About This Item

Cengage Learning India, 2015. 5th or later edition. Softcover. New. New edition continues to lead the market with cutting-edge research, including the role of friendship cliques in the etiology of eating disorder and research on mothers with eating disorders who also restrict food intake and their children in Chapter 8 a discussion of one large study that found that almost two thirds of college students in their fourth year had been offered illegal prescription stimulants and 31% used them - usually to improve studying in Chapter 11 and updated research on assessing brain activity (fMRI) in individuals during active episodes of delirium as well as after these episodes in Chapter 15, as well as updated legal rulings on involuntary medication in Chapter 16 Every chapter in the Seventh Edition has been carefully revised to reflect the very latest research studies on psychological disorders, with hundreds of new references appearing for the first time. Unlike texts that take a single-cause, single-treatment approach, Barlow and Durand cover treatment in each chapter. Frequently, a single case is carried throughout the discussion of each disorder, including coverage of treatment issues and outcomes. Case studies featuring real clients are incorporated into the flow of the text, providing a realistic context for the scientific research in the book. These case studies ensure that students never lose sight of the fact that beyond the DSM-5 criteria, the theories, and the research, there are human beings struggling with these disorders. This text features substantial, cutting-edge coverage of prevention. The authors discuss a variety of topics that will pique students`` interest-for example, how to prevent eating disorders, sleep disorders, substance abuse and dependence, suicide, antisocial disorders in children, and more. The authors thoroughly cover cultural and gender factors as they relate to abnormal behavior. Not only is new material highlighted in a "Theme Index" in the Preface, but a description of how cultural beliefs and practices-such as voodoo, mind reading, and speaking in tongues-can lead to misdiagnoses of personality disorders is included in Chapter 12, "Personality Disorders." Four to five "Concept Checks" at the end of every section allow students to apply concepts to particular cases and help them master the material as they move through each chapter. The Seventh Edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect DSM-5. Significant revision reflects the Fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). NEW DSM-5 Supplement by David Barlow and V. Mark Durand summarizes the changes between the DSM-IV-TR and the DSM revision - DSM-5. NEW feature, DSM-5 Controversies, discusses the chapter-related mental disorders in light of the DSM-5 criteria and highlights associated hot-button issues and debates Updated nomenclature to reflect new titles in DSM-5 in Chapter 1. Inclusion of new studies illustrating the psychosocial influence on brain structure and function in general and on neurotransmitter systems specifically in Chapter 2. Update to include "intellectual disability" (instead of mental retardation) which is consistent with DSM-5 and changes within the field in Chapter 3. New descriptions of the organization and structure of DSM-5 along with major changes from DSM-IV, as well as description of methods to coordinate the development of DSM-5 with the forthcoming ICD 11 in Chapter 3. Chapter 5 (Anxiety, Trauma, and Stressor-Related, and Obsessive-Compulsive Related Disorders) reorganized into the three major groups of disorders - two of them new to DSM-5: anxiety disorders, trauma and stressor related disorders, and obsessive-compulsive and related disorders. Discussion of "somatoform disorders" is now somatic symptom and related disorders to reflect DSM changes. Chapter 6 also reorganized and rewritten to reflect the current grouping Printed Pages: 784.
