This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Chris Kearney and Tim Trull's ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY AND LIFE: A DIMENSIONAL APPROACH, 3rd Edition provides students with a concise, contemporary, science-based view of psychopathology that emphasizes the individual first. Through consistent pedagogy featuring clinical cases and real first-person narratives, the text illuminates our understanding that abnormal behavior can be viewed along a continuum. By highlighting this widely accepted dimensional view -- which places the behavior of an individual at the forefront of clinical definition, assessment, and treatment -- the text's goal is to foster personal relevance for students and encourage them to become intelligent consumers of mental health information. The book also gives students a comprehensive understanding of the features and epidemiologies, risk factors and prevention, assessment and treatment, and long-term prognosis and associated stigma of mental disorders.
