Balancing biological, psychological, social and cultural approaches, ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY successfully blends sophisticated research (including new prevention coverage) with the most widely recognized method of discussing psychopathology. Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces that contribute to psychopathology. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogical elements, integrated case studies (95 percent from authors' own files), video clips of clients (on the free accompanying Abnormal Psychology Live CD-ROM), and additional study tools make this text the most complete learning resource available.
Incl. somatoform & dissociative disorders/physical disorders & health psychology/schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders
A textbook that eliminates the traditional compartmentalized approach to psychopathology in favor of an integrative approach which demonstrates that disorders are multiply determined by biological, psychological, social, cultural, familial, and political forces. It contains the final DSM-IV criteria, including what are, in some cases, substantial changes from the draft criteria published in March 1993. Annotation c.
