Psychology: An Australian and New Zealand Perspective is an adaptation of elements of both the third and fourth editions of the Westen and Kowalski US Psychology texts. Its aim is to give undergraduate students in Australia and New Zealand a broad overview of the depth and breadth of Psychology as a discipline, with the theoretical concepts being underpinned by examples particularly appropriate for students studying in our region. This balance helps the text to deliver to students one of the most robust findings in psychology - that memory and understanding are enhanced when target information is associated with vivid and personally relevant material. Both Psychology majors and those who only do 1 or 2 Semesters of study in Psychology will be able to connect with thecontent. The text is also unique in its coverage of intercultural and indigenous psychology within the Australian and New Zealand contexts. Demonstrating adequate coverage of this issue is becoming increasingly necessary for Universities in seeking the appropriate professional accreditation for their degree courses in Psychology. In 2006 Lorelle was awarded a Carrick Citation for excellence in developing nationally recognised teaching practices and resources that inspire first-year students to actively engage in learning processes and develop critical thinking skills.
