From the Publisher:

Designed to engage students in the study of puzzles that challenge researchers and therapists in their search for the causes of psychopathology as well as the most effective treatments to prevent or reduce psychological suffering. The text opens with an overview of historical and scientific considerations, followed by two pivotal chapters devoted to different perspectives which lay the foundation for a variety of disorders. Chapters 6-15 discuss a specific disorder and include descriptions, causes, symptoms, social history, treatment and extended case studies.

From the Back Cover:

What Reviewers Are Saying About Neale · Davison · Haaga Exploring Abnormal Psychology Length/Brevity I could use this text for its brevity without sacrificing the scientific or intellectual rigor so highly valued in my courses...The authors have creatively reached an optimum balance of theory, research, and clinical example. In paring down the material covered, the authors have separated the wheat from the chaff. —Sandra T. Sigmon, University of Maine Cases The use of the extended case history, introduced at the beginning and revisited at the end [of chapters] is a feature that should appeal to students...Human interest material always catches the attention of the reader and makes the material easier to understand. Revisiting the case at the end of a chapter helps bring closure to the topic. —Linda E. Flickinger, St. Clair County. Community College Interim Summaries What I liked most about [the] DNH text is the interim summary. It presents one of the most significant innovations in textbook writing that I have seen in abnormal texts. I love it!...the interim summaries are visionary. —Sandra T. Sigmon, University of Maine Theory/Research The present text does a particularly nice job of presenting theories of abnormal psychology in a manner that my students should find easy to understand. —Michael Vasey, Ohio State University Multiculturalism The manuscript includes multicultural issues appropriately and these references do not appear to be merely "stuck in"—they are well integrated. —Linda E. Flickinger, St. Clair County Community College Overall I enjoyed this manuscript. I found myself reading it more closely than I had intended. The writing style is very engaging. The treatment of theory, research, and case materials is balanced. I especially liked the case presentations, and found them both interesting and sufficiently informative to illustrate the principles they were intended to explain. —Andrew Dickson, University of Southern Mississippi
