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, Second Edition, demystifies the link between the study of psychology and psychology in the real world.
The book is structured as a series of “rooms”, each examining a field in which psychology has a significant impact. Each room contains an overview of the key psychological concepts applicable to each situation and provides a number of case studies detailing the psychologist’s input and its effects. The rooms include: The Crime Room, which focuses on forensic psychology; The Work Room, which looks at occupational psychology; The Teaching Room, which explores educational psychology; and more.
Each chapter concludes with thought-provoking discussion questions that encourage students to engage in lively debates.
Now in its second edition, the text incorporates new illustrated chapter openers that help to support and reflect the written content. It also includes two brand-new chapters-Chapter 10: The Teaching Room and Chapter 11: The Nature Room.
An invaluable resource for all students of psychology, Applied Psychology: Putting Theory into Practice is ideal for undergraduate courses in applied psychology.

The Creativity Challenge: How We Can Recapture American Innovation by KH Kim

American creativity has steadily declined since 1990. That disturbing trend recently came to light through the work of leading educational psychologist KH Kim, a recognized expert in creativity assessment. In this insightful and inspiring book, Kim discovers the causes of the decrease in creativity and proposes methods of recapturing American creativity in education, in industry, and throughout every sector of society.
Through the life stories of innovators, Kim debunks the assumption that creative people must be born with innate talents. She shows how parents, educational methods, and cultures shaped innovators’ creative expression. As her research clearly indicates, cultural climates and attitudes (including over-reliance on standardized testing) often work against innovation unless creativity is deliberately grown and developed.
Culminating over twenty years of extensive research, Kim has devised original models to identify creativity in people and organizations and help it to blossom. Gardening metaphors illustrate simple but powerful steps to transform creative potential into innovation. She emphasizes practical steps to cultivate creative climates (environment) in schools, in homes, and at work; nurture creative attitudes (personality) toward learning, work, and life; and apply creative thinking skills. Kim’s models for creativity are complemented with evidence-based methods to learn and practice creative skills in everyday life.

Development Through Life: A Psychosocial Approach, 13th Edition by Barbara M. Newman, Philip R. Newman

English | April 12th, 2017 | ISBN: 1337098140 | 805 pages | True PDF | 20.09 MB

Newman and Newman use a life-stage approach to present development across the life span, drawing on the psychosocial theory of Erik Erikson to provide a conceptual framework for the text.
The authors address physical, intellectual, social, and emotional growth in 11 life stages, from the prenatal period through elderhood, focusing on the idea that development results from the interdependence of these areas at every stage, and placing special emphasis on how optimal development may be fostered throughout life.
Updated with new research findings throughout, DEVELOPMENT THROUGH LIFE: A PSYCHOSOCIAL APPROACH, 13th Edition, provides a balanced view of normative patterns of development and diverse pathways, considering individual, family, cultural and societal factors that contribute to the diversity of life stories.
