The Integration of Psychological Principles in Policy Development

Synopsis

The thrust of this book is to educate policymakers, academics, political scientists, and others as to the beneficial use of psychological principles within a multidisciplinary framework to aid in the development of more productive policy. Contributors to this volume offer an integrative, collaborative, synergistic approach to effecting positive change. The book's goal is threefold: to offer a varied collection of solutions and models of applications of psychological principles; to collect a diverse group of experts (academics, theorists, and practitioners) whose expertise spans some of the top managed care firms, institutions of higher learning, national consultants, schools, and health care facilities; and to integrate this collection of "pragmatic theorists" into one volume with a general, but common focus - improving society.
