Abnormal Psychology in Context : Voices and Perspectives (ISBN10: 0395874513; ISBN13: 9780395874516)
ISBN13: 978-0395874516
ISBN10: 0395874513

Summary: This engaging collection of more than 40 first-person accounts and narratives illustrates key issues associated with psychological disorders through the experiences of affected individuals, their families, and their therapists. In addition to sparking immediate student interest, these personal accounts promote comprehension and retention of the origins, symptoms, and treatment of psychological disorders. Students also gain a broader understanding of the effects of ps
ychological disorders on social relationships. Topics covered include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, dissociative identity disorder, Alzheimer's disease, and others.
  • Carefully designed for use either on its own or as a supplement to a core text, this text provides a real-life context for abnormal psychology.
  • Useful contextual materials include chapter and reading overviews, biographies, and a Psychological Concepts guide, which precedes each selection to highlight the disorder and related concepts.
  • Response and Analysis questions promote critical thinking by asking students to relate the readings to their core text, examine their personal reactions, and consider cultural and gender influences.
  • Research questions following each chapter cover basic methodology: identifying and measuring variables, constructing simple research designs, controlling for extraneous variables, and applying ethical research principles.
  • A unique instructor support section offers tips for using the text in small and large classes, and for promoting class discussions and projects.
