Psychology Focus

Series Editor: Perry Hinton

The Psychology Focus Series, edited by Perry Hinton of Thames Valley University, provides students with a new focus on key topic areas in psychology.

It supports students taking modules in psychology, whether for a psychology degree or a combined programme, and those renewing their qualifications in a related discipline.

Each short book:

  • presents clear, in-depth coverage of a discrete area with many applied examples
  • assumes no prior knowledge of psychology
  • has been written by an experienced teacher
  • has chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary of terms
