In this briefer, easier version of Durand and Barlow's text, the authors explain abnormal psychology through their standard-setting integrative approach—the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying the subject. Through this integrative approach, you will learn that psychological disorders are rarely caused by a single influence, but rooted in multiple factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. A conversational writing style, video clips of real clients (located online and on the accompanying Abnormal Psychology Live 2.5 CD-ROM), and real case profiles—most from the authors' own case files—provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book. In addition, these features ensure that you never lose sight of the fact that abnormal psychology is about "us" and not about "them"—and that real people are beyond the DSM-IV-TR criteria, the theories, and the research.
