Overview

About the Product

Balancing biological, psychological, social, and cultural approaches, the Fourth Canadian Edition of Abnormal Psychology’s groundbreaking integrative approach is the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology. The author team—now including Dr. Martin Lalumière—continues to blend 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. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogical elements, integrated case studies, and superior coverage of the DSM-5 (with insights from author David Barlow, an Advisor to the DSM-5 task force) help lead students to an unparalleled appreciation for the current state of what is a multidimensional and compelling clinical science.

Features

  • Emphasizes the fact that in the phenomenon of implicit memory and blind sight, which may have parallels in dissociative experiences, psychological science verifies the existence of the unconscious (although it does not much resemble the seething cauldron of conflicts envisioned by Freud).

  • Acknowledges the often-neglected area of emotion theory for its rich contributions to psychopathology, weaving scientific findings from the study of emotions together with behavioural, biological, cognitive, and social discoveries to create an integrated tapestry of psychopathology.

  • Considers thoroughly the importance of development throughout the text (heavily in Chapter 14: Neurodevelopmental Disorders), helping students appreciate the need to study each disorder from childhood through adulthood and old age, while noting findings on developmental considerations in separate sections of each disorder chapter and, as appropriate, by discussing at critical points how specific developmental factors affect causation and treatment.

  • Emphasizes the ideal of the scientist-practitioner approach to psychopathology, showing how every clinician contributes to general scientific knowledge through astute and systematic clinical observations, functional analyses of individual case studies, and systematic observations of series of cases in clinical settings.

  • Enriched with authentic clinical histories to illustrate scientific findings on the causes and treatment of psychopathology, the fourth edition provides a fascinating frame of reference for the findings the author team describes. Most chapters begin with a case description, and most discussion of the latest theory and research is related to these very human cases.

New to this edition

  • Enhances the student’s experience of the field with coverage of compelling topics such as the genetic contributions to trauma exposure, the effects of early social and behavioural experience on later brain function and structure, new information on the relation of social networks to the common cold, and new data on psychosocial treatments for cancer such as mindfulness.
  • Covers the major psychological disorders in 11 chapters, focusing on three broad categories—clinical description, causal factors, and treatment and outcomes—and paying considerable attention to case studies and DSM-5 criteria, including statistical data, such as prevalence and incidence rates, sex ratio, age of onset, and the general course or pattern for the disorder as a whole.
  • Superior coverage of the DSM-5 includes the reasons for changes as well as the changes themselves, thanks to David Barlow’s direct involvement as an appointed Advisor to the DSM-5 task force. Continues its innovative discussion of treatment in the context of the disorders that are its target, instead of in a separate chapter; this is an approach that is supported by the development of specific psychosocial and pharmacological treatment procedures for specific disorders, and has been retained and improved on in this fourth edition (treatment procedures are included in the key terms and glossary).
  • The fourth Canadian edition author team now includes Martin L. Lalumière, who is recognized for his work in forensic psychology, sexual offending, psychopathy, and the paraphilias. Dr. Lalumière is currently an associate editor for the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, and on the editorial boards of the journals Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Evolutionary Psychology, and the Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality. His current research at the University of Ottawa focuses on the assessment, treatment, and etiology of the paraphilias and hypersexuality.
  • DSM-5 criteria are included in their entirety as tables in the appropriate disorder chapters.
