Psychopathology continues to rise in popularity as a course of study and many students go on to pursue a career in its associated profession of clinical psychology. To answer this need, Psychopathology has been designed to provide students with a comprehensive coverage of both psychopathology and clinical practice - including extensive coverage of assessment, etiology, and effective treatment techniques for a range of mental health issues. The emphasis in the book is on providing the student with a thorough academic knowledge of psychopathology, based on current research in a range of relevant areas. In addition to establishing a working academic knowledge of psychopathology, the book also attempts to convey some of the issues and challenges that face the clinical practitioner, and to provide the reader with a realistic insight into what clinical psychologists do and how they do it. "Psychopathology's" initial chapters deal with broader conceptual issues relating to the field, including the definition of psychopathology and its assessment tools, research methods, and treatment options. Subsequent chapters focus on a range of specific psychopathologies likely to be encountered by practising psychologists.
The text is supplemented by a variety of features designed to broaden the student's understanding of psychopathology and facilitate its effective teaching. These include highlighted boxes such as focus points, activities, research methods, case histories, treatment in practice, and more. There is also a helpful DVD included, that begins with illuminating re-enactments of actual patient interviews designed to be viewed in conjunction with assessment and diagnostic information provided in the text. The DVD continues with an introduction to clinical psychology training for those interested in pursuing a career in the field. Reflecting the latest international psychopathological research and assessment techniques, Psychopathology is one of the most comprehensive and accessible sourcebooks available for students and lecturers alike.About the Author:
