About

Overview

Straightforward and written in a friendly style, James S. Nairne's PSYCHOLOGY, Sixth Edition, uses a proven problem-solving approach to help you discover how to apply psychology to your everyday life. Dr. Nairne introduces topics by focusing on the "why" behind psychological processes before introducing what they are and how they work. You'll learn that our brains are filled with psychological "tools" that control everything from emotion to memory, and that each helps us adapt and solve important everyday problems. Nairne describes these tools, shows you how they're used, and focuses on specific situations in which they are applied. Emphasizing critical thinking and active learning, PSYCHOLOGY, Sixth Edition, provides current, comprehensive, and practical coverage that you can immediately put to good use. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Features and Benefits

  • Study tools include Learning Goals at the beginning of major sections to help students focus on key issues as they read, and Test Yourself review questions that allow students to check their understanding as they progress through the material. In addition, Concept Review boxes appear regularly throughout the text to reinforce important points.
  • A real-world emphasis is reflected in abundant applications and examples integrated throughout the text. In addition, each chapter opens with a "What's It For" preview that explains how and why each psychological process is important in readers' lives, and concludes with a "Psychology for a Reason" feature.
  • "Practical Solutions" features in each chapter relate psychology-based solutions to real-life problems, helping students apply chapter concepts to their own lives as they sharpen their problem-solving skills.
  • An "Active Summary" section at the end of each chapter asks students to write in key words to complete summary statements about important ideas and information presented in the chapter.
  • Students have myriad opportunities to develop critical-thinking skills with more than 100 thought-provoking questions included in the margins throughout the text. These questions can also be used to prompt lively classroom discussion and debate.
