Overview

Psychology, 9th edition, by Bernstein et al. continues to strike a balance between classical and contemporary topics with a comprehensive, research-oriented approach. The text takes an active learning approach with the use of hallmark pedagogical features such as Linkages, Focus on Research Methods, and Thinking Critically. Features new to the print program include streamlined content, integration of Positive Psychology throughout the text (by Chris Peterson, University of Michigan), and optional four-color "Neuropsychology" and "Industrial/Organizational Psychology" chapters. Leading-edge technology enhancements to the program include static and interactive eBooks; upgraded Flash-enabled Netlabs, Web tutorials, and animations; interactive Concept Maps; Active Learning and Critical Thinking Booklets; and a new DVD entitled Revealing Psychology.
