This comprehensive introduction to abnormal psychology bridges the gap between research and application by balancing theory and research with the clinical experience. The text thoroughly integrates in-depth clinical examples that include primary source documents, allowing students to discover for themselves the complexities of the possible causes, diagnoses, treatments and preventions of various psychological disorders. Each chapter is built around a case study (not just a snapshot or vignette as in most texts) that is carried throughout the chapter. Each case includes primary source materials (e.g. medical reports and police reports) which help guide students to a complete understanding of possible diagnoses, treatments, preventions, and outcomes. The text takes a biopsychosocial approach and completely integrates history, ethics, and legal issues as well as topics concerning gender, culture, and ethnic issues.
