Abnormal Psychology: An Integrative Approach
Balancing biological, psychological, social, and cultural approaches, the Fourth Canadian Edition of Abnormal Psychology?s groundbreaking integrative approach is the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology. The author team?now including Dr. Martin Lalumière?continues to blend sophisticated research and an accessible writing style with the most widely recognized method of discussing psychopathology. Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces that contribute to psychopathology. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogical elements, integrated case studies, and superior coverage of the DSM-5 (with insights from author David Barlow, an Advisor to the DSM-5 task force) help lead students to an unparalleled appreciation for the current state of what is a multidimensional and compelling clinical science.
