O'Connell, April, O'Connell, Vincent


Humanistic and holistic in approach, this text provides the student with a well-balanced introduction to psychological theory, research, and applications to everyday life. In the first two chapters, the readers are introduced to seven multiculturally diverse students and then follow their struggles for personal and interpersonal growth throughout the rest of the book. The tone is warm and entertaining (often humorous), and written in a language beginning psychology students can understand. In addition to being a reader-friendly text, every chapter provides boxes of simulated classroom discussions and actual verbatim responses by real-life students. The readers are then encouraged to engage in self-observation and reflective writing similar to the verbatim student responses. New features include: A separate chapter on communication, incorporating relevant new material Threemore multiculturally diverse students in the Scenario boxes, including a multiracial Hawaiian, a refugee from a war-torn Balkan state, andnow another new American minoritya single Caucasian male Scenario Revisited boxes at the end of every chapter in addition to the opening Scenario box. (Some chapters even have three Scenario boxes.) Increased focus on the transcending aspects of human nature. So much of psychology has focused on the abnormal and darker aspects of human personality. In order to offset these negative aspects, psychologists, educators, theologians, and philosophers the world over are joining together in a movement to explore what is uplifting and even transcending in human personality. Chice and Change is part of that movement.
