Topics in Applied Psychology offers a range of accessible, integrated texts ideal for courses in applied psychology. The books are written by leading figures in their field and provide a comprehensive academic and professional insight into each topic. They incorporate a range of features to bring psychology to life including case histories, research methods, ethical debate and learner activities. Each chapter opens with learning objectives to consolidate key points. A reading list and sample essay questions at the end of chapters enable further independent study. The series also offers an appreciation of multiple perspectives, examines the relationship between psychology and other cognate disciplines and discusses recent developments in each field. Topics in Applied Psychology will provide you with the tools you need to engage with, enjoy and understand your applied psychology discipline, ultimately ensuring confidence and success in exams as well as a comprehensive grounding in the profession. Educational Psychology explores the role of the educational psychologist, firstly by examining cognitive development, cognitive psychology and individual differences and secondly through the analysis of social development and social psychology. Controversies and dilemmas in research and professional practice are discussed throughout the book. An initial chapter focuses on the development, contemporary nature and context of educational psychology as a profession, outlining especially the requirements for and the nature of professional training. Current debates and challenges are introduced within a diverse range of topics in cognition, learning and instruction, such as, intelligence, language development, dyslexia, maths anxiety, instructional psychology and inclusion. Similarly, topics covering social, emotional and behavioural issues in school - behaviour management and attributions, bullying, autism, school phobia, pupil identity and school ethos - are explored in terms of their roots in psychology theory and research and their high profile within public policy and decision making. The integrated and interactive approach, combined with the comprehensive coverage, make this book the ideal companion for courses in applied educational psychology. Other books in the series include: Clinical Psychology, Criminal Psychology, Health Psychology, Organizational and Work Psychology and Sport and Exercise Psychology.
