Psychology – 1st Canadian Edition is an adaptation by Sally Walters of Charles Stangor and Jennifer Walinga’s textbook, Introduction to Psychology – 1st Canadian Edition. For information about what was changed in this adaptation, refer to the Copyright statement at the bottom of the home page.
This edition has an explicitly Canadian focus. The previous edition has been streamlined and chapters have been added on Cognition, Memory, and Happiness and Stress. The coverage of evolutionary theory and genetics in Chapter 3 has been expanded. Wherever possible, Canadian statistics have been updated. Liberal use has been made of other open access materials, most notably, NOBA and Openstax.
