Stimulate critical thinking with this thematic approach to Psychology by best-selling author Richard Gross, that integrates topics, theories and areas of research.
Themes, Issues and Debates in Psychology is ideal reading for all students of Psychology and is relevant to both the synoptic element of A2 and undergraduate courses. This thematic approach is not usually found in traditional textbooks.
- Aids understanding with a thematic approach that provides a historical and theoretical context for what are usually treated as 'standalone'topics
- Encourages a broader, more integrated approach to essay writing
- Motivates critical thinking to stretch and challenge students in areas such as behaviour, culture, consciousness, parapsychology and religion
Richard Gross holds degrees in Psychology & Philosophy and the Sociology of Education & Mass Communications. Following a career in teaching, the runaway success of his first book, Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour, made it possible for him to switch direction and focus on writing. His other best-selling books include Themes, Issues and Debates in Psychology, Key Studies in Psychology, AQA(A) Psychology for A2 and Psychology for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals. Richard speaks often at student and teacher conferences. In his spare time he is almost as devoted a Spurs fan as he is a husband and father of two daughters.
