DESCRIPTION

Approaches to Psychology provides a contemporary, accessible and coherent introduction to the field of psychology, from its origins to the present, and shows the contribution of psychology to understanding human behaviour and experience. The book introduces students to the five core conceptual frameworks (or approaches) to psychology: biological; behaviourist; cognitive; psychodynamic; and humanistic. The methods, theories and assumptions of each approach are explored so that the reader builds an understanding of psychology as it applies to human development, social and abnormal behaviour.
