The text provides the reader with a foundational understanding of a vast range of mental disorders, as well as effective, evidence-based treatments for each. The book presents current scholarly research regarding theories, approaches, strategies, and techniques for working with specific populations of clients with mental and emotional disorders. Additional sections address psychotropic medications and their effectiveness with particular disorders; DSM-5 and ICD-10 (11) and how they interrelate with mental disorders; and ethical, legal, and practical guidelines critical to establishing an effective and meaningful practice. In addition, students are encouraged to reflect upon their motives for becoming a mental health professional, including their personal state of wellness and life adjustments that may be necessary to support their personal practice.
Written to provide fundamental knowledge and encourage mastery of understanding mental disorders and relevant treatment options, Psychopathology is an ideal resource for counselors-in-training as well as practicing mental health professionals.
