Book Description

Psychology; 5th Edition (Australian and New Zealand) in PDF enables every introductory psychology student to master concepts through proven pedagogy and meaningful ‘tales from the front’ videos with practicing psychologists. Neuroplasticity content is integrated throughout every chapter.

Available as a full-colour textbook; this ebook enables every psychology student to master concepts and succeed in assessment; and supports lecturers with an extensive and easy-to-use teaching and learning package.

Some features of the latest 5th edition:



    • Additional local research and examples in each chapter



Adapting the textbook to the Australian and Asia–Pacific landscape involved drawing on the considerable body of research emerging from Australia and New Zealand; as well as including statistics relevant to local experience. Presenting research and literature relevant to students’ own countries considerably enhances the quality of the learning experience.



    • Enhanced cross-cultural and indigenous psychology coverage



Cross-cultural and indigenous psychology issues are covered both where relevant throughout the entire textbook; and also in a stand-alone chapter (chapter 19). Such coverage allows for maximum flexibility in teaching cross-cultural and indigenous psychology in an Introductory Psychology course.



    • A proven pedagogical framework: an integrated study package



Several key conceptual features remain from earlier editions that give Psychology: 5th Australian and New Zealand Edition its distinctive ‘signature’.



    • Balanced coverage of multiple perspectives



Earlier editions have endeavored to acquaint students not just with seminal research but with the conceptual frameworks that guide that research across subdisciplines. With this latest Fifth edition; the authors have once again tried to describe the strengths and limitations of the major perspectives; with increased emphasis on cognitive; humanistic; and evolutionary perspectives and on potential integrations across perspectives.

Biology and culture: micro to macro approach

A consistent theme of the textbook; introduced in the first chapter; is that biology and culture form the boundaries of psychology. Understanding people means attending simultaneously to biological processes; psychological experience; and cultural and historical context. The focus on biological and neural underpinnings echoes one of the major trends in contemporary psychological science; as technological developments allow progressively more sophisticated understanding of the neural substrates of psychological experience.



    • Conceptual orientation



The ebook is conceptually oriented. It attempts; within the limits of the author’s objectivity and expertise (considerable limits; no doubt); to give a fair and compelling account of the different perspectives psychologists take in understanding psychological phenomena.



    • Research focus



This etextbook is about psychological science. A student should come out of an Introductory Psychology class not only with a sense of the questions and frameworks for answering them but also with an appreciation for how to obtain psychological knowledge.
