Ron Comer's brief text opens the doors of this inherently fascinating field in an eye-opening, provocative, and yet, human way--taking a subject so familiar to students from movies, television, and fiction, and showing the real drama, the real science, and the real stakes for patients and their loved ones. Drawing on his experiences in the classroom and as a practicing therapist, Comer offers balanced, integrated coverage of theories, research, disorders and treatment, feeding off of students' curiosities while confronting misconceptions about this easily misunderstood field.
