A more concise version of the highly recommended and widely used textbook, Essentials of Abnormal Psychology by Durand and Barlow maintains an integrative style. The authors explain important concepts and underlying principles of abnormal psychology by relating them to the main factors that impact such disorders. They do not limiting the study to biological, social and psychological factors, but discuss cultural, familial, and political aspects as well. The book is appreciated for its friendly writing style, conversational tone, and consistent and effective pedagogy. Essentials of Abnormal Psychology (with CD-ROM) ISBN 9780495599821 a must have for those taking up psychology courses. The text is also supplemented by the accompanying CD-ROM, which contains real case files, the majority of which come from both authors' own files. It discusses the historical context of abnormal psychology, followed by a clear explanation of the book's integrative approach to the subject. The next chapter talks about clinical assessment and diagnosis, as well as the different research methods and approaches used in studying abnormal psychology. The succeeding chapters lay down common disorders, starting from anxiety, mood, and disassociative disorders, suicide, and physical disorders. Chapter 8 is dedicated to eating and sleep disorders, followed by the chapter on sexual and gender identity disorders. Personality disorders are also discussed in detail, along with substance related disorders and impulse-control disorders. The final chapters deal with schizophrenia, psychotic disorders, and other developmental and cognitive problems. The book concludes with the legal and ethical issues surrounding the mental health system and services. Authors Mark Durand and David Barlow are both globally recognized experts in clinical psychology. Durand is best known for his expertise in the area of developmental disabilities and autism, while Barlow has pioneered a range of treatments and investigations in the areas of mood and anxiety disorders.
