Psychological disorders affect nearly all of us at some point in our life-times. Look at the people in the photos above and on the cover of this text: chances are a number of them either suffer from a disorder or have a friend or family member who does. Through the use of extensive case studies of real people, Richard Halgin and Susan Whitbourne seek to help their readers gain a deeper understanding of how mental disorders impact the lives and worldviews of those affected. This text will give you a uniquely intimate perspective on psychological disorders, their treatment, and how they manifest themselves in different ways over the course of the lifespan. Book jacket.
