Environmental Psychology
A Psycho-social Introduction



August 2012 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Covering a fast-expanding application of psychology, Environmental Psychology provides an interdisciplinary approach to the interactions of human psychology and behavior with environmental influences. Accessible to students yet comprehensive for use in instruction, this text engages the reader with a probing look at environmental psychology, from its origins and theoretical roots to current research topics and construct application. A thorough introduction to a field with broad practical appeal, Environmental Psychology cultivates a sound understanding of human reaction to and interactions with increasingly multifaceted environments. For students of applied psychologies, as well as ergonomics, environmental planning, and environmental studies, this clearly written and interesting textbook also discusses issues of special relevance to students in urban studies and public planning.
