In this thoroughly revised new edition, with eleven new chapters and substantial updates to all others, Rowan Bayne and Gordon Jinks expertly combine the professional and academic aspects of applied psychology. The contributing authors, all experts in their field, provide authoritative and engaging overviews of their areas of expertise and an important range of perspectives. Applied Psychology: Research, Practice and New Directions, Second Edition is organized into three parts. The first part is a general context for applied psychology including a discussion of questions about evidence based practice.

The innovative third part is a roundtable of expert practitioners commenting on the new directions they would like to see in their areas of applied psychology.
