BOOK EXCERPT:

Test Booklet for Invitation to Psychology contains approximately 2000 multiple-choice questions that test mastery of the concepts and information presented in the 20 chapters and statistics appendix of Invitation to Psychology. The topics covered in these chapters include the following: the definition of psychology; the psychological basis of behavior; sensation and perception; states of awareness; learning, memory, and cognition; motivation and emotion; abnormal psychology and social behavior. In each chapter, questions are arranged in the order in which concepts are presented. The correct answer to each question is indicated by an asterisk. A text-page reference enables instructors to crosscheck from the text and to prepare tests and examinations on material that students have read. In preparing this second test file, the authors have modified or deleted those original questions that proved to be vague or difficult for students and have taken care to include a good blend of factual and conceptual questions. Although some are similar to questions in the first test file, most are new items that have been developed through the authors' own classroom use of the text and ancillary materials.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Invitation to Psychology provides an introduction to fundamental concepts in psychology. It seeks to address the need of both teachers and students by offering two different kinds of chapters. The first variety covers the basic data and research within each of the traditional areas of psychology. In these "basic" chapters, the authors provide up-to-date and complete coverage of important developments in each area. The second type of chapter is innovative. These "exploring" chapters examine some of the practical applications and implications of the findings discussed in the basic chapters. These describe how basic psychological data are being used in the outside world, and discuss ongoing, often controversial explorations into some frontier areas of psychology. In other words, information about explorations and applications that is often scattered through the pages of other texts is brought together into systematic chapters in this text. The dual-chapter approach helps resolve the dilemma of differing expectations of teachers and students. Key topics covered include the definition of psychology; the psychological basis of behavior; sensation and perception; states of awareness; learning, memory, and cognition; motivation and emotion; abnormal psychology and social behavior.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Existential psychology examines how people deal with the biggest issues - such as finding meaning in life and facing death. It deals with many of the same problems as psychoanalysis and analytical psychology, but emphasises the view that one can understand the life of another by listening to their way of seeing existence and opening up their ‘phenomenal world’. As a therapeutic approach it is recognised by the British Psychological Society and taught on a number of courses. This introductory text discusses all the main contemporary theories of existential psychology, and illustrates them with case examples. Practical implications for clinical work are considered, and comparisons with other approaches such as humanistic psychotherapy are made throughout.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"Our primary goal has been to weave critical and scientific thinking into the fabric of our writing, and today, in this era of fake news and "alternative facts," this goal is more important than ever. Students must negotiate the Internet and social media, which contain vast amounts of information but which are also full of conspiracy theories and nonsense. Psychological science can offer students the tools they need to separate fact from fiction and pseudoscience-and to distinguish wishful thinking from thinking wisely. Therefore, a good text should not be a laundry list of definitions and studies, and its writers cannot simply be reporters. For us, the most important job of any text is to help students learn to think like psychologists and to motivate them to enjoy the process"--

An Invitation to Cognitive Science provides a point of entry into the vast realm of cognitive science, offering selected examples of issues and theories from many of its subfields.

Each chapter tells a coherent scientific story, whether developing themes and ideas or describing a particular model and exploring its implications.The volumes are self contained and can be used individually in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses ranging from introductory psychology, linguistics, cognitive science, and decision sciences, to social psychology, philosophy of mind, rationality, language, and vision science.
