Proven Classic Updated to Reflect the DSM-5

The accessible format, overview chapters on broader issues—such as interviewing—that affect all diagnoses, and case study approach provide the ideal support for students to examine and understand how diagnoses are reached and applied.

Updated to reflect the latest neurobiological advancements in psychopathology, this edition follows the same proven chapter structure for the disorder chapters of previous editions to facilitate readers' understanding and learning. Updates include topics such as:

  • The new Schizophrenic Spectrum designation and other psychotic disorders
  • The revised approach to eating disorders
  • Two new chapters reflect the unsettled nature of the DSM-5 for academics and clinicians alike: Chapter 21: Conditions for Further Study and Chapter 22: Alternative DSM-5 Model for Personality Disorders.

Encompassing the most current research in the field, Adult Psychopathology and Diagnosis, Seventh Edition provides a thorough introduction to our current conceptualization of psychopathology and its application in clinical practice, including dimensional and categorical classifications.
