Description: For courses in Abnormal Psychology and Psychopathology. Psychology in a Changing World puts a human face on the study of Abnormal Psychology. Within the field of abnormal psychology, research developments continue to sharpen the understanding of abnormal behavior. In Abnormal Psychology in a Changing World, Nevid, Rathus, and Greene endeavor to bring these advances to students in a way that both stimulates interest and makes complex material understandable. More importantly, however, they recognize there is a basic human dimension to the study of abnormal psychology. The approach the authors take is to help students enter the world of people suffering from the range of disorders they encounter in the text. By including many illustrative case examples drawn from the authors' own case experiences and those of other practitioners, an accompanying video casebook of interviews with real people diagnosed with different disorders, and a landmark pedagogical feature of first-person narratives from people struggling with psychological disorders, Abnormal Psychology in a Changing World 7e helps put a human face on the study of abnormal psychology. This text helps students enter the world of people suffering from psychological disorders through the use of first-person narratives (the I feature), many illustrative case examples, a video casebook of interviews with real patients, and fully integrated, original, and interactive pedagogy.
