How far would you go to obey orders? Why do many people - even some scientists - believe in miracles? Find out the answers to these questions and much more in this visual guide to applied psychology.
Lying at the intersection of biology, philosophy, and medicine, psychology is at the heart of what makes us human.
Perfect both for students and people new to the topic, How Psychology Works has a unique graphic approach and uses direct, jargon-free language. It explores various approaches that psychologists use to study how people think and behave, such as behaviourism, cognitive psychology, and humanism.
This indispensable guide describes a wide range of mental health conditons, including bipolar disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. It then takes you through treatments, from cognitive behavioural therapy and psychoanalysis to group therapy and art therapy. This book also explores the role of psychology in everyday situations. Discover what makes you, you - the unique blend of nature and nurture that makes up your sense of who you are - and pyschology's role in relationships, sport, work, and education.
How Psychology Works is a fascinating read that will quickly hone your emotional intelligence and give you perceptive insights into both your own and other people's feelings and behaviour.
