Product description

Review

"The editors have graced us with a reprise of their outstanding 4th edition of this textbook with chapters by almost all of the previous, very distinguished, experts. Attention to older adults and clinical judgment is particularly noteworthy, as is the attention to the current ICD and DSM diagnostic systems. It is concise, readily supplemented, and will not overwhelm students with dense and lengthy material. The book is a gem."-Barry A. Edelstein, PhD, Eberly Family Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology, West Virginia University, USA

"As with previous editions, this volume is highly readable, well-organized, scholarly and comprehensive. Maddux and Winstead have again produced an indispensable work for graduate-level education in understanding and treating mental illness. Written by acclaimed experts in that particular topic, each chapter follows a similar format which makes the material accessible to both students and instructors alike. More importantly, the authors present the up-to-date empirical work guiding research, assessments and interventions. Updated to reflect both revisions to the DSM and advancements in the field, this is an essential textbook for training future mental health professionals."-Stephen M. Saunders, PhD, Professor and Chairperson, Department of Psychology, Marquette University

Praise for previous editions


"The challenge of not only describing, but also starting to explain, psychopathology is a daunting one, but

Psychopathology does a superb job…Students’ understanding and appreciation for the key issues in psychopathology etiology, assessment, intervention and research will increase tremendously by reading this text."-Bethany Teachman, PhD, Director, Program for Anxiety, Cognition and Treatment; Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia, USA

"This book will be of great value to mental health professionals across career stages…For all readers, the book's clarity and insight on the nature of psychopathology itself, on clinical assessment, on cultural dimensions, and more, will provide an invaluable resource."

-Thomas Joiner, PhD, Author of Lonely at the Top and Why People Die by Suicide

"This textbook will be of great value to all students and health professionals in the field of psychology and psychiatry as it gives them access to the main issues of contemporary psychopathology and to updated data about specific disorders throughout the life-span."-Diane Purper Ouakil, European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

My major scholarly interest is the interface of social, clinical, and health psychology, which is concerned with the ways that theory and research from social psychology can help us understand psychological adjustment, psychological disorders, and health-related behavior. My professional mission is to enhance well-being around the world through the promotion of psychological science.

I earned my Ph.D in clinical psychology (with a minor in social psychology) from the University of Alabama in 1981. I am the former director of the clinical doctoral program at George Mason and former editor of the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology.
