    Social psychology tries to understand individuals and groups and how they behave in specific situations. ( views) Applied Psychology: Driving Power of Thought by Warren Hilton - Applied Psychology Press, This self-help book is designed to boost personal and professional effectiveness through the use of psychology. The book begins with separate chapters that define the field, examine social psychological theory, review research methods, and consider the design and evaluation of interventions. Subsequent content chapters focus on the application of social psychological theory and knowledge to such areas as counseling, sports, media, health, education.

    The latest thinking in contemporary applied social psychology is reflected in an entirely new section drawing on the Theory of Planned Behavior to explain the nature of social psychological theory. Cutting-edge developments in popular areas such as positive psychology include expanded discussions of optimism and pessimism and positive social. The remaining two-thirds work in applied settings. The majority of these are clinical or counseling psychologists working in a hospital, clinic or private practice. Industrial-organizational and school psychology are the other two largest applied specialties.

    One advantage of this book is that it is relevant to other applied fields outside of psychology (e.g., social work, counseling, etc.). Also, the exercises at the end of chapter sections are helpful. Clarity rating: 5. Comprehensive Applied Sport Psychology, Taylor Books, Routledge Books, at Meripustak.
