Description

The discipline of abnormal psychology has become increasingly complex in recent years, particularly as it incorporates data from such sister disciplines as epidemiology, genetics, sociology, anthropology, and biology. In a thoroughgoing revision of the first edition of this classic text, published by Plenum in 1994, the editors have assembled a distinguished roster of contributors to address such topics as basic concepts and models, childhood and adolescent disorders, adult and older adult disorders, child treatment, and adult treatment. Not only will the student gain a comprehensive understanding of child and adult psychopathology, but the inclusion of specific sections on both child and adult treatment clearly illustrate the critical links between psychopathology and its remediation - a feature that will benefit instructors and students since all requisite material is included under one cover.
