9780415887908: Psychopathology: Foundations for a Contemporary Understanding

This is the most up-to-date text about the etiology and treatment of the most important psychological disorders. Intended for first-year graduate students in clinical and counseling psychology, the third edition of Psychopathology continues to focus on research and empirically supported information while also challenging students to think critically. The first part of the book is devoted to the issues, ideas, and concepts in psychopathology. These chapters give students a set of conceptual tools that will help them read more thoroughly and critically the second half of the book, which focuses on specific disorders. Each chapter in this section provides a definition, description, and brief history of the disorder it discusses, and outlines theory and research on etiology and empirically supported treatments. The length, organization, content, and level and style of writing are consistently tailored to the audience, and the disorders discussed are the ones most frequently encountered by students in their training and subsequent clinical careers. A new section addresses child and adolescent disorders, while updated sections include dimensional approaches, the biological bases of psychopathology, learning theories, developmental psychopathology, dissociative disorders, mental health and aging, and mood disorders. This valuable teaching tool is not only appropriate for students, but also professionals, who will continue to refer to it as a reference.

Review:

“The challenge of not only describing, but also starting to explain, psychopathology is a daunting one, but Psychopathology does a superb job. ... Students’ understanding and appreciation for the key issues in psychopathology etiology, assessment, intervention and research will increase tremendously by reading this text.” - Bethany Teachman, PhD, Director, Program for Anxiety, Cognition and Treatment; Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia, USA

“The editors have assembled a very distinguished group of experts whose contributions comprise a valuable textbook with excellent attention to current psychopathology research. The special attention to clinical judgment, and mental health and aging are particularly appealing and important features.” - Barry A. Edelstein, PhD, Eberly Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology, West Virginia University, USA

“This book will be of great value to mental health professionals across career stages. ... For all readers, the book's clarity and insight on the nature of psychopathology itself, on clinical assessment, on cultural dimensions, and more, will provide an invaluable resource.”Thomas Joiner, PhD, Author of Lonely at the Top and Why People Die by Suicide

"This textbook will be of great value to all students and health professionals in the field of psychology and psychiatry as it gives them access to the main issues of contemporary psychopathology and to updated data about specific disorders throughout the life-span." - Diane Purper Ouakil, European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
