Features and Benefits

  • Students progress through the main topics for every chapter chapter, first progressing through a reading, exercises, and a concept check quiz.
  • Case Studies and Video Cases allow students to interact with holistic, three-dimensional portraits of individuals dealing with psychopathologies, and a Post-Test concludes each chapter.
  • Control what content students see and when they see it with a learning path that can be used as-is or matched to your syllabus exactly.
  • Create a unique learning path of relevant readings, multimedia and activities that move students up the learning taxonomy from basic knowledge and comprehension to analysis, application and critical thinking.

  • Use powerful analytics and reports that provide a snapshot of class progress, time in course, engagement and completion.
  • Empower students with the information to know where they stand at all times – both individually and compared to the highest performers in class.
