Summary

A series of vivid and detailed portraits of individuals with a particular psychiatric disorder, this text is an ideal supplement for any abnormal psychology course. Students gain a deeper understanding of what life is like for people who have the disorders, and develop the critical thinking skills needed to understand diagnosis and treatment decisions. Covering a wide range of ages and ethnicity, and both genders, the 20 chapters each introduce one individual, highlighting the complex experience from both the patient's and the therapist's perspective.

  • A critical thinking emphasis encourages students to sort out the patterns, conflicts, and causes of a disorder themselves, even before the outcome is revealed.
  • Following logical framework, the text walks students through each case, first presenting the case history, followed by critical thinking questions, a summary of the assessment process, the therapist's diagnosis, and the individual's treatment.
  • Thought-provoking classroom discussion questions conclude each case.
