Description

With a strong emphasis on application–without neglecting research and science–this text focuses on helping students use the findings and knowledge of psychology in their own lives and careers.

As the only introductory psychology text written by authors with extensive business experience, this book seeks the ideal balance between psychology's practical and scientific sides. It highlights psychology's scientific nature while simultaneously emphasizing its practical value–how students can actually use and apply the material they read on the job and outside of the classroom. Psychology: From Science to Practice emphasizes three key goals:

• Make it clear to students how they can actually use the findings and knowledge of psychology in their own lives and careers.

• Present psychology as a science.

• Discuss the major findings of psychology without overwhelming students with too much detail.
