In this briefer version of Durand and Barlow’s widely taught text, the authors explain abnormal psychology through their standard-setting integrative approach--the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying the subject. Through this integrative approach, students learn that psychological disorders are rarely caused by a single influence, but rooted in the interaction among multiple factors: biological, psychological, cultural, social, familial, and even political. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogy, and real case profiles--95 percent from the authors’ own case files--provide a realistic context for the scientific findings of the book. In addition, these features ensure that readers never lose sight of the fact that real people are behind the DSM criteria, the theories, and the research. NOW updated with a DSM-5 supplement available on the text website.

Balancing biological, psychological, social, and cultural approaches, the Fourth Canadian Edition of Abnormal Psychology's groundbreaking integrative approach is the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology. The author team--now including Dr. Martin Lalumi�re--continues to blend sophisticated research and an accessible writing style with the most widely recognized method of discussing psychopathology. Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces that contribute to psychopathology. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogical elements, integrated case studies, and superior coverage of the DSM-5 (with insights from author David Barlow, an Advisor to the DSM-5 task force) help lead students to an unparalleled appreciation for the current state of what is a multidimensional and compelling clinical science.
