9780306463815: Advanced Abnormal Psychology

Although senior undergraduate psychology students and first year master's-and doctoral-level students frequently take courses in advanced abnormal psychology, it has been almost two decades since a book by this title has appeared. Professors teaching this course have had a wide variety of texts to select from that touch on various aspects of psychopathology, but none has been as comprehensive for the student as the present volume. Not only are basic concepts and models included, but there are specific sections dealing with childhood and adolescent dis­ orders, adult and geriatric disorders, child treatment, and adult treatment. We believe the professor and advanced student alike will benefit from having all the requisite material under one cover. Our book contains 26 chapters presented in five parts, each part preceded by an editors' introduction. The chapters reflect updates in the classification of disorders (i. e. , DSM-IV). In Part I (Basic Concepts and Models), the chapters include diagnosis and classfication, assess­ ment strategies, research methods, the psychoanalystic model, the behavioral model, and the biological model. Parts II (Childhood and Adolescent Disorders) and III (Adult and Older Adult Disorders), each containing seven chapters, represent the bulk of the book. To ensure cross-chapter consistency, each of these chapters on psychopathology follows an identical format, with the following basic sections: description of the disorder, epidemiology, clinical picture (with case description), course and prognosis, familial and genetic patterns, and diag­ nostic considerations.

Review:

From reviews of the First Edition:
`... [D]esigned to provide coverage of the field of abnormal psychology at an advanced level...[A] very ambitious undertaking, with 49 contributors producing 26 chapters... [A] helpful resource for upper-level undergraduates regarding Axis I disorders in adults and children.'
Contemporary Psychology
`Most senior undergraduate psychology students and beginning doctoral-level students are expected to take one or more courses in advanced abnormal psychology and a wide variety of texts are available to meet this need. Few are as comprehensive or timely as the present volume... The contributors include...recognized authorities...'
Child and Family Behavior Therapy
`... [A]n excellent text dealing with the many problems...of the field of abnormal psychology as it exists in today's society... [A] group of highly specialized experts...provide the student of abnormal psychology with a textbook of advanced data. This collection of authors and represented topics appear[s] to satisfy the criteria necessary for an outstanding text in the area of advanced abnormal psychology...[and]...can also function as a reference book for practicing clinicians. I recommend it wholeheartedly for anyone teaching, researching, or practicing clinically within the field of clinical psychology, psychiatry, or social services.'
Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry
