Summary

Fully updated for DSM-5, this exciting revision complements the abnormal psychology course by providing 17 case histories based on the authors' clinical experiences.  Each case study goes beyond DSM-5 diagnosis to describe the individual's history and symptoms, a theoretical discussion of treatment, a specific treatment plan, the actual treatment conducted, and assessment questions for students. The casebook also provides three "You Decide" cases -- written without diagnosis or treatment, so students can identify disorders and suggest appropriate therapies.  This new edition adds assessment questions to the end of each case and also features three brand new cases: hoarding, somatic symptom disorder, and gender dysphoria.

Author Biography

Ethan E. Gorenstein is clinical director of the Behavioral Medicine Program at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center and a professor of clinical psychology in the department of psychiatry at Columbia University. He is also the author of The Science of Mental Illness (Academic Press). He has an active clinical practice devoted to the use of evidence-based psychological treatment methods for problems of both children and adults.

Ronald Comer has been a professor in Princeton University’s Department of Psychology for the past 27 years and has served as Director of Clinical Psychology Studies for most of that time. He is also currently the director of the department’s undergraduate program.
Professor Comer has received the President’s Award for Distinguished Teaching at the university. His course "Abnormal Psychology" is one of the university’s most popular, and he has offered it almost every year since his arrival at Princeton. He is also a practicing clinical psychologist and serves as a consultant to the Eden Institute for Persons with Autism and to hospitals and family practice residency programs throughout New Jersey. Additionally, he holds an adjunct position as Clinical Associate Professor of Family Medicine at the UMDNJ–Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. In addition to writing Fundamentals of Abnormal Psychology, Professor Comer is the author of the textbook Abnormal Psychology, now in its fourth edition, and the co-author of Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology. He has also published a number of journal articles in clinical psychology, social psychology, and family medicine. Professor Comer was an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania and a graduate student at Clark University. He currently lives in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, with his wife, Marlene, and their dog, Annie. From there, he can keep an eye on his sons—Greg, a resident of New York, and Jon, currently a Philadelphian—and on the resurgent Philadelphia sports teams with whom he grew up.
