Designed for the modular AS and A2 syllabi, in particular the AQA 'A' syllabus, this book explains the main models and systems used in the classification and diagnosis of psychological abnormality, with an emphasis on research into the reliability and validity of the various approaches. It discusses mental health issues such as Multiple Personality Disorder, and looks at recent research on the contextually based nature of the disorder. The arguments for culture-bound syndromes are also discussed. The author has written a clear, user-friendly introduction to this aspect of abnormal psychology, which will be ideal for students new to the topic and those from other disciplines who are studying educational psychology, such as teachers, child carers and teaching assistants.
