This Australian Edition of Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour has been developed by expert Australian authors to help students studying in Australia to engage with and apply the concepts and theories of psychology.

Throughout each chapter of this text is work by Australian academics and researchers, Australian statistics, cases, examples; especially in each chapter?s Australian Focus where we explore a uniquely Australian aspect related to that chapter.
In chapter 18, new to this Australian edition, we look closely at Indigenous and Cross-cultural Psychology within an Australian context. Where we aim to encourage active engagement with the topic and emphasise critical reflection and the development of frameworks and strategies to assist in future study and work.

Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour supports student reading and comprehension of material through its text pedagogy:

- Chapter focal questions, chapter outlines
- Test Yourself review questions
- Chapter summary and key terms

This print pedagogy is supported by Connect , our integrated online platform which is built around Introductory Psychology learning objectives, and features:

- Learnsmart , an adaptive questioning diagnostic that helps students create individualised study plans
- PsychInteractive , active learning modules, where students learn the scientific method as they observe data, formulate and test a hypothesis, communicate their findings, and apply their understanding of psychology.
- Interactive tutorials that support concept comprehension
- Auto-gradable exercises, with over 3500 questions to choose from
- Media-rich, integrated eBook

Students develop understandings of the applications of psychology through examples in the text and Applying Psychological Science, which shows how information obtained from research can be applied at both personal and societal levels.
Research Close-up, which presents a research study in the format of a simple journal article; and Levels of Analysis, which shows how psychologists examine the interplay of biological, psychological, and environmental/social factors in order to understand behaviour, all prepare students to evaluate research and science critically. Thinking Critically allows students to practice this critical examination.
