Overview

A brief 14 chapter version of the best-selling Understanding Psychology 6/e , Essentials 5/e , retains an emphasis on critical thinking and practical applications. The mission of this extensively revised new edition is to foster student empowerment by giving students the tools they need to master the content of psychology, to think critically about student phenomenon, and to build an appreciation for how psychology can increase their understanding of the world around them. A key aspect of the revision is the incorporation of Robert Feldman's P.O.W.E.R. Learning System into the book and ancillary package. Based on empirical research carried out by learning researchers, the P.O.W.E.R. framework is a systematic approach to learning and studying based on five key steps (Prepare, Organize, Work, Evaluate, and Rethink) that aids the acquisition and retention of new material.
