Summary

This rich collection of case studies integrates contemporary and recognizable classic cases to illustrate a wide range of clinical and legal issues related to abnormal psychology. Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology brings the field of abnormal psychology to life for students with its rare combination of readability, humor, and strong scholarship. Students gain a greater understanding of what a person experiences, and how he/she reacts to the diverse factors studied in psychopathology, as they apply principles of abnormal psychology to these cases. To enable students to more fully understand the nature of the disorder, each case in this book contains the full background material relevant to etiological, diagnostic, and therapeutic considerations. Also, significant family and social history data are presented in order to give students a clear picture of how specific behavior patterns were generated and maintained.
