Description

This title presents the human experience of psychological disorders. In Richard Halgin and Susan Krauss Whitbourne's "Abnormal Psychology: Clinical Perspectives on Psychological Disorders", students are shown the human side of Abnormal Psychology. Through the widespread use of current and highly relevant clinical case studies, the biographies and first-person quotations in the "Real Stories" feature, and the unique case media program 'Faces Interactive Online', students are presented with real-life portrayals of the disorders featured in the text. The new sixth edition includes updated research coverage and increased pedagogy, designed to maximize student comprehension. The text maintains the integrative approach to treatment using the bio-psycho-social model, the lifespan approach, and the succinct coverage that have been the foundations of the text's success.
