Applied Psychology

Putting theory into practice

Second Edition

Debra Bekerian and Archie Levey

  • Takes the novel approach of presenting each field of psychology as a separate room, offering students an engaging structure which is easy to navigate
  • Uses the real world situation as the determining factor in defining the role of the psychologist, so the student can see the psychologist's input in context
  • A series of scenarios within each chapter provide students with real examples of psychology in practice, showing the relevance of their study to the many guises of psychology as a profession
  • Each chapter gives an overview of the key theoretical concepts which are being applied in the following scenarios, making the link between theory and practice crystal clear
  • End of chapter discussion questions encourage the student to engage in debate about how psychology is used in the real world, and the theory that drives the input of psychologists

New to this Edition:

  • Inclusion of two new 'rooms' - the Nature Room and the Teaching Room
  • Illustrated chapter openers to support and reflect the written content
