Overview

About the Product

Balancing biological, psychological, social, and cultural approaches, the Fifth Canadian Edition of Abnormal Psychology’s groundbreaking integrative approach continues its tradition of delivering the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology. The author team — now including Dr. Stefan G. Hofmann — blends sophisticated research and an accessible writing style with the most widely recognized method of discussing psychopathology. Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces that contribute to psychopathology. With a conversational writing style and consistent pedagogical elements, this comprehensive resource includes integrated case studies (95 percent from the authors' own files) and additional study tools. Also available: the MindTap® online learning experience, featuring video activities and clips of clients introduced in the book.

Features

  • Like editions before it, chapters in the Fifth Canadian Edition have been carefully revised to reflect the very latest research studies on psychological disorders, with hundreds of new references.

  • Unlike texts that take a linear single-cause, single-treatment approach, Barlow et al. integrates the contributions of biological, psychological, social, and cultural factors into descriptions of the etiology and treatment of psychopathology. Frequently, a single case is carried throughout the discussion of each disorder, including coverage of treatment issues and outcomes.

  • “From the Inside” case studies, featuring real clients, are incorporated into the flow of the text, providing a realistic context for the scientific research in the book. These case studies ensure that students never lose sight of the fact that beyond diagnostic criteria, theory, and research, there are human beings struggling with these disorders.

  • This text features substantial, cutting-edge coverage of prevention. The authors discuss a variety of topics that will pique students' interest -- for example, how to prevent eating disorders, sleep disorders, substance abuse and dependence, suicide, antisocial disorders in children, and more.

  • The authors thoroughly cover cultural and gender factors as they relate to abnormal behaviour. For example, an updated discussion of services for individuals with gender dysphoria is included in Chapter 10, "Sexual Dysfunctions, Paraphilic Disorders, and Gender Dysphoria."

  • Student Learning Outcomes, placed at the start of each chapter, assist instructors in accurately assessing and mapping questions throughout the chapter. The outcomes are mapped to the core APA goals and are integrated throughout the instructor resources and testing program.

  • “Innovative Approaches,” appearing in most disorder chapters, discuss forward-thinking treatments such as dialectical behaviour therapy, the use of “vice vaccines” to manage addiction, and the development of designer drugs for attention deficit disorder and other conditions, based on a person’s genetic profile.

  • Visual Summaries (found at the end of each chapter on disorders) are colourful, two-page charts that succinctly summarize the causes, development, symptoms, and treatment of each disorder covered in the chapter. Barlow et al.’s integrative approach is instantly evident in these diagrams, which show the interaction of biological, psychological, and social factors in the etiology and treatment of disorders. The visual summaries will help the instructor wrap up discussions, and students will appreciate them as study aids. There is a new visual summary after Chapter 1, outlining the historical timeline of significant events.

  • Concept Checks that let students verify their comprehension appear at regular intervals throughout the chapter. Answers are at the end of each chapter, along with a more detailed Summary and Key Terms, listed in alphabetical order.
