The human mind is both extraordinary and compelling. From the leader who convinced his followers to kill themselves to the man who lost his memory, these famous accounts have provided invaluable insights for scholars and researchers and amazed the public at large. Brought to life by Rolls, each case is contextualized with more typical behaviour, while the latest thinking in each subfield is also discussed.
Revised and updated, this new edition features two new case studies including the 'Jim Twins' by Thomas Bouchard, an amazing case of twins separated at birth and adopted by different parents yet when reunited 30 years later shared so many behavioural characteristics. It also features a new issues and debates chapter.
Classic Case Studies in Psychology is accessibly written and requires no prior knowledge of psychology, just an interest in the human condition. The book will amaze, sometimes disturb, but above all enlighten its readers.
Geoff Rolls has taught psychology for over 26 years and is currently Head of Psychology at Peter Symonds College, Winchester, UK. He is the author of the popular Women Can’t Park, Men Can’t Pack (Chambers, 2009), which investigates gender stereotypes (including driving), and also Taking the Proverbial (Chambers, 2007), which explores the psychological truth behind well-known proverbs and sayings.
