Quatrième de couverture :

See the big picture with Westen′s highly accessible approach to psychology!

In this detail, you can see some of the images that make the PhotomasaicTM on the cover of Drew Westen′s new Third Edition of PSYCHOLOGY. The photographers and illustrations, some of which are from the text, reflect the many diverse aspects of psychology.

It′s sometimes hard to make sense of so many disparate and often conflicting ideas and areas of study. But jist like the PhotomosaicTM, when you take a step back you can see the big picture.

Drew Westen′s clear, engaging voice and his comprehensive, accurate coverage of current topics in psychology help students make connections between key psychological concepts and understand the discipline as a whole. Updated and revided, the Third Edition features several new pedagogical tools that enable students see these connections more easily and think actively and critically about what they are learning.

Here′s how Westen′s approach works:

  • Balanced coverage of the four major perspectives (behavioral, psychodynamic, cognitive, and evolutionary) emphasizes the role of scientific method in evaluating each of these perspectives.
  • Central Questions. Each chapter begins with the central questions that define an area of study. Throughout the text, students are brought back to these central questions. The chapter then concludes by returning to these questions and how the material has shed light on them.
  • Apply & Discuss sections combine visual imagery with critical thinking to challenge students to apply what they have just learned. These can be used for in–class discussion or homework assignments.
  • Making Connections sections link material from different chapters and sections to help students recognize the links between topics in different areas of the text.
