An introductory text appropriate for undergraduate forensic psychology or psychology of law courses in Canadian universities and university-transfer colleges.
Forensic Psychology, 3rd edition is a market-leading Canadian text that provides stimulating and accessible course materials by pioneers in the field. It has coverage of both experimental and clinical topics and presents important ideas, issues, and research in a way that students will understand and enjoy, and in some cases find useful in their future careers. The text deals with topics such as eyewitness testimony, jury decision making, and police procedures, as well as content that is more clinical in nature such as the meaning of NCRMD (Not Criminally Responsible by Reason of Mental Disorder), and psychopathy.
The third edition has been updated to provide a broad overview of this expanding field and reflects recent changes to Canadian legislation. The authors have added a new chapter dedicated solely to the assessment and treatment of young offenders, as well as increasing the coverage throughout on psychopathy, domestic violence, and homicidal offenders.

Research Design in Clinical Psychology, 4/E 4th Edition Alan E. Kazdin Test Bank0 out of 5
In this successful text, Kazdin describes research methods in psychology and provides criteria for conducting and evaluating clinical research.
This text’s emphasis is on clinical psychology, but the issues and methods it discusses are relevant to counseling, school psychology and psychiatry. The various stages of research are discussed, with an emphasis on the special demands that are placed on the investigator. Research Design in Clinical Psychology continues to explain how methodology is an approach toward problem solving, thinking, and acquiring knowledge.
This revised edition includes several new topics, as well as an expansion of core topics from the previous edition, which reflect the evolving nature of methodology and the proliferation of clinical research into many topic areas. Students and clinicians will gain a thorough knowledge of the entire research process from developing the idea, selecting methods, analyzing the results, and preparing the written scientific report.
To ensure that the book conveys practices concretely, many examples are presented both from research and from everyday life. More attention has been given to specific methodological practices intended to address principles and issues when designing a study.
Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society, 8/E 8th Edition Charles F. Levinthal Test Bank0 out of 5
Provides students with a deeper understanding of what impacts drug use.
The eighth edition of Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society examines the impact of drug-taking behavior on our society and our daily lives. The use and abuse of a wide range of licit and illicit drugs are discussed from historical, biological, psychological, and sociological perspectives.
In today’s world, drugs and their use present a social paradox, combining the potential for good and for bad. As a society and as individuals, we can be the beneficiaries of drugs or their victims. This text features a comprehensive review of psychoactive drugs, and is notable for the attention it gives to two aspects of drug-taking behavior that have been underreported in other texts: steroid abuse and inhalant abuse.
Personality: A Systems Approach John D. Mayer Test Bank0 out of 5
A lively new textbook that reflects the renaissance in the field of Personality Psychology by addressing in sequence: Human personality, its parts, organization, and development.
The discipline of personality psychology can be viewed as responsible for explaining how a person’s major psychological subsystems — motives, emotion, cognition, self, and more — work together. Today personality psychology is undergoing a renaissance in which new research and theory is emerging. This textbook helps students keep up with those emerging trends.
Personality: A Systems Approach employs a new organization that integrates the best intellectual traditions within Personality Psychology. Over its four parts, the book examines what personality is, what personality’s major subsystems (e.g., motives, the self) are, how personality’s parts are organized, and how personality develops. Students will finish the course with an understanding of how personality systems work together and how personality develops from birth to the conclusion of life.

Theories of Personality: A Zonal Perspective John M. Berecz Test Bank0 out of 5
ISBN-10: 0205439160 • ISBN-13: 9780205439164
Instead of using a historical, categorical, or research approach to teaching personality, John M. Berecz maps theories and research onto a zonal grid to facilitate comparison and analysis.
What exactly is a “zone?” Berecz uses a unique and logical organizational structure to sort diverse theories of personality into zones of commonality. Each personality theory is located in a particular zone, based on the level of analysis (micro or macro) and whether the theory focuses mostly on the person or the situation. For example, Skinner’s behaviorism (chapter 3) is located in the Situational Zone, while Freud’s psychoanalysis (chapter 6) is found in the Insight Zone.
This zonal perspective facilitates learning and retention by providing a broad context within which students can understand and organize information that might otherwise appear as an overwhelming mass of interesting, but disconnected ideas. Using a zonal perspective allows instructors to “connect the dots” among a broad array of diverse theories and research findings.
