Description


This groundbreaking core textbook offers a comprehensive overview of different approaches to the assessment and treatment of psychological disorders. The book retains important diagnostic perspectives, including the DSM-5, ICD-10, ICD-11 and PDM, but also widens the scope of coverage beyond mainstream psychiatric models to include psychological, biological, historical, sociocultural and therapeutic approaches. Contemporary and well-balanced, this book provides an even-handed and holistic foundation, allowing students to develop a strong critical mindset while retaining a robust research-driven orientation.

Abnormal Psychology: Contrasting Perspectives:
- features an innovative structure organized by presenting problem, examining each in a broad context of traditional psychiatric and alternative approaches
- is grounded in lived experience of disorder: shining a spot-light on service-users through 'Case Examples' scenarios and 'Lived Experience' perspective pieces
- supports student learning and critical thinking through engaging 'Controversial Question', 'Try it Yourself' and 'In Depth'
- is supported by an impressive online support features including lecture slides, a test bank, instructor manual, student study guide, multiple choice self-test quizzes, flashcard activities and more.

This book is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduates students on abnormal psychology, psychopathology, mental health or clinical psychology courses.
