The third edition of Psychology: The science of mind and behaviour provides an authoritative and highly-regarded introduction to this fascinating topic. Although many approaches to the study of Psychology are presented in this text, the emphasis is on the biopsychosocial model. This serves as an underlying commonality to the examination of each topic, giving direction to students at the beginning of their studies in this well-researched field.
Written by a team of Australian and New Zealand-based academics, each a subject matter expert, this edition contains updated case studies and a brand new feature, In the News, presenting interesting topics in Psychology. Additional local and global cases explore cross-cultural and Indigenous psychology, and probing questions encourage students to think critically about cases and to examine the research methods used in real-life examples.
Aided by its strong pedagogical framework, Psychology makes use of cutting-edge learning technology and interactive resources to provide a comprehensive learning solution.
