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.

Casebook of 23 in-depth studies of behavioral disorders focusing on symptoms, the client's history, treatment, and outcome. A complete chapter is devoted to each patient. Presents a full range of psychopathologies and types of patients. Many of the cases include vignettes from the initial therapy interviews or from the therapy itself. The book also compares each case with the DSM categories. Presents case failures as well as successes, and points to gaps in current knowledge. A new case concerned with bulimia nervosa includes a description of a cognitive-behavioral approach to the treatment which has been found to be particularly effective in the treatment of this disorder.

Booknews
A core or supplemental text for graduate or undergraduate courses in abnormal psychology. Focusing on symptoms, the client's history, treatment, and outcome, the 22 in-depth case studies illustrate a variety of problems from classic psychotic disorders to personality disorders and various disorders of childhood and aging. The fourth edition (third in 1991) updates the discussions in light of recent theories and insights. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is a realistic examination of the most prevalent disorders clinicians see in their patients today. The in-depth presentations demonstrate the developmental history and the cases stimulate critical thinking and enhance discussion with students and other clinicians.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide detailed descriptions of a range of clinical problems, to illustrate the various ways these problems are viewed and treated, and to discuss the prevalence and causes of the various disorders. The book goes beyond the typical brief presentation found in most contemporary textbooks and can stand alone as a casebook complete with a thorough history and clinical presentation.
Audience: Both undergraduate and graduate students in psychology will benefit from this casebook. In addition, medical students, nurses, social workers, and first year psychiatry residents will find this to be an excellent study tool. Professors will find this to be useful companion for their psychopathology courses.
Features: The major Axis I and II disorders are presented in relevant and realistic cases. Mood disorders, anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, eating disorders, childhood disorders such as ADHD, ODD, and autism as well as sexual dysfunction are presented. Each case includes presenting complaints, social history, conceptualization and treatment, discussion, theoretical perspectives, treatment implications, and discussion questions. The only shortcoming is, for some cases, the discussion of psychopharmacological treatment is too basic or not exactly reflective of current practice. However, this in no way detracts from the excellent case presentations and the book itself.
Assessment: Finally, a realistic abnormal psychology casebook that one can confidently use for teaching purposes.
