More About This Textbook


Psychology Matters. Robert Feldman’s Psychology and Your Life is an engaging new introductory psychology text that uses experiential exercises and activities, career-oriented text examples, and features designed to directly correlate psychology concepts to the professional and personal lives of readers. Throughout the text and supplements, Psychology and Your Life reinforces why a basic understanding of psychology is relevant to today’s students.

This text also provides instructors with a fully-integrated supplements package to help instructors objectively gauge their students’ mastery of psychology’s key principles and concepts and to create dynamic class experiences—whether in the classroom or online. All ancillary materials are organized by the measurable learning outcomes of each module within the text—there is no more wondering whether the text in use will meet the accreditation guidelines for schools!

Emphasizing practical application, Psychology and Your Life offers examples and perspectives from the healthcare industry (including Allied Health), technology, criminal justice, legal, and business, among others to prepare students to readily prepare and apply psychology throughout their lives and careers.
