Summary

This in-depth casebook takes mental disorders from the realm of theory into the complex reality of human lives. It explores the full range of psychopathologies and types of patients, allowing practicing clinicians to see how disorders affect patients in real life. The eighth edition does a better job than other books in the field because it uses real clients and the most up-to-date research. Each case is based on an actual client of the authors and covers the entire scope of the disorder; from symptoms to treatment. Practicing clinicians will gain real-world insight into a variety of disorders.
