Blaney and Theodore Millon have once again selected the most eminent researchers in abnormal psychology to cover all the major mental disorders, allowing them to discuss notable issues in the various pathologies which are their expertise. This collection exposes readers to exceptional scholarship, a history of psychopathology, the logic of the best approaches to current disorders, and an expert outlook on what future researchers and mental health professionals will be facing in the years to come.

With extensive coverage of personality disorders and issues related to classification and differential diagnosis, this volume will be exceptionally useful for all mental health workers, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers, and as a textbook focused on understanding psychopathology in depth, as well as a valuable guide for graduate psychology students and psychiatric residents.

    It’s a shame this book is a special order. Everyone I have shown the book to, has gone gah-gah (this is a word?) The scholastic and academic quality are consistent with the best of the Oxford Press. The clarity and parsimony of the explication is beautiful. The data are current and insightful. Anyone in clinical practice would benefit from this book. The diagnoses used are those from DSM-IV, but the insight into patient behavior may be timeless. Although as an edited book it is subject to inter-author variability, I found none; rather a consistent voice of compassion for patients, tempered by a scientific mind.

    I must say that the Oxford Textbook of Psychopathology is a great reference. As a student, I have written numerous papers with the help of this textbook.

    This review is from: Oxford Textbook of Psychopathology (Oxford Series in Clinical Psychology) (Hardcover)

    The book starts off dry and dense but very helpful over all in my class. It damages very easy with the slighest little drop but the book contains lots of information that you would have to search multiple sources to find. It is also organized very well and after the first few chapters reading it is a breeze. Pricy but required wrth the investment
