In a concise and readable 16-chapter format, ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY, 7th Edition, incorporates the most effective features of the sixth edition along with the latest and most important research findings from psychological science. Combining extensive pedagogical support with an emphasis on active learning, the text challenges students to learn by doing -- to actively participate and to think about what they are learning rather than just passively read written information. The integrated pedagogical program helps students master the material by supporting the elements of the PQ4R (Preview, Question, Read, Recite, Review, and Reflect) study system. Douglas Bernstein also shows how topics in psychology are interrelated and guides students in thinking critically -- including organizing select research studies around questions to help readers think objectively about research and results.

Essentials is a streamlined version of the Psychology: Journey of Discovery larger text. Like JOD, Essentials approaches the first course in psychology as a "discovery experience," both in describing the scientific theory and research within the discipline and in describing the introductory students' experience in learning about themselves and others. I use a story-telling approach to describe the science of psychology and reinforce the discovery theme by including "Journey of Discovery Questions" and "Self-Discovery," "Closer Look," and "Exploring Culture & Diversity" boxed inserts throughout the chapters. Each chapter ends with a "Psychological Applications" section which applies specific chapter content to the students' lives.

This new edition of ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY is the medium-sized text in a three-book set authored by Dennis Coon.

His was the first text to embed this well respected learning system within a textbook. It is written with a student-friendly voice and is accompanied by a full complement of print and electronic ancillaries. This edition also features refinement of the pedagogy by expanding the Knowledge Builder sections of every chapter to incorporate a built in study guide for students. This text covers the basic set of topics commonly taught in the introductory course while also including a second Development chapter (Chapter 4), a separate chapter on Gender and Sexuality (Chapter 15), and a concluding chapter on significant Applications (Chapter 17).
