Summary

Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology is a rich collection of contemporary and classic cases that brings the field of abnormal psychology to life for students with its rare combination of readability, humor, and strong scholarship. To enable students to more fully understand the nature of the disorder, each case in this book contains full background material relevant to etiological, diagnostic, and therapeutic considerations. Significant family and social history data are also presented in order to give students a clear picture of how specific behavior patterns were generated and maintained. In addition to updated research, references, and commentary throughout, the Seventh Edition offers a number of fascinating and informative new cases: bull; A case of schizophrenia: John Forbes Nash, the subject of the book and movie, A Beautiful Mind. A case of anorexia nervosa: Louise Gluck, the 2004 Poet Laureate of the United States. Cases of kleptomania and shoplifting: Winona Ryder and John Lennon. Cases of malignant narcissim: Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Saddam Hussein. A case of Munchausen by Proxy: Marna. The first well-documented case of a serial killer in the United States: Herman Mudgett (a.k.a. Dr. Henry Holmes).
