Bernstein’s Psychology takes a balanced approach to the discipline of psychology. The content of the text ranges across the history of psychological theories that aim to understand human behaviour “from cell to society”, and includes multidisciplinary approaches. All content and assessment material is carefully constructed to develop the skills you will require to evaluate human behaviour with a scientific attitude. Linkages across the text help you to see a holistic picture and interrelated fields of psychology. Graduate competencies and psychological literacy ensure that you master the knowledge, skills and professional attributes required to practise psychology competently and safely.
Indigenous and cross-cultural psychology content is covered in two chapters as well as being integrated throughout the text, with a key focus on local research and examples. The text includes a focus on the development of Indigenous psychology and the growing number of Indigenous psychologists currently practising in Australia, via snapshots, linkages, statistics, and examples.
