'The book is split into three parts, where parts 2 and 3 particularly stand out as being of practical use to the student wishing to make plans for a career or to understand what the various careers might entail. The authors should be applauded for writing coherent, engaging and readable accounts of areas of psychological specialism. I learned a lot about how other professionals train and about their professional focus, which was both refreshing and enlightening'
'Bayne and Jinks have produced a tour de force of applied psychology in this book. This is an outstanding text and a must buy for undergraduates and masters students thinking about a career in psychology' Professor Cary Cooper Lancaster University
'This book is a major source of stimulating ideas and discussion at the highest level. It is the text for those who want to move beyond the basics of research into high quality professional quality research in all areas of psychology' Dr. Dennis Howitt Loughborough University
Provides a good outline for students
The book is a very convincing and challenging introduction to applied psychology, which I also use for students in sociology and education science. It can be highly relevant, if we offer courses which specifically address applied psychology. However, it also offers a good ground to start how we can get from science to action.
The organisation of the book into three parts makes it simple to utilise.
A useful resource for students providing insightful detail about the reality of practice in a range of applied fields.
I recommended this book to my students and some of them bought it. The book gave my students an excellent understanding of what applied psychology is about, and how it can be used in practical terms in their own work situations. As my students have to enter quiet a bit of research the academic knowledge presented in the book helped them to navigate to other information and to personalise their own individual perspective of items such as Cognitive Psychology, reflective practice and on other psychological perspectives.
This book explores the different aspects of psychology. It should enable students to have a better understanding of how to apply the concept of psychology in their particular field of practice.
Again a useful and inviting text, a good way of linking theory to practice.
This is an excellent introduction to the application of psychology in a variety of professional contexts. As well as covering traditional areas such as clinical, occupational and educational psychology, the book incorporates recent developments in fields such as coaching and positive psychology, and pays due regard to some neglected areas such as counselling and psychotherapy. There are additional useful chapters on careers guidance and the professional academic, serving to further emphasize employability issues.
