Exploring Social Psychology

"This is a book I (David) secretly wanted to write. I have long believed that what is wrong with all psychology textbooks (including those I have written) is their overlong chapters. Few can read a 40-page chapter in a single sitting without their eyes glazing and their mind wandering. So why not organize the discipline into digestible chunks-say forty 15-page chapters rather than fifteen 40-page chapters-that a student could read in a sitting, with a sense of completion? Thus, when McGraw-Hill psychology editor Chris Rogers first suggested that I abbreviate and restructure my 15-chapter, 600-page Social Psychology into a series of crisply written 10-page modules, I said "Eureka!" At last a publisher willing to break convention by packaging the material in a form ideally suited to students' attention spans. By presenting concepts and findings in smaller bites, we also hoped not to overload students' capacities to absorb new information.

"We cast social psychology in the intellectual tradition of the liberal arts. By the teaching of great literature, philosophy, and science, liberal arts education seeks to expand our awareness and to liberate us from the confines of the present. By focusing on humanly significant issues, we aim to offer social psychology's big ideas and findings to pre-professional psychology students, and to do so in ways that stimulate all students. And with close-up looks at how the game is played-at the

From his experience as an author and teacher, David Myers has concluded that students digest material more easily when it is presented in smaller chunks. Ask students whether they would prefer a 600-page book to be organized as fifteen 40-page chapters or as forty 15-page chapters and their answers will approach a consensus: students prefer shorter chapters. And research on learning strategies supports this preference: chunked material is more easily digested. Responding to student preference and learning research, Myers has

This book is an in-depth qualitative linguistic study of loneliness disclosures in interviews with undergraduate students in the UK. While much loneliness research has been undertaken in the areas of psychology, social policy and education, such studies have prioritised the social factors behind mental distress without paying explicit attention to the medium in which such distress is communicated and embodied (i.e. language). This monograph supplements this growing body of work by arguing for a stronger focus on the insights
