9781412988124: Abnormal Psychology: Neuroscience Perspectives on Human Behavior and Experience

Contemporary. Current. Complete. Thoroughly integrating DSM-5, this text offers the most current coverage of abnormal psychology available!

Abnormal Psychology: Neuroscience Perspectives on Human Behavior and Experience, by William (Bill) J. Ray, is a fresh and innovative text that teaches students that abnormal psychology is a rapidly evolving science.  Evolutionary, biological, neurological, psychological, social, socio-cultural, and political perspectives are explored for a complete view of the field with an eye toward critical thinking and evaluation. Thoroughly integrating DSM-5, this text offers the most current coverage of abnormal psychology available. The text’s multi-level perspective ranges from culture to genetics, helping students move beyond simple nature/nurture perspectives to new ways of considering psychological disorders based on current interdisciplinary research. First-person accounts and case studies help readers better understand the experiences of a person with a psychological disorder while demonstrating their ability to live full, productive lives. Abundant illustrations and a terrific resource package ensure student engagement and success.

About the Author:

William J. Ray is a Professor of Psychology at Penn State University. He received his PhD from Vanderbilt University and was a Fellow in Medical Psychology at the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco. He received his undergraduate degree from Eckerd College, where he learned about the value of primary sources and the need to integrate information from a number of perspectives. As part of his clinical training, he has worked in a number of mental hospitals and clinics across the country, where he developed an appreciation of the experiences of those with mental disorders. In his career, he has served as a visiting professor and researcher at the University of Hawaii, Münster University, University of Rome, Tübingen University, and Konstanz University. At Penn State, he is currently the Director of the SCAN (Specialization in Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience) program and was previously the Director of the Clinical Psychology Program. His research has focused on approaching clinical questions from a neuroscience perspective. He has used psychophysiological and brain imaging techniques such as EEG, MEG, DTI, and fMRI to study emotionality, psychopathology, and individual differences. These studies can be found in numerous articles, book chapters, and books. His work has been published in such journals as Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Neuroscience, Psychophysiology, Physiological Reviews, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Cognitive Brain Research, Biological Psychology, NeuroImage, and Clinical Neurophysiology. This work has been funded by both national and international agencies including NIH, NIMH, NASA, NATO, and the DAAD. In addition to research, teaching has been an important part of his career. His textbooks include Methods Toward a Psychology of Behavior and Experience, Psychophysiological Methods (with Robert Stern & Karen Quigley), and Evolutionary Psychology: Neuroscience Perspectives Concerning Human Behavior and Experience. 

Review:

"I have been waiting for this textbook for over 10 years! The reason is simple―it lays out the logic for the acquisition of a mental issue, the development process from all angles, and reasonable treatment approaches―with many visuals, figures, and graphics included...I have not been this excited about a new text in a long time." (Martha V. Low)

"Great examples, clear definitions, great illustrations. Easy to read, especially for an UG class. Chapters are well organized. Very up to date and great information on neuroscience behind psychopathology.  Also, very good coverage of the DSM-5." (David M. Feldman)

"I think this is a terrific approach to abnormal psychology, reflecting a very current integrative approach to neuroscience and its reciprocal relationship with the environment." (David E. Gard)

"I have read several texts that cover the new/revised DSM and they are not as well written, nor do they come with as many graphs and charts to aid in explanation." (Elysia V. Clemens)

"These chapters are easy to digest and follow. The criteria for diagnoses are all laid out for students, and this text eliminates the need for students to buy additional books, such as the DSM (since the criteria is included)." (Ashley M. Rolnik)

"The discussion of DSM-5 is excellent―well defined." (Wayne S. Stein)

"I am a behavioral neuroscientist with interdisciplinary training and I believe that that is the best way to look at disorders. This text takes multiple perspectives into account when explaining disorders in general  [as well as] specific aspects of disorders...This text does the best job of integrating current research and the complex levels (society, individual person, and physiology) that contribute to the presence and presentation of disorders." (Lisa R. Jackson)

"Evolution-based material is brilliant, novel, and welcome." (Fred Ernst)

"The emphasis on neuroscience and neuropsychology is an important innovation in the field of mental health and represents the direction in which much of the field is moving." (Cameo Borntrager)

"Current and relevant, especially from a neuroscience perspective. This is a great book!" (Bruno M. Kappes)
