Presenting the human side of Psychological Disorders. Now updated to reflect the DSM-5, Susan Krauss Whitbourne and Richard Halgin’s Abnormal Psychology: Clinical Perspectives on Psychological Disorders, show students the human side of Abnormal Psychology. Through the widespread use of current and relevant clinical case studies, and the biographies and first-person quotations in the Real Stories feature, students are presented with real-life portrayals of psychological disorders. The program maintains the integrated approach to treatment using the biopsychosocial model, and acknowledges the evolution of psychological disorders over the lifespan.
New to this edition is Connect for Abnormal Psychology, McGraw-Hill Education’s digital learning platform, which includes the groundbreaking adaptive reading experience, SmartBook, as well as Faces: Interactive and the new Interactive Case Studies for Abnormal Psychology.
