Description

The fourth edition of Psychopathology will be a comprehensive and up-to-date text about the etiology and treatment of the most important DSM-5 psychological disorders. Intended for first-year graduate students in clinical psychology, counseling psychology, and related programs, this new edition will continue to focus on research and empirically supported information while also challenging students to think critically. The first part of the book will cover the key issues, ideas, and concepts in psychopathology, providing students with 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 the second 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 final section will focus on developmental psychopathology and the most common disorders of childhood and adolescence.
