This briefer version of Barlow and Durand's best-selling text was created specifically for those professors who were drawn to the authors' standard-setting integrative approach but wanted a shorter, easier book. In this briefer version, the authors provideűin approximately 550 pagesűa integrative approach that helps students understand how each psychological disorder is determined by multiple factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. Throughout the text, real cases¨95% from the authors' own case files¨provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book, and ensure that readers never lose sight of the fact that beyond the DSM-IV criteria, the theories, and the research are real people. The Second Edition offers a complete course solution, including online resources, an interactive CD-ROM, six compelling videos, a casebook, two books of readings, and other ancillaries that make abnormal psychology come alive for students.
