“The editors have honored us with a reprise of their outstanding 4th edition of this textbook with chapters by almost all of the earlier, very distinguished, experts. Attention to older adults and clinical judgment is principally noteworthy, as is the attention to the present ICD and DSM diagnostic systems. It is brief, readily supplemented, and will not overpower students with lengthy and dense material. Psychopathology 5e is a gem.” — Barry A. Edelstein, Ph.D., Eberly Family Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology, West Virginia University, USA
“As with prior editions, this volume is highly readable, scholarly, well-organized, and comprehensive. Maddux and Winstead have again produced essential work for graduate-level education in understanding and treating mental illness. Written by praised experts in that particular topic, each chapter follows the same format which makes the material accessible to both instructors and students alike. More importantly, the authors present the latest empirical work guiding research, assessments, and interventions. Updated to show both revisions to the DSM and advancements in the field, this is a vital textbook for training future mental health professionals.” — Stephen M. Saunders, Ph.D., Professor and Chairperson, Department of Psychology, Marquette University
