In this fresh new offering to the Intro Psychology course, authors John Cacioppo and Laura Freberg portray psychology as being an integrative science in two ways. First, they have written a text that reflects psychology's rightful place as a hub science that draws from and is cited by research in many other fields. Second, this text presents psychology as a unified science that seeks a complete understanding of the human mind, rather than as a loosely organized set of autonomous subspecialties. As psychology moves rapidly toward maturity as an integrative, multidisciplinary field, the introductory course offers an opportunity to teach all of psychology in one place and at one time. This text reflects that evolution--and the authors' excitement about it. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Sandra Hockenbury and new coauthor Susan Nolan’s remarkable textbook is grounded in the belief that all kinds of students can develop a real understanding of psychology and lasting scientific literacy. The authors act on that belief by using relatable personal stories to communicate the concepts of psychological science (and the process of science itself), and by presenting important research in a clear not oversimplified way. Hockenbury and Nolan also take full advantage of online learning, creating activities in LaunchPad that have students thinking about psychology as scientists do. New co-author, Susan Nolan of Seton Hall University was recently designated a Master Teacher by the Society for Teaching Psychology. She regularly gives talks about incorporating scientific literacy into the introductory course and across the psychology curriculum.
