Summary Balancing biological, psychological, social, and cultural approaches, this book's ground-breaking integrative approach is the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology. Updated with leading-edge research findings, the eighth edition draws on the expertise of David H. Barlow, V. Mark Durand, and Stefan G. Hofmann, three internationally recognized experts in clinical psychology. In ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY: AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH, the authors successfully blend sophisticated research with an accessible, engaging writing style. They go beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, exploring the interactions of the various forces that contribute to psychopathology. This comprehensive resource includes integrated case studies (95 percent from the authors' own files) and additional study tools. Important.
