Ethan Gorenstein is an experienced, practicing clinician at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York, who has had hands-on experience with cases such as these and brings his insight into every case by presenting the background, symptoms, treatments, results and discussion of issues pertinent to each case; providing a detailed and comprehensive study into the disorder itself, as well as the treatment; creating a mechanism for teaching psychotherapy and treatment together; and organizing and presenting each case to build upon the practical application of psychological principles. As well as being a useful tool for any student of Abnormal Psychology, this casebook will be of interest to any academic, practitioner or general reader in psychology.

Book Description :

In recent years psychology has considerably expanded and en riched its relations with medical practice, first and foremost with psychiatry. This orientation toward experimental abnormal psy chology has been closely tied to the practical tasks of psychiatry: differential diagnosis, establishment of the structure and extent of impairment, and the dynamics of mental disorders as affected by treatment, etc. Experimental abnormal psychology has been no less important for the theoretical problems of psychology and psychiatry. The study of pathological changes in mental processes helps in dealing with questions about the structure and formation of mental activity. The research findings of abnormal psychology also have important implications for overcoming biologizing tendencies in the interpre tation of human psychology. The present book does not try to provide an exhaustive expo sition of all divisions of abnormal psychology. It introduces the reader only to those problems which at the present time seem to be best worked out experimentally: the breakdown of intellectual capacity, thought disorders, the methodology of setting up an ex periment in the psychiatric clinic, and certain questions relating to motivational disturbances and psychological growth and decay. Some rewritten sections from the author's earlier book, "The Pathology of Thinking," have been included. v vi FOREWORD The present volume is intended for psychology students, for psycholOgists, and for physicians working in psychiatry.

This work provides a workable base for the understanding of basic concepts of abnormal behaviour and abnormal psychology. Starting with the concept, nature and background of abnormal behaviour and abnormal psychology, it takes up the types of abnormalities and disorders of human behaviour and suggests possible treatment by combining physical as well as socio-psychological therapeutic measures. Written in a simple but well organised style, it will prove useful not only to students of abnormal psychology and mental health of the graduate and post-graduate courses, but also to parents and teachers in understanding and improving their own mental health as well as that of people whose welfare is entrusted to them.

Book Description :

"Most textbooks on abnormal psychology include short descriptions of actual clinical cases. However, those presentations are necessarily brief and too fragmented for students to gain a clear understanding of the unique complexities of a person's troubledlife. Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology, Ninth Edition takes mental disorders from the realm of theory into the complex reality of human lives. This casebook presents comprehensive coverage of 23 high interest cases that include topics such as eating disorders, gender identity disorder, borderline personality, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Each study (1) provides detailed descriptions of a range of clinical problems, (2) illustrates some of the ways in which these problems can be viewed and treated, and (3) discusses some of the evidence that is available concerning the prevalence and causes of the disorders in question"--
