Essentials of Abnormal Psychology by V. Mark Durand Book PDF Summary
Fully integrating the DSM-5, Durand, Barlow, and Hofmann describe abnormal psychology through their standard-setting integrative approach -- the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying the subject. Through this approach, students learn that psychological disorders are rarely caused by a single influence, but rooted in the interaction among multiple factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogy, and real case profiles provide a realistic context for the scientific findings. This eighth edition highlights groundbreaking updates to research findings and the latest innovations in the treatment of mental disorders.
