About the Book

Welcome to the companion website for Understanding Abnormal Psychology by Pamilla Ramsden.

This textbook presents a thorough understanding of abnormal psychology with a focus on the integration of psychology, biology and health. It goes beyond a descriptive overview of clinical disorders to provide a critical appreciation of the multifaceted aspects of mental illness. Each disorder is clearly and succinctly explained with the support of case studies. These examples are then used to introduce the debates surrounding current research, the biology of abnormal disorders and standards of treatment. The bridge between the biological elements of brain functioning and the psychological mechanisms that are responsible for coping and adjustment is thoroughly explored. This valuable consideration of the range of elements involved in the diagnosis and treatment of clinical disorders will provide you with a broad and critical understanding of this complex and fascinating field.

Understanding Abnormal Psychology: Clinical and Biological Perspectives is an essential textbook for undergraduate students taking courses in abnormal or clinical psychology.
