Summary

This exciting version was created specifically for those professors who were drawn to the approach the authors introduced in their longer text, Abnormal Psychology: An Integrative Approach (see page 78), but wanted a bit less detail. In this briefer version, you'll find -- in 500 pages -- a consistent organizational structure that makes the material easy to learn, fascinating real-life cases integrated into the flow of each chapter, a mix of clinical and scientific approaches, and a variety of built-in study aids designed to make the briefer version easier to use.

Throughout the briefer version -- as in their groundbreaking original text -- the authors provide students with an integration of research on the biological, psychological, and social aspects of abnormal behavior and its treatment. The result is an exciting journey into the minds of people with psychological disorders, a journey that celebrates the multifaceted roles of biological as well as psychosocial influences and at the same time recognizes that these influences work together.
