Essential Abnormal Psychology
Publication Date 27 Oct 17
OverviewFully integrating the DSM-5, this brief version of Durand, Barlow, and Hofmann's widely used ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY presents the subject through the authors' standard-setting integrative approach -- the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying psychopathology. Students learn that psychological disorders are rarely caused by a single influence, but rooted in the interaction among biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political factors. Real case profiles -- 95 percent from the authors' own case files -- provide a realistic context for the scientific discussions. They also help to ensure that readers never lose sight of the fact that real people are behind the DSM-5 criteria, the theories, and the research.
