Contemporary Cases for Students

Case Studies in Abnormal Behavior brings the field of abnormal psychology to life with its rare combination of readability, humor, and strong scholarship.

This rich collection of case studies integrates contemporary and recognizable classic cases to illustrate a wide range of clinical and legal issues. To enable students to more fully understand the nature of the disorder, each case contains the 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.
