Tailored to the curriculum of the Scottish Qualifications Authority, Higher Psychology: Approaches & Methods aims to develop the ability in readers to understand and explain the main theoretical approaches and research methods in psychology, and to interpret, analyse and critically evaluate, theories, evidence and methods.
It is being used extensively by students of Intermediate, Higher and Advanced Higher psychology in Scotland, and has been described as ‘crucial’ for the teaching of AS/A level psychology in England and Wales. Recently found relevant to psychology in the International Baccalaureate, it is also appreciated by those doing Scotland’s Higher National Psychology Units, or anyone new to psychology at university level in the English-speaking world.
It contains extra features for learning, including structured assessment questions, interactive activities, links to online teaching and learning exercises, as well as end of chapter summaries for revision.
‘Higher Psychology Approaches & Methods’ can be got in most High Street bookshops, or can be ordered directly from the publishers via www.madaboutbooks.com, the Hodder Headline site for readers and booklovers. Alternatively phone Bookpoint on (44) 01235 827720.
