A compelling book on the different aspects of abnormal psychology, Fundamentals of Abnormal Psychology not only lays down some of the most basic principles about the science of the mind but also helps students and readers recognize the human side of this discipline. Ronald Comer combines the latest findings and information about psychological dysfunctions with the real world experiences and testimonies of clients, therapists, as well as clients' families. He opens a fascinating discussion of mental dysfunctions, explaining them from a scientific and humane perspective. The latest edition also integrates new approaches in therapy and diagnosis of neurological diseases, while also incorporating new text on the cultural implications of abnormal psychology. The Fundamentals of Abnormal Psychology (ISBN 9781429216333) also comes with highly effective tools for teaching and learning, utilizing new media for better interaction. The book offers extensive information on the past and current state of abnormal psychology as a science and practice, different models of abnormality, as well as the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of such abnormalities. The succeeding chapters talk about various types of dysfunctions, like stress and anxiety disorders, mood issues, suicide, along with problems of the mind and body. Another chapter deals with problems of psychosis (schizophrenia), followed by life-span disorders like personality disorders, and disorders of childhood, adolescence, and aging. The author concludes with a section about society, law, and the role of the mental health profession. Comer is a well recognized instructor and therapist specializing in abnormal psychology who offers firsthand knowledge in the field through textbooks and lectures. He has published several books on the subject, including multiple editions of Fundamentals of Abnormal Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Abnormal Psychology and Running with Scissors, Digital Logic and Solid State Machine Design, and many more.
