Kring, Davison, Neale, and Johnson's Abnormal Psychology sets the standard for clarity, cutting-edge coverage, authoritative content, and clinical emphasis. The authors invite students to examine the many different facets of psychopathology -- to search for clues, follow-up on hunches, and evaluate evidence on the origins of these disorders and the effectiveness of specific interventions.
Now in their new 10th Edition, the authors have also greatly expanded the text's pedagogical features, making it even more student-friendly, engaging, and informative.
"Current trends in the field are well reflected with the sections on genetics, neuroscience, and cognitive science." - Jack Nitschke,University of Wisconsin
"I was particularly impressed by the skill with which the authors were able to discuss complex material in a clear fashion." - Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, Ohio State University
