Summary

This text continues to be one of the most current, authoritative overviews of the theories and research in psychopathology and intervention. Its widely praised scientific clinical approach blends the clinical and empirical/experimental as the authors examine each disorder from multiple perspectives. The text emphasizes different paradigms with a particular emphasis on the diathesis-stress paradigm as necessary for understanding most psychopathologies.

Features:

  • Balances clinical and empirical/experimental coverage with the text's scientific clinical approach.
  • Involves the reader in a collaborative quest for answers to questions in the discipline. This serves both to motivate the study of abnormal psychology while also enhancing the reader's problem-solving skills.
  • Analyzes research, rather than simply citing it, encouraging readers to think critically about what they are learning and to develop a framework for evaluating research evidence.
