Psychopathology and Psychotherapy: From DSM-IV Diagnosis to Treatment
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Updated with current terminology and classification of mental disorders based on "The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders," Fourth Edition (DSM-IV), (American Psychiatric Association, 1994), this resource provides guidelines for DSM-IV diagnosis of the major mental health disorders. For each diagnosis, an Adlerian based (Individual Psychology) treatment plan is then offered and an illustartive case study presented. Each contributing author is a practitioner of Individaul Psychology and therefore addresses a given disorder in terms of Adlerian theory: feelings of inferiority; striving for superiority; defense mechanisms generated in response to external threats; attitudes towards life; and behavioural goals generated - attention, power, revenge and inadequacy.
