For courses in Social Psychology An integrative approach to social psychology.A unique integrated approach to social behavior, Social Psychology, 6/e invites readers to consider the interplay of influences both within and outside the person in social situations. The authors emphasize how social psychology is an important discipline, connecting different areas of psychology (e.g., clinical, organizational, and neuroscience) as well as other behavioral sciences (e.g., anthropology, biology, economics, medicine, and law). Organized around two broad questions - "What purposes does this behavior serve for an individual?" and "Which factors lead an individual to use this behavior to achieve those goals?" - each chapter prompts students to consider personal and situational factors, as well as the interactions among these factors, when analyzing human behavior.
