  • Every chapter in the eighth edition has been carefully revised to reflect the very latest research studies on psychological disorders, with hundreds of new references appearing for the first time.
  • Unlike texts that take a linear single-cause, single-treatment approach, Barlow, Durand, and Hofmann integrate the contributions of biological, psychological, social, and cultural factors into descriptions of the etiology and treatment of psychopathology. Frequently, a single case is carried throughout the discussion of each disorder, including coverage of treatment issues and outcomes.
  • Case studies featuring real clients are incorporated into the flow of the text, providing a realistic context for the scientific research in the book. These case studies ensure that students never lose sight of the fact that beyond diagnostic criteria, theory, and research, there are human beings struggling with these disorders.
  • This text features substantial, cutting-edge coverage of prevention. The authors discuss a variety of topics that will pique students' interest -- for example, how to prevent eating disorders, sleep disorders, substance abuse and dependence, suicide, antisocial disorders in children, and more.
  • The authors thoroughly cover cultural and gender factors as they relate to abnormal behavior. For example, an updated discussion of services for individuals with gender dysphoria is included in Chapter 10, "Sexual Dysfunctions, Paraphilic Disorders, and Gender Dysphoria."
  • Four to five "Concept Checks" at the end of every section allow students to apply concepts to particular cases and help them master the material as they move through each chapter.
  • "Student Learning Outcomes" open each chapter, assisting instructors in accurately assessing and mapping questions throughout the chapter. The outcomes are mapped to the core APA goals (2012) and are integrated throughout the instructor resources and testing program.
