Balancing biological, psychological, social, and cultural approaches, the Fifth Canadian Edition of Abnormal Psychology’s ground-breaking integrative approach continues its tradition of delivering the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology. The author team — now including Dr. Stefan G. Hofmann — 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. With a conversational writing style and consistent pedagogical elements, this comprehensive resource includes integrated case studies (95 percent from the authors' own files) and additional study tools. Also available: the MindTap® online learning experience, featuring video activities and clips of clients introduced in the book.
