About this book

This book uses psychological theories and learning processes, such as Problem Based Learning (PBL), to provide a new approach for teaching psychology at an undergraduate level and prevent diminishing motivation. It creates a detailed example of a psychology degree using the PBL method and suggests how a week of the course could be planned.

Reviews

“Papageorgiou et al. suggest that psychology programs develop curriculums that model the way medical training programs teach their students. … Psychology for Psychologists is a text that would be most appropriate for college educators in psychology and related disciplines, such as education.” (Ngoc H. Bui, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (2), January, 2016)
