Kring, Davison, Neale, and Johnson's Abnormal Psychology sets the standard for clarity, cutting-edge coverage, authoritative content, and clinical emphasis. The authors invite students to examine the many different facets of psychopathology -- to search for clues, follow-up on hunches, and evaluate evidence on the origins of these disorders and the effectiveness of specific interventions.

Now in their new 10th Edition, the authors have also greatly expanded the text's pedagogical features, making it even more student-friendly, engaging, and informative.

"Current trends in the field are well reflected with the sections on genetics, neuroscience, and cognitive science." - Jack Nitschke,University of Wisconsin

"I was particularly impressed by the skill with which the authors were able to discuss complex material in a clear fashion." - Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, Ohio State University

From the Publisher:

This book introduce readers to abnormal psychology, addressing the causes of psychopathology as well as issues in the treatment and prevention of abnormal behavior. It uses four perspectives to study abnormal psychology: biological, psychoanalytic, learning, and cognitive.

From the Back Cover:

Over 1,000,000 Students Can’t Be Wrong! 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. Now thoroughly updated and revised to reflect the latest thinking and research in the field, this new Eighth Edition continues the tradition of excellence established in each previous edition. 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. New Features in the Eighth Edition

  • Discussion of therapies is now fully integrated within the disorder chapters and throughout the text.
  • An expanded Chapter 2 presents therapy paradigms earlier than in the previous edition.
  • An entirely new Chapter 17 discusses process and outcome research on treatment and controversial issues surrounding the therapy enterprise.
  • Many new graphics and tables illustrate and summarize major points.
  • Includes more than 1,000 new references.
The reviewers have been raving about this new edition! "I think the thrust of the book is clear from chapter 1. I actually found the historical material inspiring, as there is an interesting story here about how mental illness came to be viewed in an enlightened, humane way. The discussion of paradigms is sophisticated but accessible; the NASA/Mars material is really great. The use of the Langer and Abeson study is clever." —Thomas Bradbury, UCLA "I was impressed with balanced presentation of issues such as the insanity defense, research and treatment ethics, involuntary commitment, privilege, and confidentiality. The authors make clear that these are complicated issues with few straightforward answers." —Judith Le Master, Scripps College "I agree with the authors’ goals for the text. By emphasizing the subjectivity of mental illness along with the historical underpinnings of modern clinical psychology, they set the reader up for a learning experience that emphasizes our Socratic awareness of the limits of our science." —Michael Hufford, University of Montana
