Extensively developed based on exhaustive reviewer feedback, Santrock/Mitterer Psychology, First Canadian Edition is a highly readable, practical and research-oriented introduction to the discipline. Adapted from the U.S. Sixth Edition, Santrock/Mitterer presents psychology within a Canadian context by using examples, statistics and cultural references that students can relate to. The vital research that shapes psychology is maintained in this edition. No other introductory text provides a better balance of research vs. pedagogy, content vs. applications, depth vs. breadth, and theoretical vs. practical information. All of this is presented in clear, understandable prose and in a highly visual design that is pedagogically sound and striking without being distracting.
