Dr. Hooley has a long-standing interest in psychosocial predictors of psychiatric relapse in patients with severe psychopathology such as schizophrenia and depression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aaron M. Vedock 17 Sep 2013
By Aaron M. Vedock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is IMHO, hands-down the authoritative text on Abnormal Psychology today. We used the 11th edition in my graduate school psychopathology, and I recently purchased this updated edition, with all of the DSM-V changes added. Looking forward to re-reading this text once again. It serves as a "go-to" reference, which I keep on my office desk at all times. One down-side, they no longer publish the "study guide" that accompanied previous editions, wish they would bring that back in future editions.
