Heart & Mind: The Practice of Cardiac Psychology
Written to help readers understand and develop expertise in both teaching and learning, Educational Psychology focuses on the art and science necessary to become an expert teacher.<br>Renowned scholars, Sternberg and Williams help readers capitalize on their strengths by integrating questions into the text that encourage analytical, creative, and practical thinking. This framework, based on SternbergвЂ™s triarchic theory of human intelligence, helps ensure that readers think deeply about what they are learning, rather than merely processing information at a superficial level.
The Psychology of Prejudice and Discrimination
This is the first comprehensive textbook on prejudice with a strong psychological research base. Whitley and Kite cover a broad range of topics--from race and ethnicity to gender, sexual orientation, and ageism. By integrating theory and research with students' own experiences, the authors increase students' awareness of influences that shape prejudices. As students evaluate research results and their personal, subjective beliefs, they develop an appreciation of scientific evidence regarding stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination.
Advanced Social Psychology - The State of the Science
Social psychology is a flourishing discipline. It explores the most essential questions of the human psyche (e.g., Why do people help or harm others? How do influence professionals get us to do what they want, and how can we inoculate ourselves against their sometimes-insidious persuasion tactics? Why do social relationships exert such powerful effects on people's physical health?), and it does so with clever, ingenuitive research methods.
This edited volume is a textbook for advanced social psychology courses. Its primary target audience is first-year graduate students (MA or PhD) in social psychlogy, although it is also appropriate for upper-level undergraduate courses in social psychology and for doctoral students in disciplines connecting to social psychology (e.g., marketing, organizational behavior). The authors of the chapters are world-renowned leaders on their topic, and they have written these chapters to be engaging and accessible to students who are just learning the discipline.

Essentials of Abnormal Psychology
In this briefer version of Durand and Barlow's widely taught text, the authors explain abnormal psychology through their standard-setting integrative approach--the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying the subject. Through this integrative approach, students learn that psychological disorders are rarely caused by a single influence, but rooted in the interaction among multiple factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogy, video clips of real clients (located on the accompanying Abnormal Psychology Live 2.5 CD-ROM), and real case profiles--95 percent from the authors' own case files--provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book. In addition, these features ensure that readers never lose sight of the fact that real people are beyond the DSM-IV-TR criteria, the theories, and the research.

The New Psychology of Leadership - Identity Influence and Power
According to John Adair, the most important word in the leader's vocabulary is "we" and the least important word is "I". But if this is true, it raises one important question: Why do psychological analyses of leadership always focus on the leader as an individual — as the great "I"?
One answer is that theorists and practitioners have never properly understood the psychology of "we-ness". This book fills this gap by presenting a new psychology of leadership that is the result of two decades of research inspired by social identity and self-categorization theories. The book argues that to succeed, leaders need to create, champion, and embed a group identity in order to cultivate an understanding of 'us' of which they themselves are representative. It also shows how, by doing this, they can make a material difference to the groups, organizations, and societies that they lead.
Far and away the bestselling brief introduction to psychology, David Myers' Exploring Psychology doesn't just present the story of the psychology. It involves students deeply in that story, as they learning to think critically about psychology’s core ideas, breakthrough research findings, and wide-ranging applications to their lives and the world around them.
