Great intro for students of even those just interestin in psychopathology
on 11 June 2010
This textbook is very well structured and cover a wide range of topics within the field of psychopathology from mood disorder to substance abuse and developmental issues. I am using it whilst studying for my degree and its been great. It's very explanatory so even if your not a student you will find it very insightful. Everything is covered from concepts and diagnostics to therapies and concordance issues. What sets it out from some other textbooks is that a majority of case studies and statistic referred to are from UK research. If your studying with the aim to work in the UK as a psychologist this aspect is particularly relevant. A lot of other textbooks that are published in the USA refer to American examples, whereas this gives a better idea of what is going on in the UK. The DVD is great addition too and also provides some career advice as well as case study interviews.
