About The Solution

Overview

Weiten's PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS, Ninth Edition maintains this book's strengths while addressing market changes with new learning objectives, a complete updating, and a fresh new design. The text continues to provide a unique survey of psychology that meets three goals: to demonstrate the unity and diversity of psychology's subject matter, to illuminate the research process and its link to application, and to make the material challenging and thought-provoking yet easy to learn. Weiten accomplishes the successful balance of scientific rigor and a student-friendly approach through the integration of seven unifying themes, an unparalleled didactic art program, real-life examples, and a streamlined set of learning aids that help students see beyond research to big-picture concepts. Major topics typically covered in today's courses are included, such as evolutionary psychology, neuropsychology, biological psychology, positive psychology, applied psychology, careers, and multiculturalism and diversity.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • Key Learning Goals, approximately 30 per chapter, serve as advance organizers that focus students' attention on important ideas and topics to be covered. The consecutively numbered goals are paired with a Review of Key Points at the end of each section to reinforce key takeaway messages.
  • Research includes many topics that have relevance in students' everyday lives, from the Internet's pervasiveness in our society to coverage of the OxyContin epidemic, data on the association between exposure to media violence and aggression, findings on intelligence and IQ tests, and research on the relationship between social support and reduced mortality.
  • Illustrated overviews combine tabular information, photos, and diagrams to provide a coherent synopsis of key ideas in the areas of research methods, sensation and perception, history, learning, development, personality theory, psychopathology, and psychotherapy.
  • The book includes hundreds of visuals, including more than 40 vivid illustrations of the brain, neurons, and other aspects of physiology by award-winning medical illustrator Fred Harwin. The popular Concept Chart booklet helps students visualize the macro-level and drill down to the micro-level.
  • The book balances a critical thinking emphasis with the applied, practical side of psychology. Critical Thinking Application boxes ask students to apply critical thinking skills to chapter-related topics, adding a more formal critical thinking element to the text. Complementing this feature are Personal Application boxes that offer practical information for use in students' day-to-day lives.
  • Integrative themes--empiricism, theoretical diversity, sociohistorical contexts, multifactorial causation, cultural heritage, heredity and environment, and subjectivity of experience--provide connections among the different areas of research in psychology and help students see the ideas behind the facts. Reflecting on the Chapter's Theme sections tie together key themes and content and show links with cross-chapter material.
  • Organized in the same purpose-method-results-discussion format used in journal articles, Featured Studies introduce students to the primary literature. Topics include the effects of sleep deprivation, how women's judgments of men's faces are sensitive to their testosterone level and affinity for children, and benefits of intuition in decision-making.
  • Weiten provides balanced treatment of evolutionary psychology, presenting evolutionary principles in the chapter on the biological bases of behavior to set the stage for parallels with human behavior, which are discussed later.
  • Engage and motivate students outside of class by packaging this text with Aplia™, a text-specific online learning tool designed to improve student performance and save you time. Aplia is an online interactive learning solution that improves comprehension and outcomes by increasing student effort and engagement. Aplia provides automatically graded assignments with detailed, immediate explanations on every question.

What's New

  • A new Paradox feature opens each chapter, providing readers with a one-sentence, thought-provoking statement about psychology that is practical rather than philosophical.
  • New Reality Checks, three to four in each chapter, dispel common misconceptions about psychology. Based on the book "50 Great Myths of Popular Psychology" (Lilienfeld et al., 2010), each Reality Check appears in the margin near a relevant discussion and includes a Misconception and a countering Reality.
  • New chapter-opening vignettes were created for Chapter 3 (biology), Chapter 11 (human development across the life span), Chapter 13 (social behavior) and Chapter 14 (psychological disorders). New topics include the fearless woman known as "SM," Angelina Jolie, Facebook, and unusual celebrity behavior.
  • New Concept Checks that focus on major theorists and researchers in the field appear near the end of each chapter. They challenge students to match major theorists with their key ideas and contributions.
  • New previews of relevant PsykTrek™ content at the end of each chapter give students concrete illustrations of how using PsykTrek can increase their understanding of important concepts and provide enjoyable opportunities for active learning.
  • Social behavior, which was the final chapter in the previous edition, now follows the chapter on personality and precedes the chapter on stress, coping, and health. This edition closes with psychological disorders and treatment of psychological disorders, better grouping common topics together.
  • A new Appendix on Sustainability illuminates how environmental issues and problems are really human behavioral issues, and how psychological insights are critical if humans are to achieve a sustainable world. The essay also offers specific steps students can take to become more environmentally responsible.
  • Each chapter is approximately 5% shorter than the last edition, focusing content on compelling examples, simplifying some explanations, and making room for fresh visuals and a new design.
