"Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology focuses on modern, empirically-based cases and treatments of the most common psychological disorders. Actual cases are used to demonstrate how the abstract principles of psychology apply to real life. Ethan Gorenstein is an experienced, practicing clinician at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York, who has had hands-on experience with cases such as these and brings his insight into every case by presenting the background, symptoms, treatments, results and discussion of issues pertinent to each case; providing a detailed and comprehensive study into the disorder itself, as well as the treatment; creating a mechanism for teaching psychotherapy and treatment together; and organizing and presenting each case to build upon the practical application of psychological principles." "As well as being a useful tool for any student of Abnormal Psychology, this casebook will be of interest to any academic, practitioner or general reader in psychology."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
