Description

Brief and accurate, Essentials of Abnormal Psychology in a Changing World provides students with an accessible overview of the subject matter with an engaging focus on diversity.

Essentials of Abnormal Psychology uses an integrative approach to emphasize the interplay of psychological, socio-cultural, and biological factors in the development of psychological disorders. Its brief, streamlined format introduces students to the basic concepts of the field while being inclusive of Canadian cultural diversity, gender, and lifestyle. The text’s engaging writing style, research-based coverage, superior pedagogy, and student-oriented applications are designed to arouse student interest and encourage critical thinking.

          The third Canadian edition builds upon the strengths of its predecessor by portraying current Canadian research, examples, and case studies; streamlining content; addressing changes in the upcoming DSM-5; and including new pedagogical features designed to help student learning.
