Description


Why do we think, feel, and act the way we do? A professor and expert consultant on psychological health ponders these questions and more in this thought-provoking, illustrated guide.

Psychology is one of the most popular undergraduate majors. It provides an orienting point for many professional careers, including international relations, public health, social work, clinical counseling, brain research, organizational behavior, business, and advertising. This book not only provides an introduction to this vast field but also tells you how to survive and thrive in the psychology curriculum. Lessons include: 

• the essential organization and workings of the brain 
• why statistics and the scientific method are as critical to the psychologist as humanistic skills 
• how to conduct research, structure survey questions, organize data, and present a research paper 
• how a therapist and patient form an alliance 
• why forgetting makes the mind more efficient 
• why shame is destructive while guilt is productive 

Written by an experienced professor, author, and expert consultant on mental health and happiness, 101 Things I Learned® in Psychology School is for students as well as beginning clinicians, social and public health workers, and others interested in understanding why we think, feel, and act as we do.
