Chris Kearney and Tim Trull’s ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY AND LIFE: A DIMENSIONAL APPROACH provides students with a concise, contemporary, science-based view of psychopathology that emphasizes the individual first and the disorder second. Through consistent pedagogy featuring clinical cases and real first-person narratives, the text illuminates our understanding that abnormal behavior--rather than being either present or absent--exists in everyone to some degree on a continuum from normal to pathological. By highlighting this widely accepted dimensional view--which places the behavior of an individual at the forefront of clinical assessment, prevention, definition, and treatment--the text’s goal is to encourage students to become intelligent consumers of mental health information. With its emphasis on assessment and treatment as well as prevention, the book gives students the tools necessary to understand the precursors of abnormal behavior, overcome the stigma associated with it, and identify the real people classified as exhibiting it.

The 49 papers in this volume originate from many different parts of the world and were selected to represent the wide range of contributions dealing with the nature, assessment, prevention and treatment of psychological dysfunction. The latest work by leading international researchers in clinical and abnormal psychology is described in this volume. There is a broad coverage of clinical areas. The papers are organised into six sections based on the type of dysfunction. The first section is concerned with emotional disorders, including papers which discuss the advances in the definition and treatment of specific disorders within general categories such as anxiety, stress and depression, but which also acknowledge the communality between these emotional systems. The papers in the second section deal with deficits in self-regulation, such as alcohol abuse, smoking and eating disorders. One of the many themes linking analysis of these "appetitive" disturbances is the notion of loss of control, and its relation to long-term regulation of intake. Section 3 is concerned with disorders of childhood, and includes several papers describing innovative approaches to the assessment and management of intellectual disability. Schizophrenia is the subject of section 4 and such central topics as the lifetime course of the disorder and the involvement of attentional processes are discussed. Section 5 contains papers on neuropsychology, including work on the assessment of perceptuo-motor dysfunction and memory impairment. Also included are several papers which focus on dysfunction arising from physical problems such as diabetes, renal disorders and dementia. A wide range of papers on health psychology can be found in section 6. These papers are indicative of the shifting emphasis from treatment of dysfunction to the active promotion of physical and psychological well-being.

In this briefer version of Durand and Barlow's widely taught text, the authors explain abnormal psychology through their standard-setting integrative approach?the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying the subject.

A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogy, video clips of real clients (located on the accompanying Abnormal Psychology Live 2.5 CD-ROM), and real case profiles?95 percent from the authors' own case files?provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book. In addition, these features ensure that readers never lose sight of the fact that real people are beyond the DSM-IV-TR criteria, the theories, and the research.

"Most textbooks on abnormal psychology include short descriptions of actual clinical cases. However, those presentations are necessarily brief and too fragmented for students to gain a clear understanding of the unique complexities of a person's troubledlife. Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology, Ninth Edition takes mental disorders from the realm of theory into the complex reality of human lives. This casebook presents comprehensive coverage of 23 high interest cases that include topics such as eating disorders, gender identity disorder, borderline personality, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Each study (1) provides detailed descriptions of a range of clinical problems, (2) illustrates some of the ways in which these problems can be viewed and treated, and (3) discusses some of the evidence that is available concerning the prevalence and causes of the disorders in question"--

Using cases from the authors’ files or from case files of other working clinicians, CASEBOOK IN ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY portrays the rich and arresting nature of disorders manifested in real people. Cases illustrate every major DSM-IV category, followed by a therapy outcome section that tells the rest of the story of what happened to these clients. Using an integrative approach, the authors emphasize the multiple causes of disorders and incorporate developmental and cultural issues in each case. Complex cases are presented without a diagnosis, so students can come up with a diagnosis on their own. This Fourth Edition includes a new case on body dysmorphic disorder as well as two new cases without a diagnosis.
