About the book

It's not about "them", it's about all of us.

Abnormal Psychology, 8/e brings both the science and personal aspects of abnormal psychology to life with a focus on evidence-based practice and emerging research. Authors Thomas F. Oltmanns and Robert E. Emery present the most cutting edge information on abnormal psychology by covering methods and treatment in context. Organized around the way students learn, this title helps readers understand the biological, psychological, and social perspectives of abnormal psychology.

The 8th edition has been updated to include DSM-5 information throughout. The authors have integrated DSM-5 into the fabric of every chapter in a thorough, critical way, helping readers think critically about these changes and discuss the pros and cons of the DSM diagnostic systems.
