There is more than one reason why Davison & Neale’s Abnormal Psychology has remained one of the most popular textbooks on the subject through seven editions, and with more than 1,000,000 students over the last twenty-five years.

Featuring a student—friendly presentation of rigorous, research-based subject matter, the text invites you to participate in a process of discovery and critically consider a variety of approaches and perspectives. Davison and Neale not only present the latest theories and research, they also convey the intellectual excitement that is associated with the search for evidence on the origins of psychopathology and the effectiveness of specific interventions. And throughout the text, numerous extended case studies based on the authors’ actual clinical work, provide a context for complex concepts and demonstrate the real-life implications of the empirical work of psychopathologists and clinicians.
