Psychology of Human Relations is the study of psychology from a living or personal point of view with emphasis on practical application.

The following text was created as part of an Open Oregon grant to promote the creation and use of
Open Educational Resources for college students. The Mt Hood Community College version of
“Psychological Adjustment” differs from the original text created by Tori Kearns and Deborah Lee at
East Georgia State College in the following ways. First, content revisions were made in existing
learning modules to better suit the needs of our department. Specifically, we removed the modules X.
Understanding Gender, and XII. Loneliness and Solitude. Significant revisions were made to the
modules on Stress, Communication, and Work/Choosing a Career with updated graphics and reading
materials. Second, the authors created learning objectives and keyword lists that coordinated with the
newly added materials. Finally, the authors made significant changes to how the materials were
presented in the text to increase student accessibility. In the original Kearns & Lee text, the learning
modules were populated with external links, some of which were broken or not available. Where
appropriate, the authors translated materials from external sources into a PDF version of the current
textbook, so that external links were no longer necessary to access the reading materials.
