Abnormal Psychology free pdf Real Science. Real Life. Presents a balanced Scientist - Practitioner - Educator approach to understanding Abnormal Psychology. Several features will distinguish this text from currently available textbooks. First, the base of abnormal psychology rests on knowledge generated through scientific studies and clinical practice. This text will emphasize this rich blend throughout. Second, it has become increasingly clear that most forms of adult abnormal behavior either begin in childhood or have childhood precursors. In this text, we will highlight what is known about the developmental trajectory of each condition. Third, we will integrate biological findings with findings from social and behavioral sciences in order to foster the perspective that abnormal behavior is complex and subject to many different forces, and highlight how these variables often interact in a reciprocal fashion. Fourth, scientific findings with respect to race and gender will be discussed with respect to each condition. This will include a discussion of prevalence, differences in symptom manifestation, and any known etiological differences. Importantly, an effort will be made to "bring to life" the nature of these conditions by providing vivid clinical descriptions. In addition to short descriptions that will be used liberally throughout each chapter, a fully integrated case study will be presented at the end of each chapter, again illustrating the interplay of biological, psychosocial and emotional factors.
