In the present epoch of global change, movement, interconnection and the intensification of social issues within and across many societies, applied social psychology is more relevant than ever. The SAGE Handbook of Applied Social Psychology offers an overview of the field and the disparate and evolving approaches. Through an international team of contributors, the handbook brings prominent research literature together and organises it around ten key areas: Part 01: Culture, race, indigeneity; Part 02: Gender and Sexuality; Part 03: Politics; Part 04: Health and mental health; Part 05: Work; Part 06: Ageing; Part 07: Communication; Part 08: Education; Part 09: Environment; and Part 10: Criminal Justice, Law, Crime. This handbook is a uniting and invigorating resource for the field of Applied Social Psychology.
