Abnormal Psychology: The Science and Treatment of Psychological Disorders consists of a balance and blending of research and clinical application, the use of paradigms as an organizing principle, and involving the learner in the kinds of real-world problem solving engaged in by clinicians and scientists. Students learn that psychopathology is best understood by considering multiple perspectives and that these varying perspectives provide the clearest accounting of the causes of these disorders as well as the best possible treatments.

Through four successful editions, this briefer book uses an approach which promotes learning as an "activity" of the reader - it shows how "active learning" can motivate and excite readers to a deeper understanding of introductory psychology. With balanced and modern treatment of gender and culture, this book encourages readers to develop "critical thinking" skills. It is organized around the SQ4R (survey, question, read, recite, review) method of learning.

Devoid of the often mind-numbing technical "psychobabble" and "medicalbabble" so characteristic of other books on the subject, this collection of abnormal psychology cases uses clear, accessible language and explanations, and a unique case conference format. Each case begins with some background information and, similar to Ellery Queen mysteries, readers are challenged through questions at various points to try and decide what is going on based on the amount of information presented. As each case gradually unfolds, readers are drawn deeper into the case and must keep on reading to discover the case's assessment(s), evaluations, diagnoses, treatment plan(s), possible medications, and prognoses. The book features real cases based on a variety of psychopathologies--all involving patients/clients from a wide variety of cultural, ethnic, racial, religious, social, and socioeconomic backgrounds--and all based on the author's own experiences as a practicing social worker and psychologist.
