, The Science of Psychology ensures an accurate and timely understanding of psychology as a science.

  • Pedagogical and analytical thinking aides, intersections, and Psychological Inquiry encourage students' critical thinking and active engagement with the reading.
  • Laura King's contemporary, engaging, and personal writing style draws students into the text and encourages them to read more actively and critically.
  • The Science of Psychology adapts to students individually and provides a roadmap for success that gets students reading and studying more frequently, effectively, and efficiently. The adaptive questioning diagnostic in the Connect Psychology web-based assignment and assessment platforms ensures students understand key chapter concepts.

  • Connect Psychology - turnkey course setups are available almost immediately, or the course can be customized at virtually any level. This makes The Science of Psychology perfect for face-to-face, online, or hybrid course delivery.

  • About the Author:

    Laura King did her undergraduate work at Kenyon College, where, an English major, she declared a second major, in psychology, during the second semester of her junior year. She completed her A.B. in English with high honors and distinction and in psychology with distinction in 1986. Laura then did graduate work at Michigan State University and the University of California, Davis, receiving her Ph.D. in personality psychology in 1991.

    Laura began her career at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, moving to the University of Missouri, Columbia, in 2001, where she is now a professor. In addition to seminars in the development of character, social psychology, and personality psychology, she has taught undergraduate lecture courses in introductory psychology, introduction to personality psychology, and social psychology. At SMU, she received six different teaching awards, including the “M” award for “sustained excellence” in 1999. At the University of Missouri, she received the Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Research and Creative Activity in 2004.

    Her research, which has been funded by the National Institutes for Mental Health, has focused on a variety of topics relevant to the question of what it is that makes for a good life. She has studied goals, life stories, happiness, well-being, and meaning in life. In general, her work reflects an enduring interest in studying what is good and healthy in people. In 2001, her research accomplishments were recognized by a Templeton Prize in positive psychology. Laura’s research (often in collaboration with undergraduate and graduate students) has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, Cognition and Emotion, the Journal of Personality, and other publications . A new paper on the place of regrets in maturity is forthcoming in the American Psychologist.

    Currently editor-in-chief of the Journal of Research in Personality, Laura has also served as associate editor of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin and the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, as well as on numerous grant panels. She has edited or co-edited special sections of the Journal of Personality and the American Psychologist. In “real life,” Laura is an accomplished cook and enjoys listening to music (mostly jazz vocalists and singer-songwriters), gardening, and chasing Sam, her 3-year-old son.
