Descriptions of many techniques that psychologists and others have developed to help them pursue a shared understanding of why humans think, feel, and behave the way they do. Includes interpretive research designs that emphasize a qualitative approach; introduces designs that emphasize an etic (or theory-specified), more quantitative approach to research as well as designs that focus on theory-testing questions, rely heavily on quantification, and are used to study change in individual units. The volume concludes with coverage of “Neuropsychology” and “Biological Psychology,” in discussions of designs for theory-driven research that derive largely from the more biological end of psychology’s family tree.
