About the Author

Thomas M. Heffernan is Senior Lecturer at the University of Northumbria. He has taught psychology for over 12 years, as well as carrying out research in the discipline.


"We are faced with the usual hysteria surrounding the apparent decline of traditional subjects like maths and physics, and the concomitant rise of supposedly 'soft' subjects such as psychology. But Heffernan's guide effectively dispels this unflattering distinction; introducing the prospective psychology undergraduate to the multidimensionality and robust scientific credentials of the contemporary discipline. And for those navigating the ealry stages of their degree course, the book includes thorough and focused sections on empirical report writing, research methodology and examination preparation. Refreshingly, Heffernan emphasises the importance of 'critical analysis' and 'understanding' - values that must be internalised by those who aspire to enter the applied fields that are cogently outlined in the final chapter." - Andy Medley, University Hospital Birmingham, UK, in The Psychologist, January 2006
