Based on the bestselling text, Social Psychology, 10th Edition, Exploring Social Psychology, 6th Edition succinctly explores social psychological science and its applications to contemporary issues and everyday life. Thirty-one short modules--each readable in a single sitting--introduce students to important social phenomena and to how scientists discover and explain such phenomena. Throughout, students are challenged to think critically about such issues as: * How does our thinking - both conscious and unconscious - drive our behavior? * What leads people sometimes to hurt and sometimes to help one another? * What kindles social conflict, and how can we transform closed fists into helping hands? Answering these and other questions, Exploring Social Psychology, 6th Edition expands our self-understanding and sensitizes us to the social forces that pull our strings.

Part 5 focuses on social and life issues facing Asian Americans such as racism, academic and career development. The text concludes with an examination of the physical and psychological well-being of Asian Americans and avenues for coping and healing.

Why Myers? David Myers has become the world’s best-selling introductory psychology author by serving the needs of instructors and students so well. Each Myers textbook offers an impeccable combination of up-to-date research, well-crafted pedagogy, and effective media and supplements. Most of all, each Myers text demonstrates why this author’s style works so well for students, with his signature compassionate, companionable voice, and superb judgment about how to communicate the science of psychology and its human impact. Why Modules? This modules-based version of Myers’ best-selling, full-length text, Psychology (breaking down that book’s 16 chapters into 59 short modules) is yet another example of the author’s ability to understand what works in the classroom. It comes from Myers’ experiences with students who strongly prefer textbooks divided into briefer segments instead of lengthier chapters, and with instructors who appreciate the flexibility offered by the modular format. Modular organization presents material in smaller segments. Students can easily read any module in a single sitting. Self-standing modules. Instructors can assign modules in their own preferred order. The modules make no assumptions about what students have previously read. Illustrations and key terms are repeated as needed. This modular organization of short, stand-alone text units enhances teacher flexibility. Instead of assigning the entire Sensation and Perception chapter, instructors can assign the module on vision, the module on hearing, and/or the module on the other senses in whatever order they choose.
