Summary

Focused, fresh and engaging. Halgin & Whitbourne's clinical perspective is designed to capture student interest and facilitate comprehension through the extensive use of current and highly relevant clinical case studies. A more intensive pedagogical format, a student-centered writing style that humanizes the disorders, and an integrative approach to treatment using the biopsychosocial model are the foundations of this text's success. The new edition maintains these features while keeping pace with important developments in the field, including the diathesis stress model and biological causes of psychopathology.
