Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology brings the field of abnormal psychology to life for readers with its rare combination of readability, humor, and strong scholarship. Readers gain a greater sense of what the person experiences and how he or she reacts to the diverse factors studied in psychopathology as they apply principles of abnormal psychology to these cases. To more fully understand the nature of the disorder, each case in this book contains the full background material relevant to etiological, diagnostic, and therapeutic considerations. Also, significant family and social history data are presented to give a clear picture of how specific behavior patterns were generated and maintained.
