Author Biography

 

CAROLE WADE earned her Ph.D. in cognitive psychology at Stanford University. At the University of New Mexico she taught courses in psycholinguistics and developed the first course there on the psychology of gender. She was professor of psychology for ten years at San Diego Mesa College, then taught at College of Marin and Dominican University of California. In addition to this text, she and Carol Tavris have written Invitation to Psychol­ogy; Psychology in Perspective; and The Longest War: Sex Differences in Perspective. Dr. Wade has long sought to make psychology accessible to students and the general public, focusing on the promotion of critical-thinking skills. She chaired the APA Board of Educational Affairs’s Task Force on Diversity Issues at the Precollege and Undergradu­ate Levels of Education in Psychology; presented a G. Stanley Hall lecture at the APA convention; and served on the steering committee for the National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology. She is a Fellow of two divisions of the American Psychological Association and a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science.

CAROL TAVRIS earned her Ph.D. in social psychology at the University of Michigan. In addition to her other books with Carole Wade, she is coauthor, with Elliot Aronson, of Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me), and author of The Mismeasure of Woman and Anger: The Misunderstood Emotion. She has written on psychological topics for a wide variety of magazines, journals, edited books, and newspapers; some of her essays have been collected in Psychobabble and Biobunk: Using Psychological Science to Think Critically About Popular Psychology. Dr. Tavris lectures widely on topics involving science vs. pseudoscience in psychology and many other subjects of contemporary interest. She has taught in the psychology department at UCLA and at the Human Relations Center of the New School for Social Research in New York. She is a Fellow of three divisions of the American Psychological Associa­tion, a charter Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science, and a member of the editorial board of the APS journal Psychological Science in the Public Interest.

MARYANNE GARRY earned her PhD at the University of Connecticut and did postdoctoral training at the University of Washington before moving to Victoria University of Wellington in 1996. She is best known for her research on the causes and consequences of false memories, including “imagination inflation” and its dangers as a therapeutic technique, the effects of inert substances such as fake alcohol on susceptibility to misleading infor­mation, and the power of photographs to rewrite our childhood stories and bias our decisions. In her efforts to apply psychological science to the law, she has worked with the New Zealand Law Commission and police, served as a Director of the Innocence Project New Zealand, and acted as an expert witness in criminal and civil trials worldwide on the (un)reliability of human memory. She is a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science and served as President of the Society for Applied Research in Memory and Cognition. Dr. Garry has received her university’s Merit Awards for Excellence in Research and for Excellence in Teaching.
