Abnormal Psychology : Contrasting Perspectives Paperback / softback


This groundbreaking core textbook offers a comprehensive overview of different approaches to the assessment and treatment of psychological disorders.

Contemporary and well-balanced, this book provides an even-handed and holistic foundation, allowing students to develop a strong critical mindset while retaining a robust research-driven orientation. This book is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduates students on abnormal psychology, psychopathology, mental health or clinical psychology modules.
