The third edition of "Comprehensive Handbook of Psychopathology" provides in-depth coverage of theoretical, research, and clinical positions in psychopathology. Extensively revised and updated, this new edition outlines a highly improved classification scheme based on the "DSM IV". It includes two new chapters on schizophrenia that reflect renewed interest in this topic. It puts new emphasis on cultural and developmental issues. It contains increased coverage of the overlap of medicine and abnormal behavior. Furnishing both empirical and research data useful to graduate students and practicing clinicians in the mental health profession, particularly clinical psychology, psychiatry, psychiatric nursing, and social work, this handbook is an ideal reference source.
