Clinical Psychology: A Modular Course

Series Editor: Chris R Brewin

"I truly like the books in this series because they are a quick reference and a great teaching tool." Nicholas Greco IV, MS (Abbott Laboratories), USA

Clinical Psychology: A Modular Course was designed to overcome problems faced by the traditional textbook in conveying what psychological disorders are really like.

All the books in the series, written by leading scholars and practitioners in the field, can be read as stand-alone texts, but they will also integrate with other modules to form a comprehensive resource in clinical psychology.

Students of psychology, medicine, nursing, and social work, as well as busy practitioners in many professions, often need an accessible but thorough introduction to how people experience anxiety, depression, addiction, or other disorders, how common they are, and who is most likely to suffer from them, as well as up-to-date research evidence on the causes and available treatments.

The series will appeal to those who want to go deeper into the subject than the traditional textbook will allow, and base their examination answers, research projects, assignments, or practical decisions on a clearer and more rounded appreciation of the clinical and research evidence.
