Book Description

"This book provided an invaluable orientation to the grounding theoretical principles of clinical health psychology, how this knowledge can be applied by psychologists in healthcare settings, particular assessment and intervention approaches and issues associated with working with patients in healthcare settings ... I would highly recommend this as a key text for clinical psychology trainees and postgraduates working or researching in medical settings across the lifespan, both as a general orientation tool and a resource to refer to with reference to specific presenting issues.
Fleur-Michelle Coiffait, Doctoral student, University of Edinburgh, UK

"The tone of this volume is well pitched; it is written in clear English yet without being over-simplified. New vocabulary is collated into ‘key terms’ boxes for easy reference at the end of the chapter – a useful device for the new student. Also proffered at chapter end are ‘For Discussion’ boxes, encouraging the reader to critically assess and compare the contents of the chapter, along with useful suggestions for further reading. With a good level of detail without swamping the reader, this volume is an excellent introduction to students of abnormal psychology."
Hayley Burgess, Psychology Graduate

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 23 Sep 2012
    By B.
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Having applied for a Clinical Psychology MSc I was advised to buy this book to prepare for the MSc. The book is an excellent introduction to Clinical and Abnormal Psychology as it explains in sections the different theories and therapies used to treat mental health problems. The book begins by taking you through the various approaches to treatment such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. The rest of the book is divided into chapters which explain specific disorders such as depression, schizophrenia and so on.

    Overall I found the book very useful, it is a good introductory textbook.
