Description

An undergraduate textbook introducing upper-level students (3rd or 4th year) to the profession and content area of Clinical Psychology. Unlike other competing texts, it explicitly portrays Clinical Psychology as a health profession that uses cognition, emotion and somatic principles to help understand, assess and modify health showcasing the field in its reality. The authors approached the task as beginning with an appreciation for the problems that the profession needs to solve which makes it easy to relate to them as ‘real’. This book is distinct because it

  • Has a fresh approach to learning, encouraging problem solving rather than lecturing

  • Offers an international perspective

  • Views clinical psychology as an integrative health care profession and not just a mental health care field

  • Integrates social and biological bases of behavior

  • Presents material pertaining to the realities of being a clinical psychologist.
