Abstract

Psychology as a profession in Australia is written primarily for students studying psychology in the third, fourth or postgraduate years, but certain chapters of the book are also relevant for first year students who may be taking psychology as an elective or as a core subject in another discipline. For example Chapters 1–3 and perhaps Chapter 10 might be useful chapters for those students not sure about whether they wish to pursue a career in psychology. These chapters set the scene for thinking about what psychology might be, about science, practice and professionalism, and about psychology and social responsibility. These chapters would allow students in non-psychology courses to have a brief overview of the origins of psychology and its many applications, as well as provide them with an alternate professional discipline to compare with their own.
