9781305094147: Essentials of Abnormal Psychology

Revised to reflect DSM-5, this briefer version of Durand and Barlow's widely used book fully describes abnormal psychology through the authors' standard-setting integrative approach--the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying the subject. Through this approach, readers learn that psychological disorders are rarely caused by a single influence, but rooted in the interaction among multiple factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogy, and real case profiles--95 percent from the authors' own case files--provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book. In addition, these features ensure that readers never lose sight of the fact that real people are behind the DSM-5 criteria, the theories, and the research.

Review:

"The information in each chapter starts from the disorder and explains it very effectively. Then it goes on to incorporate case examples as well as the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. Few books present this material in such a detailed fashion. It further presents research information, statistical facts, medications, and side effects for the particular diagnosis. Treatment information and the client/ therapist interaction are also included."

"It is one of the most effective and accessible presentations of the scientific evidence related to psychopathology in the textbook market."
