Quick Overview

This fresh and innovative textbook aims at introducing readers to the rapidly evolving science of abnormal psychology by thoroughly integrating DSM-5.

This book offers up-to-date coverage of topics through a multilevel perspective ranging from culture to genetics. This approach helps students to move beyond simple nature/nurture standpoints to new ways of considering psychological disorders based on current interdisciplinary research.

Evolutionary, biological, neurological, psychological, social, sociocultural, and political aspects are explored with an eye toward critical thinking and evaluation. The text’s first-person narratives and case studies help readers understand better the experiences of a person with a psychological disorder while demonstrating the individual’s ability to live a full and productive life.
