Description

For many students, the lecture hall or seminar room may seem vastly removed from the reality of everyday life. "Applied Psychology: Putting Theory into Practice" demystifies the link between the study of psychology, and psychology in the real world, illustrating how the application of psychology can be of benefit in many everyday settings. The book is structured as a series of themed 'rooms', which the reader is encouraged to explore, with each room examining a real world situation in which the psychologist has an important impact. These include the Work Room, the War Room, and the Sport Room. Each room contains an overview of the key psychological concepts which are applied in each situation, before leading the reader through a number of scenarios - case studies which present the concepts in an applied context, and show how the psychologist's expertise is drawn upon, and what effect their input can have. "Applied Psychology: Putting Theory into Practice" is an invaluable resource for all students of psychology, showing just how psychology extends beyond the lecture hall to have a vital impact on our everyday lives.
