Applied Psychology
Research, Training and Practice

Second Edition

February 2013 | 368 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

In this thoroughly revised new edition, with eleven new chapters and substantial updates to all others, Rowan Bayne and Gordon Jinks expertly combine the professional and academic aspects of applied psychology. The contributing authors, all experts in their field, provide authoritative and engaging overviews of their areas of expertise and an important range of perspectives.

The book is organized into three parts. The first part is a general context for applied psychology including a discussion of questions about evidence based practice. The second part discusses practice and training in a plethora of areas of applied psychology, including all of the traditional routes (for e.g. clinical, health and educational psychology) eight 'relative newcomers' to the field (for e.g. sport and forensic) and four areas not always regarded as applied psychology: counseling, coaching, careers guidance and lecturing. The latter group are examples of disciplines which are intrinsically psychological but do not require a psychology degree for a career in them, such as nursing, occupational therapy, social work, HR and management. The innovative third part is a roundtable of expert practitioners commenting on the new directions they would like to see in their areas of applied psychology.

Applied Psychology: Research, Practice and New Directions, Second Edition will be essential for all students considering a career in an applied field, either those studying applied psychology at the undergraduate or graduate level.

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.

I will include this book as a strongly recommended title for a 1st year core module called Doing Psychology.
