Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Are there different kinds of psychologists doing different kinds of jobs or do applied psychologists share a common set of skills to be deployed in different contexts? The fully revised and updated second edition of this highly successful book takes the latter view. It brings a fresh perspective by suggesting that applied psychologists have many similar skills that can be used in different ways in different circumstances. The editors identify seven roles used by most applied psychologists, embracing the psychologist as counsellor colleague, expert, tool-maker, detached investigator, theoretician and agent for change. In this book fifteen leading applied psychologists describe several aspects of their work in order to emphasise these different roles.

Although the content of this book is very varied - covering work-based counselling, cancer treatment, police psychology, text design, driving behaviour, sports psychology, market research, fire-fighter stress, autism, bullying, and work with refugees - the theme is simple: applied psychologists have many similar skills in the roles they play. Its clear and accessible style is enhanced by discussion questions and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter. The text also contains a useful and highly practical guide to pursuing career opportunities and where to find information on relevant courses.
