Blaney and Theodore Millon have once again selected the most eminent researchers in abnormal psychology to cover all the major mental disorders, allowing them to discuss notable issues in the various pathologies which are their expertise.

With extensive coverage of personality disorders and issues related to classification and differential diagnosis, this volume will be exceptionally useful for all mental health workers, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers, and as a textbook focused on understanding psychopathology in depth, as well as a valuable guide for graduate psychology students and psychiatric residents.

"Since the adoption of the DSM-IV, there has been a void in graduate-level textbooks on psychopathology, that is, until now. This text lives up to its responsibility to provide students with updated and in-depth information that takes them well beyond every undergraduate psychopathology text. It is balanced in every dimension that I had hoped, truly a scholarly achievement."--Dwain Pellebon, University of Oklahoma

This book will enhance understanding of theory and research of the psychopathology behind major mental health disorders and their treatment options. It is intended for mainly mental health workers including psychiatrists, psychiatry residents, clinical psychologists, social workers, and psychiatry nurses. The focus is on the psychopathology of various diseases. More than 10 different Axis I disorders are covered in a detailed manner. What sets this book apart from others is the extensive coverage of personality disorders, and discussion of their psychopathology and treatment options. The editors are experts in their areas. Tables and illustrations enhance understanding of the material. Approaching each diagnosis from various perspectives without taking sides, the editors broaden the view of the audience." - Ozlem Uyar, Doody's Electronic Journal
