Introducing Psychology: Brain, Person, Group v5.1 clearly explains basic psychological concepts by highlighting the interactions between the brain (biological factors), the person (beliefs, desires, and feelings), and the world (social, cultural, and environmental factors). This engaging three-level approach organizes and integrates a variety of topics within and across chapters—and encourages learners to actively apply psychology to their own lives.
