A long-respected standard in the psychology of adjustment, Psychology and the Challenges of Life, 11th edition, has been thoroughly updated and contemporized to provide students the ability to reflect on the many ways in which psychology relates to the lives we live and the important roles that psychology can play in helping us adjust to the challenges we face. Authors Jeffrey Nevid and Spencer Rathus explore the many applications of psychological concepts and principles used to meet the challenges of daily life, while encouraging students to apply concepts to themselves through active learning exercises, self-assessment questionnaires, and journaling exercises.   The text’s modular organization goes even further to increase student understanding by breaking down lengthy chapters into individualized study units designed to fit the busy lifestyles of today’s students.
