Psychology in Perspective - Carol Tavris; Carole Wade
ISBN: 9780130283269
Publication Date: 2000-11-06
Carol Tavris and Carole Wade once again set a new standard with this exciting alternative to traditional treatment of psychology. Psychology in Perspective, 3/e, responds to the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Project 2061, which calls upon all scientists to teach for depth of understanding rather than breadth of coverage. The authors have reorganized the traditional material according to the five major perspectives in the field and offer an unbiased presentation of each perspective's strengths, limitations, and misuses. The text emphasizes the importance of understanding all five approaches in order to grasp the "big picture" of human experience. Explains and studies human behavior from the biological, learning, cognitive, sociocultural, and psychodynamic perspectives. For individuals interested in an alternative approach to psychology.

Guide to the Guide

This guide is an attempt to provide resources for an introductory course in psychology at the undergraduate level.  It gets its basis for design from a course syllabus from several years ago.  That course looked at five different perspectives of psychology, and each of those perspectives has a print resource page in this guide.  There is also a page for avoiding plagiarism, a page for using the APA writing style and citations, a page for general psychology references, and also a page with a listing of psychology specific databases.  There is also a page with a Google Scholar search box so you can search straight from the page, and beside it is a graphic of how to use Google more effectively with more precise search tips and keyboard shortcuts as well as other research tips.  The resources are listed on the pages in alphabetical order by title.  The table of contents below will allow you to click a link for a specific page without having to browse the page tabs and headings.
