Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Psychology: Perspectives and Connections is a comprehensive introduction to psychology designed to guide students to move beyond what may seem obvious and reevaluate the their thoughts and beliefs.  In every chapter the text emphasizes four key goals:
Challenging assumptions: A chapter-opening feature starts students questioning their beliefs about the discipline.
Thinking scientifically:  A framework for testing assumptions builds critical thinking skills, and in-depth analyses of high-interest research studies in every chapter help students apply those skills.
Making science accessible: The text helps students develop scientific literacy.
Applying psychology to everyday life: Innovative features demonstrate how psychological research can directly affect people’s lives.

Enhanced by the extensive and ever-expanding resources in McGraw Hill Connect’s digital platform, Psychology: Perspectives and Connections helps students engage with and synthesize the broad content of the course.
