Chris Kearney and Tim Trull's ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY AND LIFE: A DIMENSIONAL APPROACH provides you with a concise, contemporary, science-based view of psychopathology that emphasizes the individual first. Featuring clinical cases and real first-person narratives, the text illuminates our understanding that abnormal behavior can be viewed along a continuum. This widely accepted view places the behavior of an individual at the forefront of clinical definition, assessment, and treatment. The book also gives you an understanding of the features and epidemiologies, risk factors and prevention, assessment and treatment, and long-term prognosis and associated stigma of mental disorders. Special sections are devoted to college students, ideas for those who may have certain symptoms of mental disorders, and other consumer-based material -- demonstrating how the subject is personally relevant to you and helping you become an intelligent consumer of mental health information.
