The new edition of Psychopathology has been designed to provide students with a comprehensive coverage of both psychopathology and clinical practice, including extensive treatment techniques for a range of mental health issues. The text is accessible to students at a range of different learning levels, from first-year undergraduates to post-graduate researchers and those undergoing clinical training. Psychopathology is primarily evidence and research based, with coverage of relevant research, making it useful to researchers as well as clinicians. The emphasis in the book is on providing students with a real insight into the nature and experience of mental health problems, both through the written coverage and by providing a range of video material. Completely updated to include full coverage of DSM-5 diagnostic criteria and their implications, all disorder chapters now discuss the impact of DSM-5 on the diagnostic criteria for mental health problems. Additionally, the text has been updated to include an entirely new chapter on Clinical Practice, which covers the roles of mental health professionals, service provision, and the role and training of clinical psychologists, including their key capabilities and competencies.
