Psychological scientists have identified various patterns of abnormal behavior and are beginning to understand some of the reasons behind them and how to treat people displaying them. The person we become is affected by more factors than we can ever possibly be aware of. Personality and Abnormal Psychology describes how psychological research has led to the understanding of many of those factors and how our personalities develop. One of the persistent questions involves how and why people show abnormal thought and behavior. Written in engaging and accessible prose, this new, full-color resource is enhanced with fascinating boxed features and a glossary.

This set provides a ready reference for anyone interested in this popular field of study.

Human behavior is an endlessly fascinating subject, and psychology is the science dedicated to understanding the basics of human behavior and mental processes. The brand-new Student Handbook to Psychology set helps students learn more about such concepts as perception, cognition, attention, emotion, motivation, personality, relationships, and much more. In seven full-color volumes, readers are given a comprehensive survey of psychology—from its earliest scholars and practitioners to the development of its various methods and theories and up to the most recent research of the 21st century.
