"Written in a clear and accessible style, the book should appeal to psychology students who want to get an idea of what it is like to work in applied psychology and the skills need to do this. This is especially the case as the book contains highly practical guide to pursuing career opportunities and where to find information on relevant courses." Tom Merrill, Psychology Student, University of Leeds, UK Review of the first edition: "... a nice combination of theory and practice which should be of interest to two main audiences - psychology students trying to get some ideas about their choice of career, and practising psychologists who might like to dip into the book from time to time to broaden their horizons." R. J. Ashton - School Psychology International * What do psychologists do? * What skills do psychologists have? * What contributions can they make to solving people's problems? Are there different kinds of psychologists doing different kinds of jobs or do applied psychologists share a common set of skills to be deployed in different contexts? The fully revised and updated second edition of this highly successful book takes the latter view. It brings a fresh perspective by suggesting that applied psychologists have many similar skills that can be used in different ways in different circumstances. The editors identify seven roles used by most applied psychologists, embracing the psychologist as counsellor, colleague, expert, tool-maker, detached investigator, theoretician and agent for change. In this book fifteen leading applied psychologists describe several aspects of their work in order to emphasise these different roles. Although the content of this book is very varied - covering work-based counselling, cancer treatment, police psychology, text design, driving behaviour, sports psychology, market research, fire-fighter stress, autism, bullying, and work with refugees - the theme is simple: applied psychologists have many similar skills in the roles they play. Students of psychology everywhere will find this book to be an essential point of reference on applied psychology. Its clear and accessible style is enhanced by discussion questions and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter. The text also contains a useful and highly practical guide to pursuing career opportunities and where to find information on relevant courses.

For a significant portion of psychology students, their reason for choosing an undergraduate degree in psychology is their interest in applied psychology and a desire to use psychological knowledge to help solve personal and social problems. With this in mind, this textbook has been designed to satisfy these needs for applied psychology teaching at all undergraduate levels. Applied Psychology is designed to introduce students to the main areas of applied psychology (Clinical Psychology, Health Psychology, Educational Psychology, Occupational Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Sports & Exercise Psychology, Counselling Psychology and Teaching Psychology) from UK, European and international perspectives. It also introduces the core psychological knowledge that underpins these applied and professional areas. As a result, students learn core knowledge from the five main areas of psychology, as well as acquiring a thorough grounding in how this knowledge is applied, and the professional issues associated with that application. Highlights include a broad range of teaching and learning features designed to help the student learn and the teacher teach. These include: Focus Points, Colour Illustrations, Activity Boxes, Research Methods, Case Histories, Self-Test and Essay Questions, Learning Outcomes and Section Summaries, a Glossary as well as Links to Journal Articles and Further Reading. The chapters on Counselling Psychology and Teaching Psychology are available online via the Student Companion Site at: http://tinyurl.com/c3ztvtj The text is written to be accessible to Level 1 Introductory Psychology students, and also to provide the core knowledge and professional information that students at Levels 2 and 3 would require.

Harry Levi Hollingworth was one of the pioneers in the field known today as industrial-organizational psychology. He was the author of more than twenty books and one hundred scientific and theoretical articles. His honors were many. In 1940, Hollingworth took stock of his life in an autobiography that focused on his origins in rural Nebraska and his career as a psychologist at Columbia University. For the first time, this autobiography is now available. This book provides an intimate account of the life and career of a very successful applied researcher who claims that the applied problems to which he devoted virtually his entire life were never of interest to him and that he did such work only for the money. The paradox of this claim offers considerable insight into the prejudices faced by applied scientists and how Hollingworth tried to separate himself from his own accomplishments.

Originally published in 1994, Elements of Applied Psychology provided an introductory survey of the major aspects of applied psychology at the time for students of psychology as a main or ancillary subject. It was the first text to investigate the pressures created by this increased interest in applied psychology, offering insight into the factors which had influenced its patterns and direction. The book comprises 18 chapters, covering both the well-established fields of professional psychology, such as educational, clinical/counselling and occupational/organisational psychology, and areas of developing application at the time, including applied cognitive psychology, economic and health psychology, and psychology and law. The text will still be of value to students considering possible career areas in psychology, students on psychology courses pondering choice of specialism and those students taking psychology as a subsidiary subject in one of the areas covered. It is also consistent with the increasing link between the academic community and practitioners. It will serve to increase the understanding and exchange.

Using psychology to develop spaces that enrich human experience Place design matters. Everyone perceives the world around them in a slightly different way, but there are fundamental laws that describe how people experience their physical environments. Place science principles can be applied in homes, schools, stores, restaurants, workplaces, healthcare facilities, and the other spaces people inhabit. This guide to person-centered place design shows architects, landscape architects, interior designers, and other interested individuals how to develop spaces that enrich human experience using concepts derived from rigorous qualitative and quantitative research. In Place Advantage: Applied Psychology for Interior Architecture, applied environmental psychologist Sally Augustin offers design practitioners accessible environmental psychological insights into how elements of the physical environment influence human attitudes and behaviors. She introduces the general principles of place science and shows how factors such as colors, scents, textures, and the spatial composition of a room, as well as personality and cultural identity, impact the experience of a place. These principles are applied to multiple building types, including residences, workplaces, healthcare facilities, schools, and retail spaces. Building a bridge between research and design practice, Place Advantage gives people designing and using spaces the evidence-based information and psychological insight to create environments that encourage people to work effectively, learn better, get healthy, and enjoy life.

The first volume of its kind, this provocative book evaluates the construct of cultural competence from multiple perspectives. At the intersection of diverse disciplines and domains, contributors argue for greater clarity in understanding the cultural competence construct, a deeper level of analysis as to its multifaceted components, and call for concrete practical objectives and science-based means of measurement. Serious, nuanced discussion addresses challenges, strengths, and limitations of current cultural competence practice in terms of sociocultural concepts (e.g., race, ethnicity) and practical concepts (e.g., sensitivity in the therapeutic relationship, treatment efficacy). In addition, contributors identify future directions for research, training, and practice with the potential to spur the further evolution of this clinically important construct. This timely book: Critiques the cultural competence construct and its evaluation as it is currently disseminated within applied psychology. Compares and contrasts how cultural competence is defined within clinical, school, and counseling psychology. Analyzes difficulties and challenges in understanding the cultural competence construct as evaluated through the lens of closely related fields outside of applied psychology. Spotlights complexities in cultural competence issues pertaining to specific populations. Sets out implications for education and training, offering a detailed outline for an ideal college course in cultural competence With this level of reasoning and rigor, Cultural Competence in Applied Psychology is sure to stimulate long-overdue dialogue and debate among professionals across a wide variety of fields, such as clinical psychology, social work, child and social psychology, psychotherapy, school psychology, and counseling.
