What’s new with VCE Psychology Units 1 & 2, 8th edition?


Available in 2017, the revised edition will incorporate changes reflecting the recently published VCAA Psychology Advice for Teachers, particularly to the mental health and research methods chapters. Updates include the integration of the 4P Factor model, advantages and limitations of all theories and research methods, more recent research and data on social media influences on behaviour, and strengthening of links with the Study Design through more explicit referencing.

The revised edition also addresses teacher feedback through the inclusion of the end of chapter revision features contained in VCE Psychology Units 3 and 4 6e, more learning activities and review of learning activity answers in the eGuide, closer links with relevant Units 3 & 4 content, and the reinstatement of some content from previous editions such as ways of combating prejudice.

Beyond changes to the content, a new design gives the text a distinctive and even more engaging look. Specifically, the learning pathway is improved through more prominent headers, there are distinctive colours for key features, and images are larger.

The Psychology VCE Units 3 and 4 6e includes the latest advances in Psychology, written by an experienced and passionate team of authors and subject experts.

Jacaranda’s unique exam preparation tool, studyON, is now included and fully integrated with the text, maximising every student’s opportunity for exam success.
