Editorial Reviews


'This 2nd edition by Buunk and Van Vugt is a major contribution to understanding the role of Applied Social Psychology's relevance in dealing with societal problems. It is coherently written and inspiring to students clearly demonstrating the application of psychological theories and knowledge to a variety of everyday problems. For Practitioners the PATH model is a must have "tool" in their armoury, it reflects competency in the field, ensuring a structured approach to a theoretical and empirically-based intervention plan. Highly recommended.' (Dr Carmen-Maria Fyfe)

Recognising the need for practical examples and illustration to convey the step-by-step approach, each chapter is enhanced with a number of interesting features. Interviews with prominent applied social psychologists, such as Gerjo Kok, will provide a welcome respite to students who may struggle with the sometimes dense and detailed description of the phases. Case studies are used to illustrate practical examples of each phase in action. There are also engaging practical activities, which an instructor could adapt for use in the classroom. (Emma L. Davies)
