EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Abnormal Psychology by James Hansell and Lisa Damour bridges the gap between the evolving field of abnormal psychology and the current textbook market. This text is a new, innovative approach to the teaching of abnormal psychology. While covering the latest DSM-IV-TR system and categories, core concepts in abnormal psychology form the backbone of the text. Abnormal Psychology provides an alternative for professors searching for a manageable textbook for their students. Hansell and Damour wrote Abnormal Psychology to help students not get lost in the details of this complex and ever changing field. To achieve this feat, the authors focus on six core concepts that make this field intriguing and appealing to students: The importance of context in defining and understanding abnormality The continuum between normal and abnormal behavior Cultural and historical relativism in defining and classifying abnormality The advantages a nd limitations of diagnoses The principle of multiple causality The connection between mind and body in abnormal behaviorAbnormal Psychology is designed to be accessible to the student and easy to use for the instructor. Hansell and Damour have streamlined the traditional table of contents of an abnormal psychology text to a fourteen chapter, affordable text without eliminating important material. For example, research methods are discussed throughout the text, social and legal issues are addressed in the chapters where they are most relevant, and treatment methods are covered in every chapter, not in a separate chapter on psychotherapy.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Chris Kearney and Tim Trull’s ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY AND LIFE: A DIMENSIONAL APPROACH provides students with a concise, contemporary, science-based view of psychopathology that emphasizes the individual first. Through consistent pedagogy featuring clinical cases and real first-person narratives, the text illuminates our understanding that abnormal behavior can be viewed along a continuum. By highlighting this widely accepted dimensional view which places the behavior of an individual at the forefront of clinical definition, assessment, and treatment the text’s goal is to foster personal relevance for students and encourage them to become intelligent consumers of mental health information. The book also gives students a comprehensive understanding of the features and epidemiologies, risk factors and prevention, assessment and treatment, and long term prognosis and associated stigma of mental disorders.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Although senior undergraduate psychology students and first year master's-and doctoral-level students frequently take courses in advanced abnormal psychology, it has been almost two decades since a book by this title has appeared. Professors teaching this course have had a wide variety of texts to select from that touch on various aspects of psychopathology, but none has been as comprehensive for the student as the present volume. Not only are basic concepts and models included, but there are specific sections dealing with childhood and adolescent dis orders, adult and geriatric disorders, child treatment, and adult treatment. We believe the professor and advanced student alike will benefit from having all the requisite material under one cover. Our book contains 26 chapters presented in five parts, each part preceded by an editors' introduction. The chapters reflect updates in the classification of disorders (i. e. , DSM-IV). In Part I (Basic Concepts and Models), the chapters include diagnosis and classfication, assess ment strategies, research methods, the psychoanalystic model, the behavioral model, and the biological model. Parts II (Childhood and Adolescent Disorders) and III (Adult and Older Adult Disorders), each containing seven chapters, represent the bulk of the book. To ensure cross-chapter consistency, each of these chapters on psychopathology follows an identical format, with the following basic sections: description of the disorder, epidemiology, clinical picture (with case description), course and prognosis, familial and genetic patterns, and diag nostic considerations.
