In its consistently well-written and absorbing style, this bestselling text provides students with a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the field of abnormal psychology. In the Eighth edition, Sarason and Sarason systematically employ an interactional framework that incorporates personal variables and situational variables to examine how vulnerability and resilience influence the likelihood of mental disorders and recovery from them. The text explains and contrasts a variety of theoretical perspectives on each type of disorder. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
As an instructor I have used the Sarason's text in its various incarnations for many years now. I find it excellent, both in terms of how comprehensive it is and also in terms of how accessible it is for my intermediate and advanced students.

While the 11th Edition is the most current, it is also the most expensive. I routinely have my students purchase the earlier editions of a text to save themselves some money. Usually the revisions are minor and something I can cover in class.

Even if you're not taking a class in Abnormal Psychology, you can benefit from reading this text on your own.
