Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focused, fresh, and engaging, this text captures student interest and facilitates comprehension through an integrated media program and the widespread use of current and highly relevant clinical case studies. The fifth edition Media Update includes Faces Interactive case studies directly in the text, linking information on the disorders in the text to our unique Faces Interactive Online. The text maintains the integrative approach to treatment using the biopsychosocial model, the emphasis on cases, and the succinct coverage that have been the foundations of the text's success. It also features a focused approach, with the goal of presenting only the most up-to-date and relevant research and clinical material.
