Appropriate for courses in Abnormal Psychology, Abnormal Behaviour, and Psychopathology. One of the first texts to adopt a systems approach, integrating biological, psychological and social theories to explain abnormal behaviour. The text is known for presenting scientific methods in clearly and for discussing methodology in small, bite-size pieces throughout the narrative (primarily through "Research Methods" boxes), rather than in a single, difficult-to-read chapter. Detailed case studies open each chapter and historical background information is provided to give students interesting, "real-life" examples of abnormal behaviour. In addition, each chapter follows a consistent organization, including major sections on typical symptoms/features, classification, epidemiology, etiology, and treatment.
