This breadth of professional and student audiences is reflected in the text, with major sections examining established areas of applied psychology combined with an acknowledgement of the ever developing new areas of study such as health psychology, psychology and law, and economic psychology.Elements of Applied Psychology also gives an insight into the role of the psychologist working in each of these new areas, offering undergraduates an indication of the work which will be on offer to them and of the role which they will be expected to fulfill.Undergraduate psychology courses have expanded rapidly over recent years. Simultaneously, the number of professional groups who incorporate elements of applied psychology in their work is growing all the time. Elements of Applied Psychology is the first text to investigate the pressures created by this increased interest, offering some insight into the factors which have influenced its pattern and direction.
