This innovative book encourages readers to see that the multiple forces of causality in mental illness are frequently more important than the rigid definitions of diagnosis. While thoroughly covering the DSM system, the second edition places DMS-IV in a larger context, focusing on six core concepts designed to help them better detail, classify, explain and understand abnormal behavior. In addition, biological explanations and treatments at the beginning of each chapter highlight the growing emphasis on the biological components of psychological disorders.
