Models Of Psychopathology, Paperback / softback Book

Models Of Psychopathology Paperback / softback


Models and theories of psychopathology and their associated clinical practice do not represent scientific fact so much as a variation in perspective within psychopathology itself. Several favoured models exist within any society at a given time, and as well as changing historically over time, they also differ culturally between societies.

This book examines:. the similarities, differences and points of integration in the main models of psychopathology. how the theoretical conceptualizations underpinning these models are reflected in the theory and the clinical practice of different schools of psychotherapy. how various models are used in everyday practice . whether clinicians adhere to the rules of a given model or whether, in fact, there is more integration in practice than there appears to be in theoretical conceptualizations. Models of Psychopathology is aimed at advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students of clinical psychology, counselling psychology, psychotherapy and counselling.

It will also be of interest to therapy students in professional training courses and experienced clinicians who want to know more about this aspect of psychotherapy.
