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. For the new Seventh Edition of this comprehensive, research-oriented text, the authors have sought to 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. Updated! 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. These diagrams are placed at the end of each chapter so that students will be more familiar with the material to which each linkage refers. Page numbers follow each question to direct the student to pages that carry further discussion. Updated! Thinking Critically sections in each chapter make psychological processes more explicit and accessible by providing a framework for analyzing evidence before drawing conclusions. Throughout the book, psychological phenomena are described in a way that first reveals the logic of the scientific enterprise, then identifies possible flaws in design or implementation, and finally leaves room for more questions and further research. The framework for this feature is built around five questions that guide the reader in analyzing the studies of psychology. Updated! 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. Focus on Research is organized around 5 key questions: What was the researcher's question? How did the researcher answer the question? What did the researcher find? What do the results mean? What do we still need to know? Increased emphasis on active learning helps students become involved learners, not just passive readers. New 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. Behavioral Genetics Appendix is designed to amplify the coverage of behavioral genetics methodology introduced in Chapter 2. Revised to include a discussion of the impact of the Human Genome Project, this feature includes a section on the basic principles of genetics and heredity, a brief history of genetics research in psychology, a discussion of what it means to say that genes influence behavior, and an analysis of what behavioral genetics research can and cannot tell us about the origins of such human attributes. In Review Charts summarize information in a convenient tabular format. Each chapter contains two or three of these charts to help students integrate and comprehend large chunks of information. New PsychAssist tutorials are correlated to appropriate In Review charts. Key Terms and their definitions appear in the margins, where the terms are first introduced in the text. Art Program illustrations, thoroughly revised in this edition, are clear, effective teaching tools rich with detail. The entire art program, as well as the text's overall design, has been modified to create a contemporary and stimulating learning environment. Try This! icons, directing readers to new figure and photo captions, help students understand and remember a psychological principle or phenomenon by suggesting ways in which they can demonstrate it for themselves. New Chapter! Industrial/Organizational Psychology, available upon request as an optional nineteenth chapter, is contributed by Paul Spector, University of South Florida. Statistics in Psychological Research appendix presents more details about the statistical analyses that were first presented in the chapter on research in psychology, to help students evaluate their research results.
