In the present epoch of global change, movement, interconnection and the intensification of social issues within and across many societies, applied social psychology is more relevant than ever. The SAGE Handbook of Applied Social Psychology offers an overview of the field and the disparate and evolving approaches. Through an international team of contributors, the handbook brings prominent research literature together and organises it around ten key areas:
Part 01: Culture, race, indigeneity
Part 02: Gender & Sexuality
Part 03: Politics
Part 04: Health and mental health
Part 05: Work
Part 06: Ageing
Part 07: Communication
Part 08: Education
Part 09: Environment
Part 10: Criminal Justice, Law, & Crime
This handbook is a uniting and invigorating resource for the field of Applied Social Psychology.
This handbook is a gift to researchers, practitioners, students and citizens interested in improving the human condition. Through an artful integration of diverse approaches to specific social issues, the editors and contributors manage to combine basic and applied science with practical recommendations for action. The handbook covers issues of importance for modern society, ranging from culture, race, gender, inequality, politics, health, mental health, work, education, the environment and criminal justice. In short, there is something for everyone interested in using science to improve the well-being of individuals, institutions, and the global community. Based on cutting edge research, contributors distill the most relevant and useful recommendations for social change. I highly recommend this handbook to anyone concerned with the state of the human condition.
An exceptionally useful guide to Applied Social Psychology. Hodgetts and O’Doherty along with an impressive range of contributing authors showcase the latest thinking and research. Together they order the field in ways that stimulate and enrich. Essential reading for all interested in applied social cognition, critical and community psychology.
