Summary

More than any other introductory textbook, Don and Sandra Hockenbury's Discovering Psychology makes the story of psychology a captivating, highly personal experience for all kinds of students. Without sacrificing science, the authors draw on personal experiences and other real stories to illustrate essential concepts and important research directions in a recognizable, relatable way. This is especially true in the area of cutting-edge neuroscience, which the Hockenburys make extremely teachable and utterly absorbing without oversimplifying the presentation.

Special Package: Each student copy of Discovering Psychology, Sixth Edition is packaged with the book's Study Guide and Worth Publishers' new Three-Dimensional Brain.

DSM 5 Updates
Available for Fall 2014 classes, this update version features new content from Sandra Hockenbury in response to the release of the DSM-5. This new content is integrated into the text without changing pagination or the structure of the chapters. A special DSM 5 Supplement by Sandra Hockenbury is available for Fall 2013 and Spring and Summer 2014 courses.

Author Biography

Sandra E. Hockenbury is a science writer who specializes in psychology. Sandy received her B.A. from Shimer College and her M.A. from the University of Chicago, where she was also a research associate at the Institute of Social and Behavioral Pathology. Prior to co-authoring Psychology and Discovering Psychology, Sandy worked for several years as a psychology editor in both academic and college textbook publishing. Sandy has also taught as an adjunct faculty member at Tulsa Community College.

Sandy’s areas of interest include positive psychology, cross-cultural psychology, and the intersection of Buddhist philosophy, neuroscience, and psychology. She is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), the Association of Psychological Science (APS), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Sandy is a member of the Board of Trustees of Shimer College and recently served as a volunteer with Nomads Clinic, a nonprofit organization that brings medical care to remote areas in the Himalayan regions of Nepal and the Tibetan Plateau.

Don and Sandy’s daughter, Laura, is a college senior and geology major who, like her parents, has wide-ranging interests, including climate change, sustainable development, psychology, and the arts. A classical and improvisational pianist, co-director of her college comedy sketch group, and enthusiastic member of the 2011 Division III Ultimate college women’s championship team, Laura has recently taken up the mandolin.

Don H. Hockenbury is Associate Professor of Psychology at Tulsa Community College, where he has had the privilege of teaching undergraduates for more than 30 years.

He is a recipient of the Tulsa Community College Award for Teaching Excellence. Don’s educational background includes a B.S. in psychology and an M.A. in clinical psychology, both from the University of Tulsa. Before he began his teaching career, he worked in psychiatric facilities and in private practice.
