Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces that contribute to psychopathology. Features Unlike texts that take a single-cause, single-treatment approach, Barlow and Durand cover treatment in each chapter. Frequently, a single case is carried throughout the discussion of each disorder, including coverage of treatment issues and outcomes.
