Summary

This introduction to abnormal psychology is designed to make the material more accessible and inviting to a new generation in a changing world. Noteworthy for its clear and engaging writing style that is accessible to readers, superior pedagogy, many engaging case examples and user-oriented applications, and integration of sociocultural material throughout. The authors adopt an interactionist approach in viewing abnormal behavior in terms of a complex interplay of factors representing psychological, biological, and sociocultural domains. Features personal accounts spanning a wide range of disorders, including depression, schizophrenia, eating disorders, autism, panic disorder, and other mental health problems. The free CD-ROM offers fifteen new segments from the "Speaking Out" series, including interviews with persons who have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, anorexia, bulimia, PTSD, alcoholism, schizophrenia, autism, ADHD, bipolar disorder, social phobia, hypochondriasis, and personality disorders. Highlights controversial issues in the field (e.g., Recovered Memory Controversy, EMDR: A Fad or a Find), and applications (e.g., How To Cope with a Panic Attack; Suicide Prevention; Rape Prevention; and Anger Management). A comprehensive reference for professionals in the psychology and/or medical fields.
