Bringle, Robert G., Ed.; Duffy, Donna K., Ed.
This volume is part of a series of 18 monographs on service learning and the academic disciplines. The essays in this volume focus on the use of service learning as an approach to teaching and learning in psychology. Following the introduction, "Collaborating with the Community: Psychology and Service-Learning," by Donna K. Duffy and Robert G. Bringle, six essays in Part 1 address, "Theoretical and Empirical Contributions of Psychology to Service-Learning"; they include: "An Overview of Current Psychological Theory and Research on Altruism and Prosocial Behavior" (Martha A. Kitzrow); "Service-Learning and Psychology: Lessons from the Psychology of Volunteers' Motivations" (E. Gil Clary, Mark Snyder, and Arthur Stukas); "Attributions about Misery: A Social Psychological Analysis" (Robert G. Bringle and Pamela M. Velo); "Developmental Psychology and Service-Learning: A Theoretical Framework" (Jay W. Brandenberger); "Service-Learning and the Development of Expert Citizens: Service-Learning and Cognitive Science" (Janet Eyler, Susan Root, and Dwight E. Giles, Jr.); and "The Helping Alliance and Service-Learning" (Jeremy Leeds). Essays in Part 2, "Integration of Service in Psychology Courses," demonstrate how service-learning can effectively be integrated into a variety of psychology courses to enhance the breadth and depth of student learning; they include: "Professor McKenna Teaches Introductory Psychology" (Donna K. Duffy and Robert G. Bringle); "Strategies for Service-Learning: Internalization and Empowerment" (Carol M. Werner); "Service-Learning: From Process to Impact" (Randall E. Osborne, Kenneth Weadick, and James Penticuff); "Human Relations: A Service-Learning Approach" (David B.

Elias and Gregg Gambone); "Service-Learning through Action-Research Partnerships" (Georgia Nigro and Stanton Wortham); "Service-Learning and Cross-Cultural Psychology" (Iva GreyWolf); "Reflections on an Established Service-Learning Program: The Developmental Disabilities Immersion Program at UCLA" (Arvan L. Fluharty and Parvin Kassaie); and "Applying Service-Learning to the Problem of Prejudice: A Psychology and Theater Course" (Stevenson W. Carlebach and Jefferson A. Singer).
