Overview

Essential Psychology: A Core Textbook offers both the specialist and non-specialist Psychology student the perfect companion at an affordable price. It represents a fresh alternative to the range of expensive, American-oriented titles on the market that are full of topics you need but also many you don’t need on your course. Written by a UK team of authors, it spans 18 accessibly-sized chapters but concentrates on the six fundamental topic areas that are taught at introductory level in the UK – Conceptual and Historical Issues in Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Biological Psychology Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology & The Psychology of Individual Differences – batching them into sections of 3 chapters each. The textbook is:

  • stylish and presented in full color
  • has an abundance of learning features to make your studies enjoyable and fruitful
  • includes a companion website (www.sagepub.co.uk./banyard) with a host of lecturer and student-focused material to assist both teaching and learning

Meet the Author

Philip Banyard is Reader in Psychology at Nottingham
Trent University.

?Christine Norman? is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Nottingham Trent University.

Belinda is a Reader in Forensic Psychology. She teaches primarily within forensic psychology, with specific focus on sexual crime. She has a strong background in psychometrics and individual differences, and retains her enthusiasm for quantitative research (continuing to teach multivariate statistics in what she hopes is a fun and interactive manner). Her research is leading her to incorporate qualitative research methods as she continues to develop a programme of research in collaboration with HMP Whatton (the largest sex offender prison in Europe) that makes a significant and practical contribution to our understanding of sex offenders and sexual crime. Additional areas of interest (both in terms of teaching and research) include the psychology of fraud, lying and deception.
