Introducing Psychology: Brain, Person, Group is suitable for courses called Introduction to Psychology, Principles of Psychology, Survey of Psychology, or for any basic psychology course that provides an overview of the discipline. The course is generally taught at the undergraduate level at most two- and four-year colleges and universities.
Introducing Psychology: Brain, Person, Group presents psychology using levels of the brain, person, and social world to help students actively apply psychology to their lives. Examining psychological concepts from the levels of the brain (biological factors), the person (beliefs, desires, and feelings), and the world (social, cultural, and environmental factors) helps students organize and integrate topics within and across chapters—and readily see the relevance of psychology to their own lives. This comprehensive introduction to psychology both engages students and provides them with an integrated introduction to the field.
