Abstract:

"Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology is a collection of contemporary and classic cases that brings the field of abnormal psychology to life for students with its rare combination of readability, humor, and strong scholarship. To enable students to more fully understand the nature of the disorder, each case in this book contains full background material relevant to etiological, diagnostic, and therapeutic considerations. Significant family and social history data are also presented in order to give students a clear picture of how specific behavior patterns were generated and maintained."--BOOK JACKET.
