Psychopathology : Research, Assessment and Treatment in Clinical Psychology, Paperback

Psychopathology : Research, Assessment and Treatment in Clinical Psychology Paperback

Part of the BPS Textbooks in Psychology series


Psychopathology has been designed to provide students with a comprehensive coverage of both psychopathology and clinical practice, including extensive treatment techniques for a range of mental health issues.

The text is designed to be accessible to students at a range of different learning levels, from first year undergraduates to post-graduate researchers and those undergoing clinical training.

Psychopathology is primarily evidence and research based, with coverage of relevant research from as recently as 2013, making it useful to researchers as well as clinicians.

The emphasis in the book is on providing students with a real insight into the nature and experience of mental health problems, both through the written coverage and by providing a range of video material covering personal accounts of mental health problems.

The text is integrated with a wide variety of teaching and learning features that will enable facilitators to teach more effectively, and students to learn more comprehensively.

Many of these features have been updated for the new edition and new material has been included to reflect the changes in DSM-5. Features include Focus Points that discuss contentious or topical issues in detail, Research Methods boxes showing how clinical psychologists do research on psychopathology, and Case Histories detailing a range of mental health problems.

Online resources An all new student website is available at

The website houses a huge variety of new digital material including more than 50 instructional and supplementary videos covering descriptions of symptoms and aetiologies, examples of diagnosis and diagnostic interviews, recounted personal experiences of people with mental health problems, and discussions and examples of treatment.

The site also contains hundreds of new student quizzes, as well as revision flashcards, student learning activities, discussion topics, lists of relevant journal articles (many of which provide free links to relevant articles published in Wiley Blackwell journals), and topics for discussion related to clinical research and clinical practice. A fully updated lecturer test bank has also been developed including over 1,000 questions, as well as suggested essay questions and these can be accessed by instructors on our lecturer book companion site.
