5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Money 10 Feb. 2007
By Patti Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The case studies selected for use in this book are very interesting and serve as excellent examples for various mental health diagnoses. Up-to-date, cutting edge treatment modalities for each specific disorder are also discussed in the chapters. It is an excellent resource.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very descriptive, aides in understanding of disorders 4 Nov. 2006
By Sara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is very readable, and gives case examples of several different mental disorders with a discussion at the end of each case. It enables the reader to understand aspects of a disorder that he or she might not glean from reading only textbooks. It is an excellent companion to textbooks on abnormal psych or psychopathology. My biggest complaint is the pricetag for such a small book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cases in psychopathology 4 Mar. 2009
By psy major - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a Psychology major at a private four year college and I think this book is great. This book brings real cases for the main psychological disoders such as: GAD, PDA, OCD and schizophrenia (just to name a few). David H. Barlow is a world renowned psychologist and professor of psychology and psychiatry and director of the center for anxiety disorders at Boston University. For each case, the authors include: clinical history, DSM-Iv-TR diagnosis, case formulation using the integrative model, treatment goals and planning, and course of treatment and treatment planning. This book is essential for recognazing symptoms for each disorder and for aquiring skills such as diagnosis. I feel this book is important to undetrtanding the implications of psychological disorders, since it brings each disorder to life.

This book was required reading for one of my graduate classes, and I really enjoyed reading the case studies. The text is readable, and the case studies bring the disorders to life. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this text and am actually keeping it to refer back to.
