This briefer version of Barlow and Durand's best-selling text was created specifically for those professors who were drawn to the authors' standard-setting integrative approach but wanted a shorter, easier book. In this briefer version, the authors provide-in approximately 550 pages-a integrative approach that helps students understand how each psychological disorder is determined by multiple factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. Throughout the text, real cases-95% from the authors' own case files-provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book, and ensure that readers never lose sight of the fact that beyond the DSM-IV criteria, the theories, and the research are real people. The Second Edition offers a complete course solution, including online resources, an interactive CD-ROM, six compelling videos, a casebook, two books of readings, and other ancillaries that make abnormal psychology come alive for students.

"The chapters are all clear, thorough, current, and they all provide excellent examples from case studies. The accounts give the pathologies greater depth and texture. . . A major strength is the focus on a single integrative approach. Each chapter provides students with current knowledge in exceptionally clear language."
