Abnormal Psychology is designed to be accessible to the student and easy to use for the instructor. Hansell and Damour have streamlined the traditional table of contents of an abnormal psychology text to a fourteen chapter, affordable text without eliminating important material. For example, research methods are discussed throughout the text, social and legal issues are addressed in the chapters where they are most relevant, and treatment methods are covered in every chapter, not in a separate chapter on psychotherapy.
About: Abnormal Psychology by James Hansell and Lisa Damour bridges the gap between the evolving field of abnormal psychology and the current textbook market.
