Overview

James Hansell and Lisa Damour offer a fresh take on the teaching of abnormal psychology. Recognizing the complexity of this ever-changing field, the authors introduce six-core concepts (depicted at left) as the framework for the text. While fully covering the DSM-IV-TR system and categories, the text uses the core concepts to contextualize abnormal behavior in a way that helps students understand, remember, and integrate course material.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I found Hansell's ability to explain complex concepts in the area of abnormal psychology to be insightful, creative and imaginative." (Joseph A. Davis, Ph.D., SDSU College of Sciences)

"This highly readable book is the first to focus on a set of core concepts that help students understand the connections among different aspects of the field, and the context with in which this information can be understood. The authors' treatment of the major perspectives is even handed, and critically minded." (William Flack, Ph.D., Bucknell University)

This book is quite different from the texts I currently have on my shelf. The authors have taken a unique, but welcome, approach to presenting the subject matter. The authors have provided explanations that help students understand what has become clinical lore.(Lester Wright, Ph.D., Western Michigan University)
