Psychopathology 2e - Research, Assessment and Treatment in Clinical Psychology (EHEP003162) cover image

Description

Psychopathology has been designed to provide students with a comprehensive coverage of both psychopathology and clinical practice, including extensive treatment techniques for a range of mental health issues. The text is designed to be accessible to students at a range of different learning levels, from first year undergraduates to post-graduate researchers and those undergoing clinical training.

Psychopathology is primarily evidence and research based, with coverage of relevant research from as recently as 2013, making it useful to researchers as well as clinicians. The emphasis in the book is on providing students with a real insight into the nature and experience of mental health problems, both through the written coverage and by providing a range of video material covering personal accounts of mental health problems. 



The text is integrated with a wide variety of teaching and learning features that will enable facilitators to teach more effectively, and students to learn more comprehensively. Many of these features have been updated for the new edition and new material has been included to reflect the changes in DSM-5. Features include Focus Points that discuss contentious or topical issues in detail, Research Methods boxes showing how clinical psychologists do research on psychopathology, and Case Histories detailing a range of mental health problems.

Online resources

An all new student website is available at www.wiley-psychopathology.com. The website houses a huge variety of new digital material  including more than 50 instructional and supplementary videos covering descriptions of symptoms and aetiologies, examples of diagnosis and diagnostic interviews, recounted personal experiences of people with mental health problems, and discussions and examples of treatment. The site also contains hundreds of new student quizzes, as well as revision flashcards, student learning activities, discussion topics, lists of relevant journal articles (many of which provide free links to relevant articles published in Wiley Blackwell journals), and topics for discussion related to clinical research and clinical practice.  A fully updated lecturer test bank has also been developed including over 1,000 questions, as well as suggested essay questions and these can be accessed by instructors on our lecturer book companion site.

New To This Edition

The new edition of Psychopathology has been updated to include full coverage of DSM-5 diagnostic criteria and their implications, and all disorder chapters describe and discuss the impact of DSM-5 on the diagnostic criteria for mental health problems. Additionally, the text has been updated to include an entirely new chapter on Clinical Practice, which covers the roles of mental health professionals, service provision, and the role and training of clinical psychologists, including their key capabilities and competences. New material has been added on topics such as:

  • the history of psychopathology
  • mental health and stigma
  • sociocultural and ethic factors in psychopathology
  • CBT and the most recent developments in the third wave of CBT
  • How to conduct meta-analyses and systematic reviews
  • A discussion of the IAPT programme

In the disorder chapters, discussions of bipolar disorder, deliberate self-harm, and psychosis-related phenomena and cognitive decision-making processes have all been expanded. In additional, the most recent research on genetics, epigenetics and neuroscience has been included, along with some explanatory sections in chapter 1 that describe these types of explanation to the reader. In each of the disorder chapters there are three main themes: description and diagnosis, aetiology and causes, and treatment. In the treatment section students are provided with a real insight into how treatments work in practice by providing detailed examples of the ways in which therapies are constructed and delivered.

Professor Reviews

“Psychopathology  is an extraordinarily well organized and well written introduction to clinical psychology. It is comprehensive and thoughtful, with a balance between clinical and research issues, and between conceptual and empirical matters. The text is didactically attractive and successful in raising the curiosity and interest of students. The second edition is adapted to DSM 5 and promises to remain a superb introduction to the field.” 

Prof. Marcel van den Hout, Utrecht University


“In his second edition, Professor Davey continues his superb coverage of psychopathology and treatment for adult and child mental health, with timely updates of diagnostic criteria and surrounding controversies. The fascinating historical context is complemented by in depth descriptions of psychological and biological bases of psychopathology, with new material on neuroscience and genetics. As with the first edition, the intertwining of clinical vignettes makes his text a delight to read. A new suite of video resources of interviews, treatments and the like further brings the material to life. This text represents the best of our field in knowledge and presentation.”

Michelle G. Craske, UCLA


 “This is an excellent text that is both comprehensive and accessible.  I view it as an essential study aid and of value to practitioners.”

Prof. Jane Ireland, University of Central Lancashire

Julie Burton, Lincoln University


 “This is an excellent new edition and I especially welcome the new chapter on clinical practice. For me this is the standout UK textbook in the field.”

Dr Francis Quinn, Robert Gordon University
