Abnormal Psychology: An Anthology of Contemporary Articles
Check out my most recent book project:
Abnormal Psychology: An Anthology of Contemporary Articles is a collection of current readings covering the major diagnostic classifications of psychopathology. The text is written for collegiate programs that teach about abnormal behaviors. Students will learn effectively from the selected readings, which expose them to authentic research and factual case studies.
Articles selected for the anthology illustrate people from Asian, Canadian, European, Caribbean, Hispanic, and Aboriginal cultures, as well as mainstream American ethnic groups. The text begins with articles discussing the stigma attached to mental illness, and parent-reported reasons for unmet mental health needs in children. Subsequent chapters deal with the full spectrum of disorders including:
- Childhood Disorders
- Personality Disorders
- Sexual Paraphilias and Gender Issues
- Depressive and Bipolar Disorders
- Substance Use and Addiction
- Somatic Symptom Disorders
- The Schizophrenia Spectrum
- Neurocognitive Disorders
Abnormal Psychology can be used as a primary textbook. It is also a valuable supplemental text for courses in counseling, education, nursing, psychology, pharmacology, sociology and social work.
