I purchased this textbook for a college course of the same subject and the cost was cheaper than the college bookstore. This textbook is intelligent, a great read, and the layout is not overdone. The actual experiences of clients, their families are very useful and interesting. I enjoyed reading this textbook. I rarely keep my textbooks but I plan on keeping it rather than selling it back.

Summary

Fundamentals of Abnormal Psychologyhelps students understand what it is really like to live with, study, and treat psychological disorders. Combining the latest research with the actual experiences of clients, their families, and practicing therapists, Ron Comer opens the doors of this inherently fascinating field in an eye-opening, science-based, and yet human way. Comer not only encourages students to think critically about the science and study of mental disordershe also reveals the humanity behind them. The new edition ofFundamentals of Abnormal Psychologyincorporates new directions in theory, diagnosis, and therapy, with much new material on cultural aspects of psychological dysfunction, on "new wave" cognitive and cognitive-behavioral approaches, and on the latest relevant findings from the field of neuroscience. It is also accompanied by the latest in media-powered teaching and learning support, including the new Abnormal Psychology Video Tool Kit.
