This book also offers the Risk/Need/Responsivity (RNR) model of offender assessment and treatment that has guided developments in the subject throughout the world.

Author: Arthur Aron
Publisher: Pearson Higher Ed
ISBN: 9781292036229
Release Date: 2013-08-28
Genre: Social Science

For one-quarter/semester courses that focus on the basics in statistics or combine statistics with research methods. The fifth edition of Statistics for the Behavioral and Social Sciences builds off an already well-established approach - emphasizing the intuitive, deemphasizing the mathematical, and explaining everything in direct, simple language - but also goes beyond these principles to further student understanding. By using definitional formulas to emphasize the concepts of statistics, rather than rote memorization, students work problems in a way that keeps them constantly aware of the underlying logic of what they are doing.

The authors emphasize good research, empirical reasoning, and the continuity of psychological science in the continuing cycle of discovery and understanding. The beginning in the title of this text is intended to have a double meaning. It not only describes the level of the material but also conveys the idea of a journey. For some students, the journey will be completed at the end of the course in which this text is used. For others, the journey will have just begun. In either case, students will have a deeper understanding of the applicability and limits of the scientific method. They will also have learned how to frame questions about the scientific results they read or hear about in the media in ways that will allow them to reach beyond other people's conclusions or assertions and decide for themselves what is true. Additional Learning Goals Upon completing this book, students who are expected to conduct a research study should be able to: Craft a research idea that can be empirically tested Choose methods of data collection and measurement Develop a research proposal Design and implement the research study Approach the research data Test and evaluate hypotheses and explore the results Report the research project in the APA style Note: MySearchLab with eText does not come automatically packaged with this text.
