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 book presents a clear and in-depth account of abnormal psychology. It focuses on both clinical descriptions, using illustrative case studies at the beginning of each section, and on the implications of the major theoretical perspectives and relevant empirical evidence for clinical treatment. It provides a very readable and up-to-date review of topics including childhood behaviour disorders, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, personality disorders and models of abnormal behaviour. Alan Carr illustrates a scientific approach to the understanding of these aspects of abnormal psychology. Both the content and style of this book will help students understand a complex area of psychology.

Understanding Abnormal Psychology provides a thorough understanding of abnormal psychology with a focus on the integration of psychology, biology and health. It goes beyond a descriptive overview of clinical disorders to provide a critical appreciation of the multifaceted aspects of mental illness. Each disorder is clearly and succinctly explained with the support of case studies. These examples are then used to introduce the debates surrounding current research, the biology of abnormal disorders and standards of treatment. The bridge between the biological elements of brain functioning and the psychological mechanisms that are responsible for coping and adjustment is thoroughly explored. This valuable consideration of the range of elements involved in the diagnosis and treatment of clinical disorders will provide you with a broad and critical understanding of this complex and fascinating field. Visit the companion website at www.sagepub.co.uk/ramsden with a number of useful features for students, including a flipcard glossary of key terms from the textbook and a test bank of interactive self-assessment multiple-choice questions.
