Methodological issues in applied social psychology by Fred Boyd Bryant( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The application of social psychology to various social issues not only has led to the development of better theories and more accurate principles of human behavior, but has also evolved improved research approaches. In this illuminating survey, experts present a wide selection of methodological advances in applied research covering the areas of problem identification and resource planning, meta-analysis of quasi-experiments, structured diary methods, time series designs, structural equations modeling, the control construct design, single-case studies, qualitative activist approaches, thought experiments, research on computer networks, special ethical concerns, and enhanced communication of research results. Drawing on actual case studies, contributors utilize an array of established procedures and innovative techniques to elucidate vital issues in different domains, including health and medicine, community psychology, education, criminal justice, and interpersonal relations. The state-of-the-art coverage in this highly readable volume is valuable for professionals, as a text for advanced research method courses in the fields of psychology, sociology, public affairs and policy, criminal justice, and public health, and in nonmethods courses on applications of social science to substantive social issues
Applications of heuristics and biases to social issues by Linda Heath( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applications of Heuristics and Biases to Social Issues thoroughly examines these social psychological constructs and explores their importance in the areas of health, law, education, and organizations. Adopting a cross-disciplinary approach to the study of various theories, contributions apply heuristics and biases to such key issues as genetic testing, the controversy over supplying clean needles to drug users to prevent the spread of AIDS, medical decisions by both doctors and patients, therapists' perceptions of diagnostic accuracy, judges' sentencing decisions, perceptions of tax audits, workers' perceptions of jobs and leadership, and the views of the public and policymakers on affirmative action. Other chapters describe the development of heuristic reasoning among elementary school children, examine the effect of heuristics on decisions about environmental issues across childhood, and outline a heuristic framework for college-choice decisions
