Summary
    Psychology: A Hands-On Guide and Workbook combines readings and active-learning experiences. It engages students and makes the material personally relevant through the application of psychology to their daily lives.

    The book covers the traditional topics included in introductory psychology courses such as the nervous system, the five senses, consciousness, conditioning, and memory. The topics are presented in a way that engages the students and allows them to test their knowledge through interactive exercises.

    Each chapter opens with key questions that help students focus their learning. The book includes easily understood charts and tables to support the information. All chapters feature a “takeaways” section, which allows students to paraphrase key concepts to support their retention, and designated study tips that help students retain the material.

    Psychology: A Hands-On Guide and Workbook is an easy-to-use study guide and outline for organizing the material in introductory psychology courses. It can be used as a supplement to standard texts or as a stand-alone textbook for professors who want a condensed version of the material.

    Susan Whitbourne, Ph.D., ABPP, is a professor emerita of psychological and brain sciences at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She is a prolific writer in the field, having authored or coauthored over 160 refereed articles and book chapters, 16 books, and a number of blog posts for Psych Today and Huffington Post.
