"Thinking Critically About" infographics
This new feature offers a visual tool that engages students in thining critically about key psychological concepts (parenting styles, gender bias, group polarization, therapeutic lifestyle changes, and more).

"Assess Your Strengths" activities
With the significantly revised Assess Your Strengths activities, students apply what they are learning from the text to their own lives and experiences by considering key “strengths.” For each of these activities, the authors start by offering a personalized video introduction, explaining how that strength ties in to the content of the chapter. Next, they ask students to assess themselves on the strength (critical thinking, quality of sleep, self-control, relationship strength, healthy belonging, hope, and more) using scales developed by researchers across psychological science. After showing students their results, the authors offer tips for nurturing that strength in students’ own lives. Finally, students take a quiz to help solidify their learning.
