Psychologists use a variety of research methods and tools to learn about behavior and mental processes. The goal of this book is to introduce students to the multimethod approachto research in psychology including observational survey and experimental methods.

Students learn about recent topics such as online dating and Facebook cross cultural observations of helping behavior PTSD in orphaned chimpanzees Medicaid and Medicare health outcomes decision making during Hurricane Katrina clinical research and DSM 5 and much more.
