With reader-friendly guidance, UNDERSTANDING SEXUALITY RESEARCH uses realistic, hypothetical cases to promote students' critical thinking. The first five chapters present salient issues to consider when evaluating research on human sexuality. The next ten application chapters correspond well with the primary chapters presented in most sexuality texts, making it easy for instructors to integrate the book into the course throughout the semester. Students learn to effectively apply critical thinking skills to human sexuality research and become more critical judges of research conducted by others.
