The book highlights how both these elem...ents contribute to our understanding of the benefits of gardening. Each chapter reviews a different aspect of gardening experience, demonstrating how individual, evolutionary and social psychological theories offer new insights into a very familiar activity. The book will be of great interest to students in environmental psychology as well as members of the horticultural society and those interested in gardening.

              How can you make the most of retirement? How should you plan for retirement? What are the challenges of retirement and how can they be dealt with? The Psychology of Retirement looks at this life stage as a journey that involves challenges, opportunities, setbacks, periods of dise...nchantment and, often, exciting new beginnings. Taking a positive approach, the book explores how retirement provides opportunities to cultivate new friendships, interests and hobbies, consolidate and renegotiate long-held ones, and even re-invent oneself in a post-work environment. It also emphasizes the value of pre-retirement planning, and the importance of establishing new goals and purposes. Retirement can be a period of significant psychological growth and development and The Psychology of Retirement shows how it can herald the beginning of a vibrant and active stage of life.

              The Psychology of Climate Change

              What explains our attitudes towards the environment? Why do so many climate change initiatives fail? How can we do more to prevent humans damaging the environment? The Psychology of Climate Change explores the evidence for our changing environment, and suggests that there are sig...nificant cognitive biases in how we think about, and act on climate change. The authors examine how organisations have attempted to mobilise the public in the fight against climate change, but these initiatives have often failed due to the public's unwillingness to adapt their behaviour. The book also explores why some people deny climate change altogether, and the influence that these climate change deniers can have on global action to mitigate further damage. By analysing our attitudes to the environment, The Psychology of Climate Change argues that we must think differently about climate change to protect our planet, as a matter of great urgency.

How do dogs communicate with humans and each other? The Psychology of Dog Ownership explores the nature of our unique relati...onship with dogs and its effect on our mental and physical welfare. The book uses psychological learning theory to examine dog behaviour and highlights the importance of determining between typical dog behaviour and behaviour disorders that need treatment.

              Western societies today are facing a crisis of trust. Politicians, journalists, police officers, church officials, CEOs: all are distrusted. But what explains this lack of trust? and how is trust developed and maintained? Drawing on a wide range of psychological theories, The Psy...chology of Trust addresses trust issues that are directly relevant to peoples' experiences in their daily lives. It seeks to identify the factors that cause people to trust, the contexts for and consequences of trust, and the crucial role that trust plays in humans and their relationships. It also explores the impact of a lack of trust, and what causes distrust of individuals, groups and organisations. Ken J. Rotenberg examines topics such as deception, trust and health, trust in romantic relationships, trust in the police, trust in politicians, terrorism and trust, trust in the workplace, trust and religious faith, and building trust. The Psychology of Trust offers a fascinating insight into trust issues we all experience, and provides practical guidance regarding our own trust in others.

              What fascinates us about intelligence, and what makes us fear it? How does intelligence impact our daily lives? Why is it something we avoid talking about? Human intelligence is a vital resource, yet the study of it is pervaded by neglect and misconceptions. The Psychology of Int...elligence helps make sense of the contradictory social attitudes and practices in relation to intelligence that we have seen over the decades. Showing how our approach to intelligence impacts our daily lives in educational, occupational, medical, and legal settings, the book asks if it is possible to move beyond the prejudices surrounding intelligence in the past. Challenging popular assumptions, The Psychology of Intelligence encourages us to face intelligence in ourselves and others as an important fact of life that we can all benefit from embracing more openly.
