Psychological Disorders: A Scientist-Practitioner Approach takes an empathetic look at various psychological conditions, helping you understand that human behaviors are complex and subject to many forces. New co-authors Danae Hudson and Brooke Whisenhunt enliven the text's hallmark scientist-practitioner approach with current perspectives and innovative pedagogy that targets the most common misconceptions about psychological disorders.

The 5th Edition incorporates the newest research from the DSM-5-TR, and emphasizes reducing the stigma of psychological disorders and issues of diversity. New Pseudoscientific Practices: Examining the Evidence features guide you to think critically about a questionable treatment, practice or claim. These features present a 4-step process to help you hone your critical thinking skills and expand your understanding of key disorders and their prescribed treatments.
