Publisher Comments:

In the new Fourth Edition, Martin E. P. Seligman and new coauthor Elaine F. Walker once again establish as a visionary text with a new integrative approach that explores the interactions between the psychological and biological influences on human behavior. In addition to nearly 1,800 new references, the Fourth Edition highlights important new trends in the field, from the explosion in biological and neuroscience research, to new life-span developmental theories, to the challenges confronted by scientists and clinicians working in the field, to the impact of psychological disorders on patients, their families, and society.

Synopsis:

When first published in 1984, won widespread support and hundreds of adoptions for its innovative approach, which highlighted the psychological theories and treatments that best fit each disorder.

Synopsis:

Completely revised for the new edition, this highly useful study aid includes a general guide to the reading, multiple-choice and fill-in-the blank questions, and an examination of key chapter themes.

Synopsis:

This new casebook has fifteen chapters covering all the major facets of the field. It is designed to provide students with deeper analysis of topics typically mentioned only briefly in abnormal psychology textbooks. Each chapter includes four readings that have been culled from diverse sources to address a wide array of classic and contemporary topics in psychopathology. Each reading has been edited carefully to provide students with succinct coverage of key ideas, and each is introduced by the editors and supplemented with suggested readings.
