Psychopathology: History, Diagnosis and Empirical Foundations 3rd Edition, (PDF) offers unique, state-of-the-art coverage of adult psychopathology as categorical, evidence-based, and continuously developing. Comprehensive coverage includes a detailed examination of DSM disorders, including description, epidemiology, consequences, prevalence, neurobiological and translational research, treatment, and more, with every chapter written by experts in the field. Mapped to the DSM-5, each chapter features clinical case examples that illustrate how psychopathology and assessment influence treatment.
