“This superb book brings to life in a highly accessible way the realities of clinical disorders and clinical practice. The reader cannot fail to be fascinated by the range of symptoms people display and by the ingenious ways in which psychologists have sought to treat them. The range and depth of learning Davey displays is truly impressive.” Chris Brewin, UCL
“Graham Davey has accomplished a feat seldom attempted in the field of psychopathology. He has produced a text of extraordinary depth and breadth and managed to do so in a single voice. In an era of exploding knowledge, multiple-authored texts are far more common. Davey not only tackles the whole of psychopathology himself, but does so with a level of integration of various factors contributing to causation and successful treatment that is difficult to achieve even with teams of authors. All students of psychopathology will benefit.” David H. Barlow, Boston University
“This new book brings together material regarding a range of clinical problems in a lively and engaging manner. The author is an established clinician and researcher in this field and has produced an excellent resource for students at various levels. The chapters are interspersed with sound contemporary clinical theory, which is supported by rich case examples to illustrate the content.” Rudi Dallos, Plymouth University
"Graham Davey has produced a comprehensive and eminently accessible work that provides a rich and unrivalled grounding in the theory and methods of abnormal psychology whilst covering the major diagnostic categories. Unique in its coverage of experimental psychopathology which is blended with clinical psychology it is an indispensable resource for undergraduate students and their teachers. The book is backed by audio-visual resources and links to key published articles making it one of the most useful and informative texts at this level." Adrian Wells, University of Manchester
