It presents the differing psychological perspectives by discussing various relevant paradigms with emphasis on the conceptual approaches and therapeutic interventions that have garnered the most empirical support in research literature.
As a ground-up Canadian text, it features indigenous case studies, legal and ethical issues, prevention programs, and ground-breaking research, as well as the history of abnormal psychology in this country.
Features Abnormal Psychology: Perspectives offers a different approach from many of the abnormal psychology texts that are out there: Canadian content, from the ground up. Not just an adaptation of an American text, Abnormal Psychology: Perspectives was written entirely by Canadian authors with Canadian students in mind.
Our universal health care system and relatively high level of secondary education in Canada have resulted in mental health issues that are unique in North America, and they are reflected in this text. As well, a large number of important issues—legal cases, laws governing therapists, ethical issues, prevention programs, ground-breaking research, even the history of abnormal psychology in this country—are considered from the perspective of people who will be studying, living, and working in Canada.
Chapter 19 Mental Disorder and the Law , for example, covers the topic most requested by Canadian instructors tired of having to supplement texts that discuss only the American situation. Each chapter also highlights many of the important contributions that Canadian researchers have made to the understanding and treatment of psychopathology.
Expert contributors. One of the advantages of a contributed abnormal psychology text is that each disorder chapter can be written by experts in that field, ensuring that the research discussed and the approach taken in each chapter are as accurate and up to date as possible.
The panoply of well-known and highly respected contributors to this volume speaks for itself. A different approach. The organization of the text has been fine-tuned to reflect the emerging importance of several areas of abnormal psychology. For example, an entire chapter is devoted to prevention and mental health promotion in the community because no matter how adept we become at diagnosing and treating mental disorders, their incidence will never decrease without programs designed to prevent them from occurring in the first place.
The chapters in this text provide an excellent flow that we believe progresses well, from general historical and conceptual issues, to an overview of issues related to diagnosis and assessment, to a detailed review of specific disorders, to important issues in the field - such as mental disorders and aging, the efficacy of psychological interventions, prevention of disorders and promotion of mental health, and legal and ethical issues in mental health.
Learning Objectives. Each chapter opens with a set of learning objectives. These learning objectives focus on student performance. Each chapter begins with a statement about what the student should be able to learn. We believe that this new feature will better allow students to absorb, reflect on, and integrate the course material. Throughout each chapter is a series of critical thinking questions positioned within the text so that students can stop and think about the content of the chapter before moving on.
Each of these critical thinking questions links to one of the learning objectives identified at the beginning of the chapter, providing students with an excellent way to absorb, integrate, and apply the material.
The questions help promote in-class discussions and small group work. Cases are, without a doubt, what students find most fascinating about abnormal psychology. Each chapter of this text opens with a case or cases designed to engage student interest. Subsequent cases or clinical examples appear throughout the remainder of the chapter, highlighted in the design by a box, to illustrate nuances between related disorders. Clinical examples are used to illustrate the discussion wherever possible.
Applied Clinical Cases. In addition to the cases that open each chapter, Applied Clinical Cases focus on celebrities or other well-known people.
These interesting case examples serve to bring to life some of the concepts outlined in the text.
