BOOK EXCERPT:

Known for its clear, straightforward writing, grounding in current research, and well-chosen visuals and examples, Sigelman and Rider's text combines a topical organization at the chapter level and a consistent chronological presentation within each chapter. Each chapter focuses on a domain of development and traces developmental trends and influences in that domain from infancy to old age. Each chapter also includes sections on infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. The blend of topical and chronological approaches helps students grasp key transformations that occur in each period of the life span. Other staples of the text are its emphasis on theories and their application to different aspects of development and its focus on the interplay of nature and nurture in development. This edition expands its examination of both biological bases of and sociocultural influences on life-span development.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Shorter than Weiten’s big book, PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS, BRIEFER VERSION, 8TH EDITION offers a superb thematic organization together with practical applications and examples that help students see beyond research to big-picture concepts. Often described as a challenging book that is easy to learn from, the book surveys psychology’s broad range of content with three aims: to illuminate the process of research and its intrinsic relationship to application (themes), to show both the unity and diversity of the subject (variations), and to invite students to the study of psychology by respecting their ability to master its fundamental concepts. Weiten’s themes (including empiricism, theoretical diversity, socio-historical contexts, multi-factorial causation, cultural heritage, heredity and environment, and subjectivity of experience) and variations provide unifying threads across chapters that help students to see the connections among different research areas in psychology. A dynamic, teaching-oriented illustration program further enhances these themes. At the same time, the author presents topics in a hierarchical manner, giving students handles they can use to prioritize concepts within the chapter. Weiten reinforces concepts through exercises within and at the end of every chapter.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Abnormal Psychology could not have been written a decade ago. The collaborative effort of a clinical psychologist (Rosenberg) and a cognitive neuroscientist (Kosslyn) provides students with a fascinating, progressive, and modern view of how psychopathology is studied, understood, experienced, and treated today. Like no other text, it integrates the next generation of the biopsychosocial approach by including what we have learned about the brain and its role in psychological disorders. This new neuropsychological approach shows the dynamic interplay between the neurological, psychological, and social factors involved in understanding psychological disorders and their treatment. Equally important, Rosenberg and Kosslyn include captivating clinical material that puts a human face on psychological disorders. The text includes page after page of riveting case studies, examples, quotes, and critical thinking exercises. By combining the neuropsychosocial approach with rich clinical material, students are provided with the “big picture” of abnormal psychology so they can understand and remember it, and apply it to the world around them.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Understanding Abnormal Psychology provides a thorough understanding of abnormal psychology with a focus on the integration of psychology, biology and health. It goes beyond a descriptive overview of clinical disorders to provide a critical appreciation of the multifaceted aspects of mental illness. Each disorder is clearly and succinctly explained with the support of case studies. These examples are then used to introduce the debates surrounding current research, the biology of abnormal disorders and standards of treatment. The bridge between the biological elements of brain functioning and the psychological mechanisms that are responsible for coping and adjustment is thoroughly explored. This valuable consideration of the range of elements involved in the diagnosis and treatment of clinical disorders will provide you with a broad and critical understanding of this complex and fascinating field. Visit the companion website at www.sagepub.co.uk/ramsden with a number of useful features for students, including a flipcard glossary of key terms from the textbook and a test bank of interactive self-assessment multiple-choice questions.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In spite of soaring tuition costs, more and more students go to college every year. A bachelor’s degree is now required for entry into a growing number of professions. And some parents begin planning for the expense of sending their kids to college when they’re born. Almost everyone strives to go, but almost no one asks the fundamental question posed by Academically Adrift: are undergraduates really learning anything once they get there? For a large proportion of students, Richard Arum and Josipa Roksa’s answer to that question is a definitive no. Their extensive research draws on survey responses, transcript data, and, for the first time, the state-of-the-art Collegiate Learning Assessment, a standardized test administered to students in their first semester and then again at the end of their second year. According to their analysis of more than 2,300 undergraduates at twenty-four institutions, 45 percent of these students demonstrate no significant improvement in a range of skills—including critical thinking, complex reasoning, and writing—during their first two years of college. As troubling as their findings are, Arum and Roksa argue that for many faculty and administrators they will come as no surprise—instead, they are the expected result of a student body distracted by socializing or working and an institutional culture that puts undergraduate learning close to the bottom of the priority list. Academically Adrift holds sobering lessons for students, faculty, administrators, policy makers, and parents—all of whom are implicated in promoting or at least ignoring contemporary campus culture. Higher education faces crises on a number of fronts, but Arum and Roksa’s report that colleges are failing at their most basic mission will demand the attention of us all.
