Format: Hardcover
In a recent review of abnormal psychology textbooks (Wilgus et al. 2015 http://dx.doi.org/10.1037/tra0000049 ), edition 6 of Barlow and Durand’s book received very poor rankings for its coverage of the link between child maltreatment and psychological disorders. Among all the books, theirs was the only abnormal textbook reviewed that favorably discussed the False Memory Syndrome Foundation (FMSF), which Barlow and Durand describe as an organization seeking to educate the public and professionals about “false memories” of child abuse. Barlow and Durand fail to include research that shows that “recovered memories” of childhood abuse are as likely to be accurate as are child abuse memories that have always been remembered. Students who read this book are going to get only one side of the debate about memories of child abuse. They will not learn that child abuse has been repeatedly shown to be linked to over a dozen psychiatric disorders. Educational textbooks should be more balanced than what Barlow and Durand offers its readers!

This is the 3rd edition of this book I have had to get. Using this book in my BA program, MA program, and now my PsyD program, and I swear by it. It offers up-to-date research and presents the material in the simplest form possible for the learning clinician. I swear by any Durand & Barlow text/product. Highly recommend.

Format: Hardcover
Educating new therapists is a very large task. Ensuring that the most recent research is available in a simply digested in a form psychology student can integrate and shortly apply into practice is of paramount importance. This field is changing at a rapid pace especially in the area of trauma and brain development. Unfortunately, the author failed to stay current. Therapists are expected to be prepared to hit the ground running working with complex cases often involving the impact of childhood trauma. This book would not serve those new therapists well in preparation of this task.

Format: Hardcover
This textbook seems remarkably out of date, given what we've learned in the past several years about the long-term impact of trauma for children. Where, for example, is the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study? Where's the research showing that recovered memories of childhood trauma are as accurate as those continuously recalled? Or the evidence showing that those with dissociative disorders have experienced childhood trauma? Let's hope that students assigned this book will be assigned current readings.

They are also sadly lacking in evidence or content related to effects of childhood trauma - and nothing about dissociation. But, none of them actually endorse the FMSF - that is unbelievable!!
