Psyched combines a textbook and workbook for students taking an introduction to psychology course at the college level. In the textbook portion, each chapter begins with a short summary of the main topics that will be covered and ends with definitions of all the key terms from the chapter. Unique to this book is the integration of popular culture examples within the text, a focus on application of the materials, and links to “Psyched with Setmire”; a YouTube channel featuring lecture presentation videos created by the author that coordinate with the chapter content. In the workbook section, the PowerPoint lecture slides used in class for each chapter are provided along with space for students to take notes. There are also warm-ups and class participation activities that students will be completing during the course that are included in the workbook for ease of access and reference. Using the two sections of the book, students will be able to gain not only the content knowledge form the textbook portion but also the chance to apply that knowledge with the activities provided in the workbook.

New to the third edition are “Apply It!” practical tips for students interspersed throughout the textbook portion, greater depth in several content areas, updated popular culture examples, and new creative class participation exercises and warm ups to engage students!
