Adult Psychopathology and Diagnosis 7th Edition PDF
3.94 MB PDF
This is the seventh edition of Adult Psychopathology and Diagnosis and the second that does not bear Samuel M. Turner’s name due to his untimely passing. His spirit is here, however, and we again dedicate this volume to him.
Since publication of the previous edition, the DSM-5 has been released and new data continue to emerge that force us to continuously reconsider how we approach and conceptualize psychological disorders. Psychopathology is a vibrant field and continuing discoveries regarding the roles of genetics, neurobiology, and behavior require that we continue to update this volume for students and professionals alike. We believe that our eminent authors have captured both major changes and more nuanced findings in their respective chapters.
The seventh edition contains 20 chapters divided into two parts (Part I: Overview; Part II: Specific Disorders). Part I has four chapters by experts in the field: Chapter 1: Mental Disorders as Discrete Clinical Conditions: Dimensional Versus Categorical Classification; Chapter 2: The Problem of Dual Diagnosis; Chapter 3: Structured and Semistructured Interviews for Differential Diagnosis: Fundamentals, Applications, and Features; and Chapter 4: Impact of Race, Ethnicity, and Culture on the Expression and Assessment of Psychopathology.
Part II on Specific Disorders includes 16 chapters that cover many of the diagnostic entities and problems seen in daily clinical work by our colleagues in hospitals, clinics, and private practice. Approximately 30% of the chapters have new authors for this edition. Additionally, as a testament to the vibrancy of the field of psychopathology, the original anxiety disorders chapter has now been split into three chapters (Chapter 8: Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Specific Phobias; Chapter 9: Obsessive- Compulsive and Related Disorders; and Chapter 10: Trauma and Stress-Related Disorders: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Acute Stress Disorder, and Adjustment Disorders) in order to adequately address the extensive work in these areas and changes in DSM-5.
To the extent possible, we have asked our gracious contributors to follow a standard format. Exceptions, of course, were granted as dictated by the data inherent in each chapter. Generally, however, each chapter has a description of the disorder, a case study, and material documenting epidemiology, clinical picture, course and prognosis, diagnostic considerations, psychological and biological assessment, and etiological considerations. Each chapter also contains a summary.
Many individuals have contributed to the seventh edition of this book. First, we thank our experts, who agreed to share their vast knowledge about their areas of study. And as always, we thank Patricia Rossi and her exceptionally professional staff at John Wiley & Sons, for understanding the importance of this area in clinical psychology.
