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. This version has extended cases at the end of each disorder chapter. These cases are all based on actual clinical situations and focus on problems of specific interests to the reader.
