Overview

Would you like to include more high interest cases in your Abnormal Psychology course?
Most textbooks on abnormal psychology include short descriptions of actual clinical cases. However, those presentations are necessarily brief and too fragmented for students to gain a clear understanding of the unique complexities of a person's troubled life. Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology, Ninth Edition takes mental disorders from the realm of theory into the complex reality of human lives. This casebook presents comprehensive coverage of 23 high interest cases that include topics such as eating disorders, gender identity disorder, borderline personality, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Each study (1) provides detailed descriptions of a range of clinical problems, (2) illustrates some of the ways in which these problems can be viewed and treated, and (3) discusses some of the evidence that is available concerning the prevalence and causes of the disorders in question.
Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology, Ninth Edition is available in alternate versions (eBooks and custom) for professors and students. For more information, visit the "Instructor's Resource" tab or "Student Resource" tab below.
