Summary

Preface Welcome to the study of General Psychology. This workbook was prepared with you, the student, in mind. It is designed to help you understand and apply theories, concepts, and terms in General Psychology. This complete guide helps students review and reflect on the material presented in Ciccarelli & Meyer Psychology. This workbook can also be used as a general source for the understanding and knowledge of mental process and human behavior. The workbook explores the major psychological approaches to the study of behavior, including their history, theory, methods, and terminology. Its goal is to introduce and reinforce the students' knowledge of the material presented in any psychological text. My objective is to aid you in your understanding of mental process and human behavior. Furthermore, I hope that you find this workbook helpful in the study of psychology. And remember, "Anything that is academically challenging is intellectually rewarding." Roderick Q. Neal, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Psychology and Sociology Patrick Henry Community College
