Show synopsis In its new edition, Comer's Fundamentals of Abnormal Psychology builds on its status as the premier concise introduction to abnormal psychology today. Like no other textbook, it clearly synthesizes theoretical models, research, clinical experiences, therapies, and controversies within the context of social and cultural influences. Like a good classroom lecture, Fundamentals weaves the main text, case studies, quotations, critical thinking questions, margin notes, cultural and gender differences, and other important elements into a cohesive narrative that keeps students engaged. The book's carefully crafted pedagogy and dramatic media tools make the material relevant and accessible to all kinds of students. Comer encourages students to think critically about the science and study of abnormal psychology. But beyond that, his text reveals the humanity behind the study of psychopathology--the impact of psychological dysfunction on those who suffer from it and their families.
