"Abnormal Psychology "by Sue, Sue, and Sue was the first text in its field to present a thoroughly integrated multicultural perspective; the Eighth Edition offers integration of multicultural models and the most extensive coverage available. This program provides students with an understanding of abnormal behavior as both a scientific and a clinical field, while offering insight into the tools used by mental health professionals to study and treat disorders. The text combines a student-friendly approach to understanding abnormal psychology with scholarship of the highest quality. This edition includes thoroughly updated research and case studies, and is accompanied by a comprehensive support package for both instructors and students."Mental Health & Society" boxes address controversial issues with wide implications for our society. They are intended to stimulate critical thinking, evoke alternative views, provoke discussion, and draw students into issues that help them better explore the wider meaning of abnormal behavior in our society."Critical Thinking" boxes provide factual evidence and thought-provoking questions that raise key issues in research, examine widely held assumptions about abnormal behavior, or challenge the student's own understanding of the text material.A web icon on many of the boxes indicates that there is a corresponding interactive exercise on the student web site.Additional features includes "Myth vs. Reality" discussions, "Case Studies and Examples," "Chapter-opening Outlines" and "Focus Questions," and integrated "Chapter Summaries" keyed to the "Focus Questions."
