This lucid study provides broad, easy-to-follow coverage of applications of social psychology to societal and individual problems. Focusing on applications that have been rigorously evaluated, Weyant considers not only direct interventions by social psychologists but also the use of psychology's principles and findings in a number of other disciplines. He has organized the text around broad headings such as "Health" and "Law" and explores applications to a wide variety of problems under these headings, including sexual dysfunctions, cigarette smoking, adolescent alcohol and drug abuse, coping with stress, litter, personal motivation, violence on television, jury selection and expert testimony. The author provides clear explanations of the underlying theory and principles, and a detailed glossary defining many social psychological theories and techniques.
