In this briefer version of Durand and Barlow’s widely taught text, the authors give an explanation for odd psychology through their standard-setting integrative approach–the most brand new, scientifically valid method for studying the subject. Through this integrative approach, students learn that psychological disorders are rarely caused by a single influence, but rooted in the interaction among more than one factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogy, and real case profiles–95 percent from the authors’ own case files–provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book. As well as, these features make sure that readers never lose sight of the truth that real people are in the back of the DSM criteria, the theories, and the research. NOW up to date with a DSM-5 supplement to be had on the text website.
