Abnormal Psychology: An Integrative Approach ((TOP))



"This book's strength is its progressive view of the field. Barlow and Durand do an excellent job of presenting the need for a multidimensional, integrative system of studying abnormal behavior. They provide the clearest illumination of reciprocal causation and its relation to integrative models of abnormality. . . Congruent with this integrationist approach is the authors' successful exploration of cultural differences. The unique use of case studies should heighten student interest. The authors use data from their clinical practices and use actual pictures of such clients. This makes the cases come to life.""The cases are well-done, provide a welcome relief to technical reading, and bring disorders to life. They are stories that have impact and thus provide a tool for consolidating memory.""The cases are well-done, provide a welcome relief to technical reading, and bring disorders to life.

Abnormal Psychology: An Integrative Approach



This first South African edition of Abnormal Psychology An Integrative Approach offers students a local version of this well-known text by David Barlow and V. Mark Durand. Balancing biological, psychological, social and cultural approaches, the ground-breaking integrative approach followed is the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology. This edition successfully blends local and sophisticated research and an accessible writing style with the most widely recognised method of discussing psychopathology. Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces, both global ones and those unique to South Africa and Africa, that contribute to psychopathology. Furthermore, this South African edition includes a perspective on positive psychology and well-being in the context of psychopathology 041b061a72
