Ronald Comer is renowned in the field of abnormal psychology for his ability to communicate the scientific foundations, the clinical realities, and the human cost of psychological dysfunction.
In this new edition of his brief text, Comer again draws on his experience as an educator, researcher, and practicing therapist to cover the basic concepts of psychopathology in a way that is scientifically sound, widely accessible, and extraordinarily empathetic. The new edition features Comer's signature integration of theory, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as his broadly inclusive cross-cultural perspective.
In addition to updated coverage throughout, it offers a number of features created under Comer's supervision that bring fresh, effective new teaching approaches to the text and accompanying media. The book can also be purchased with the breakthrough online resource, LaunchPad, which offers innovative media content, curated and organised for easy assignability.
LaunchPad's intuitive interface presents quizzing, flashcards, animations and much more to make learning actively engaging.
