About

Overview

Learning is an adventure--show your students how it can also be exciting with Dennis Coon’s PSYCHOLOGY: A JOURNEY. In a course where professors are frequently confronted by students who haven’t actually read their textbooks, PSYCHOLOGY: A JOURNEY offers a proven and trusted solution--and one that can be covered in a single term. Dennis Coon’s popular text presents psychology in a way that sparks readers’ curiosity, insights, imagination, and interest--getting students "hooked" on psychology and eager to read on. The book manages to cover not only essential topics at the core of psychology but many others at the cutting edge of current knowledge. The first author to integrate the proven SQ4R (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Reflect, and Review) active learning system into a psychology textbook, Coon helps readers grasp major concepts, develop a broad understanding of psychology’s diversity, and see for themselves how psychology relates to the challenges of everyday life. Because readers become actively involved with the material, they develop a basic understanding of psychology that they take with them into their future courses and careers. And with a fully integrated technology package that streamlines teaching and motivates learning, PSYCHOLOGY: A JOURNEY offers the most complete teaching and learning solution you will find. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Features and Benefits

  • Coon’s extensive reviewing and fine-tuning of the text resulted in a number of important additions and restructurings. He made judicious upgrades and improvement on the cultural diversity dimension, making the text more multicultural in balance, as opposed to cross-cultural. You will also find enhanced coverage of the brain, with the chapters on the brain, memory, and abnormal psychology reflecting the latest understanding of the brain basis of behavior.
  • Coon has carefully restructured the material in the lifespan chapter, making it more balanced in its coverage of childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.
  • This book is known for extensive pedagogy. Within each chapter, Coon employs the SQ4R learning system: Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Reflect, and Review.
  • Survey: The chapter-opening story grabs students’ interest in the material they are about to read, while logical topic headings and attention-grabbing captions help students get a quick sense of what they will be reading about.
  • Question: Each chapter begins with survey questions that prompt students to "read with a purpose." In addition, in-text dialogue questions help pull students in to the material.
  • Read: In addition to Coon's friendly and engaging writing style, bolded key terms and a running glossary help students focus on key material, while a Psychology in Action section in each chapter promotes learning and allows students to grasp important concepts.
  • Recite: To help students study in smaller "bites," this book is divided into short sections ending with Study Breaks, which make good stopping points. Each chapter also ends with a practice quiz, and more quizzes are located online.
  • Reflect and Review: By answering Think Critically and Self-Reflect questions in the Study Breaks, students can reflect on and review what they have just read. These questions invite students to think more deeply and connect new ideas to their own lives.
  • In addition, each chapter ends with a Psychology in Action section. These discussions are filled with practical ideas students can relate to their own life. In many chapters, Discovering Psychology boxes also invite students to relate psychology to their own behavior. Critical Thinking boxes present intriguing questions they can use to sharpen their critical thinking skills. In addition, Human Diversity boxes encourage you to self-reflect on the rich variety of human experience, Brainwaves boxes show how the brain relates to psychology, and in The Clinical File boxes students see how psychology can be applied to treat clinical problems.

What's New

  • An updated Introduction offers students information on how to effectively read and study, as well as how to prepare and perform well on various types of tests.
  • A new appendix, Life After School, discusses career opportunities in the field of psychology as well as applied psychology specialties.
  • New features have been added throughout, including: "Mirror, Mirror in the Brain"; "Trapped!"; "Theory of Mind: I’m a Me!... and You’re a You!; "In the Blink of an Eye"; "Are We Less Superstitious Than Pigeons?"; "What’s North of My Fork"; "Extra Hot, Decaf, Double-Shot"; and much more. A scorable "Undergraduate Stress Questionnaire" is also now available at the end of Chapter 11 (Health, Stress, and Coping).
  • The SQ4R framework is now referred to as "reflective SQ4R" to clearly combine the comprehension-boosting power of critical thinking approaches with the memory-boosting power of the traditional SQ4R method. Study Breaks are also reorganized to better reflect this method.
  • New chapter-opening vignettes were created for Chapter 2 (Brain and Behavior), Chapter 4 (Sensation and Perception), Chapter 5 (States of Consciousness), Chapter 9 (Motivation and Emotion), and Chapter 14 (Social Behavior). New topics include coverage on oxytocin; comorbidity; Zimbardo’s prison experiment; the use of amphetamine as "study drugs"; cognitive behavior therapy; and much more.
  • Chapter 3, "Human Development", is extensively reorganized and streamlined to offer extended coverage on adult development, relative to coverage on child development. Harry Harlow's "cloth mother" studies are also now covered in the "Social Development in Infancy" section.
