Product Description:

Although I never had psychology in high school, at least one introductory psychology class is required at most every college or university. This product would have provided a solid foundation for those classes. Many different areas of psychology are touched upon with a general introduction to psychology, psychological methods, biology and behavior, basic mental processes, motivation, personality, human development, abnormal psychology, and psychotherapy. While there may be some controversial ideas and you may not agree with certain psychological theories, the purpose of this book is just to help students understand psychology as a field today, to see how it is accomplished, and to discover what different psychologists have thought and learned as the field has developed. Each chapter concludes with extension activities and review questions. An answer key and glossary of terms are provided in the back of the book. The material is presented in an interesting and understandable manner with black-and-white illustrations. 268 pages, softcover. ~ Megan

Publisher Description:

Subject areas include sensation and perception, memory, learning, motivation and emotions, personality, psychotherapy, and social, developmental, and abnormal psychology. Other high-interest topics: adolescence, the biological foundations of behavior, and psychology as a factor in selected social problems.

My rising ninth grader wants to study psychology next year. This book looks to be age appropriate, and I hope it will be a helpful tool for this class.

We needed an extra elective class & this book will be perfect. Student is interested in Guidance Counseling & has already taken one other Christian Counseling elective.

I was immediately engaged by the story of the mountain climber- the material seems easy to read and enjoyable. I am going to teach this to my middle schooler so I needed something NOT dry and this seemed like a good option!

I chose this to use in my daughter's homeschooling. From the review I've read, it looks like it will be something good for her in her studies.

Would completion of this course count for a half social studies elective credit?
BethAnne on Jul 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, course completion could be considered a 1/2 credit social studies elective.
The topics listed for this course in the product description make it seem more interesting than the Understanding Psychology course, but Megan's description of the Understanding Psychology course states that it is understandable and interesting. So which one would you recommend?

Psychology: A Christian Perspective Student Book
BEST ANSWER: I chose Understanding Psychology to use. I thought about using A Christian Perspective, but decided to use the other because the student would be going off to college, and would be exposed to topics from a non-Christian perspective. I wanted her to understand the concepts from within a Christian environment even though the topics would not necessarily be presented from that perspective. It was a good book, and I would recommend it.

Wonderful book!
My daughter is 14 and in the 9th grade. She asked to study Psychology. I was not sure where to start, so I went to the Rainbow Resource Center as they are my go to place to find books. Well, they did not disappoint. This book is a great way to introduce students to the field of Psychology. It touches on many aspects of the field. It is well-written and easy to understand. Now my daughter is asking for more books on the subject to further her studies in the subject.

This book seems to be a good overview of the field of psychology but even for a secular book I think it goes too far One of the activities suggests that students "send" thoughts to each other and that if it works they should keep on doing it Also it suggests an ESP "experiment" using cards If the students are successful at guessing a certain number of cards they are cheered on by the comment "May the force be with you all!" Prospective purchasers need to be aware of the types of recommended activities in this book
