Overview

A comprehensive overview of abnormal psychology, with DSM-5 coverage throughout
REVEL™ for Abnormal Psychology provides a comprehensive and engaging introduction to the primary psychological disorders studied within the discipline. Maintaining a focus on the individuals at the heart of the study of abnormal psychology, the authors employ a biopsychosocial approach that helps students achieve an understanding of the holistic context in which abnormalities of behavior occur. In addition to the contributions of new co-author Matthew Nock, REVEL for the Seventeenth Edition has been extensively updated to reflect DSM-5 diagnostic categories, classifications, and criteria.

REVEL is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, REVEL replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, REVEL is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
