The sixth Canadian edition of Abnormal Psychology continues its groundbreaking integrative approach to delivering the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology through its balance of biological, psychological, social, and cultural factors. The author team blends sophisticated research and an accessible writing style with the most widely recognized method of discussing psychopathology. Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces that contribute to psychopathology. Revised to be lighter and easier to comprehend, the conversational writing style and consistent pedagogical elements of this text―as well as integrated case studies (95 percent from the authors’ own files) and additional study tools―make this the most comprehensive resource on Abnormal Psychology available.
