Overview

"Many books on genetics present the reader with a seemingly endless list of recent findings. By contrast, Kerry Jang attempts not to answer questions about what is "genetic" and what is not, but about what a knowledge of the relative influence of genes versus environment means at a psychological level of analysis - to show how it changes common assumptions about classification, etiology, diagnosis, and intervention. He synthesizes psychological and psychiatric theories and hypotheses with recent findings in behavioral genetics." Clinicians and researchers alike need to understand the genetic influences on the feelings and behaviors they are seeking to change or study if they are to be effective in their work. The Behavioral Genetics of Psychopathology: A Clinical Guide empowers them with this understanding.
