A Social Psychology Research Experience is a workbook that offers students a hands-on introduction to how social psychologists develop and test their research questions. Used in conjunction with a comprehensive instructor's manual, this workbook includes skill building and interactive group activities that lead students through hypothesis generation, experimental design, the institutional review process, data analysis, writing, and dissemination of their research findings. Students also learn about and gain experience using diverse data collection methodologies, such as priming procedures, psychophysiological measures, surveys, and behavioral observation. Developed by two experimental social psychologists with several years of combined experience teaching and supervising undergraduate student research, this is a truly unique workbook; it covers the entire research experience in detail, while other comparable books tend to only focus on specific parts of the process, such as experimental design or data analysis. Dr. Jennifer J. Harman received her Ph.D. at the University of Connecticut in Social Psychology with a certificate in quantitative methods in 2005, and is currently an Associate Professor of Applied Social Psychology at Colorado State University. She has developed and taught many undergraduate and graduate psychology courses for both traditional classroom offering and on-line learning environments. Her research specifically examines relationship behaviors that put people at risk for physical and psychological health problems (e.g., sexual risk taking, communication problems), and she directly trains many undergraduate students on the research process in her laboratory.

Lehmiller received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Purdue University in 2008, and is currently a College Fellow in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. Dr. Lehmiller is an accomplished educator and was recently awarded a Certificate of Teaching Excellence from Harvard. He is also a prolific scholar and has published over 25 pieces of scientific writing to date spanning a range of topics, including secret romantic relationships, "friends with benefits," commitment, and sexual orientation. Dr. Lehmiller is frequently interviewed by media outlets such as CNN, The Chicago Tribune, The Huffington Post, and Men's Health for his expertise on sexuality and relationships. He also runs a popular blog entitled The Psychology of Human Sexuality. Learn more about Dr. Lehmiller at lehmiller.socialpsychology.org.
What if the man you've always loved isn't the right one for you?
Rose Atwood has been in love with her best friend for years, and she's tired of keeping her feelings under wraps for fear of getting hurt. Being Tyler's best friend is becoming more difficult with every passing year and every new woman in his life--especially Georgiana Smithson, a snotty, beautiful girl who's in Law School with them.
When Rose, dumped by her long-term boyfriend, moves temporarily into Tyler's apartment, tension spikes. Georgiana wants Rose out of the house. Rose wants Georgiana out of Tyler's life. And Tyler... well, he doesn't really know what he wants.
As an unexpected argument brings Rose and Tyler closer than they've ever been, they must decide if there's more to their relationship than being just friends. And they must do it quickly, as Georgiana is determined to do everything in her power to keep Tyler and Rose apart. After all, all is fair in love and war.
Will Rose make a leap of faith and trust Tyler with her heart?
"Vietnam ... One Soldier's Experience" reveals my deep personal struggles with fear, patriotism, authority, fidelity, racism, life, death, conscience, faith, justice, human tragedy and suffering.Although Vietnam may be the forgotten war, it remains relevant because America is just emerging from two wars, Iraq and Afghanistan. On the horizon are Syria and Iran.The idea for writing "Vietnam ... One Soldier's Experience" was born out of my forty-seven year need to tell my story. Although it is neither a war story filled with great heroic battles nor an historical, chronological narrative; it depicts a very real, personal experience of the fighting and types of operations that we conducted in Vietnam during 1966-1967 and the profound effects it had on my life and the lives of tens of thousands of ordinary young men and women who said "yes" to serving their country. Vietnam was "the silent war". Our enemy did not possess powerful weapons such as Germany had in WWII. The myth of war, as we Americans understand it, did not apply to Vietnam. Jungle or guerrilla warfare is not conventional. Vietnam was "the silent war" because our enemy used stealth, concealment, creative imagination and cunning. They were elusive far beyond what our generals could have imagined. The Viet Cong were invisible on the battlefield; tenacious and courageous in their tunnels. They were heroic in their fervor to defeat their enemy; to seize their country's sovereignty and shape its own destiny. What is it that we can't seem to learn from Vietnam? An administration's lies and deceptions seduced us as we blundered our way into Iraq. Subsequently we miscalculated the determination and resistance from the Taliban and Al Qaeda forces in Afghanistan. Fools rush in where wise men never tread!Are we blind to the ruthless and brutal murder and killing of innocent men, women and children across the globe? Can we not see the horrific slaughter of our own children, our own flesh and blood that we are so willing to sacrifice them to a misguided and misinformed government. Have we as a nation grown immune to the savagery and merciless blood-letting that is war? Has America lost forever the virtues of love, peace and compassion which are the foundation for peaceful dialogue and diplomacy and which define a truly great and enlightened nation?
