Summary

In this new text for Psychology of Adjustment courses, John Santrock presents psychology as a research-based science that can be applied successfully to improving personal adjustment. Providing numerous opportunities for self-evaluation and strategies for adjustment, Human Adjustment helps students cope effectively with the challenges they face.

New Features

  • Contemporary research: More than 300 references from 2004 and 2005 ensure that the content is based on the latest psychological research, rather than on personal opinion. Examples of cutting-edge research include recent work on happiness and subjective well-being, the effect of religious faith on health, effects of culture on personality traits, and links between attachment in childhood and relationship patterns in adulthood.
  • Applications: Human Adjustment is filled with real-world anecdotes, relevant examples, and opportunities to engage in self-evaluation; it also offers more than 300 adjustment strategies, including strategies for improving intercultural communication, for achieving happiness and life satisfaction, and for thinking critically about adjustment.
  • Diversity: The text offers a strong emphasis on sociocultural diversity, with coverage of culture, ethnicity, and gender woven seamlessly into discussions of adjustment topics. Examples include the roles of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and gender in health care and stress; prejudice and discrimination, immigration, and ways to improve interethnic relations; and cultural variations in nonverbal communication.
  • Multimedia: The In-Psych student CD-ROM packaged free with each new copy of Human Adjustment provides a dynamic set of interactivities and videos that will expand students' knowledge and understanding of the field. The CD includes short video clips and chapter quizzes with feedback; accompanying each video clip are an overview, follow-up questions, and links to related websites where students can find more information about the topic.
