Using a clear and engaging writing style that is accessible "without" compromising rigor, this introduction to abnormal behavior offers research-based and comprehensive coverage and a "fully-integrated" approach that interweaves sociocultural/diversity issues, various biopsychosocial theoretical perspectives, and multimedia content throughout. It includes case examples drawn from the authors' own case files and those of noted authorities in the field, and an accompanying CD includes 20 video case vignettes featuring interviews with patients, clinicians, and researchers. A series of self-assessments, with immediate scoring and feedback, encourages readers to reflect upon and think critically about controversial issues, and to evaluate their own attitudes and behavior patterns.
