The text of choice for instructors looking for an innovative, empirically based, and practice-oriented perspective on psychopathology is now in a revised and expanded second edition with 50% new material. The volume presents state-of-the-art information on the disorders most frequently seen in clinical practice, reviewing their etiology, DSM-5 classification, symptoms and clinical features, course, epidemiology, and associated comorbidities. With the goal of integrating science and practice, each chapter also provides substantive therapeutic guidelines derived from the research. Contributors identify underlying principles of change that clinicians can draw on to improve their effectiveness and offer critical guidance for assessment, case formulation, and evidence-based intervention.

New to This Edition

- Chapters on new topics--suicide, sleep difficulties, and sexual dysfunction.

- New chapter on an existing topic: schizophrenia.

- Updated throughout with current theory, findings, and clinical advances.

- Increased attention to transdiagnostic concerns.

Reviews and Endorsements

"The eagerly awaited second edition of this text belongs on the bookshelf of every graduate student, clinician, and researcher interested in the contemporary relation between clinical science and practice. Castonguay, Oltmanns, and Lott have brought together a stellar group of contributors. Indeed, a significant strength of this book is its breadth. This volume goes beyond simple DSM symptom-based descriptions of various forms of psychopathology, reviewing basic research on 'non-symptom' characteristics of disorders--such as social and occupational functioning, emotion dysregulation, and the cultural context in which the aberrant behaviors occur--and discussing implications of this research for evidence-based prevention and treatment. Contemporary transdiagnostic concerns are highlighted in important new chapters on suicidality, sleep difficulties, and sexual problems." - Ian H. Gotlib, PhD, David Starr Jordan Professor, Department of Psychology, Stanford University.

"The editors are the perfect team for a volume that focuses on the integration of clinical science and practice. They have assembled a broad team of experts who address basic research on psychopathology and its translation into evidence-based practice in each chapter. The book provides graduate students with an 'all-in-one' package that will foster their development as clinical scientists." - Joanne Davila, PhD, Department of Psychology, Stony Brook University, State University of New York.

"Outstanding. Most psychopathology texts lean heavily toward either research or clinical practice, but true to its subtitle, this book successfully speaks well to both perspectives. Researchers will find excellent summaries of existing findings along with discussions of important, cutting-edge questions and issues. Clinicians are provided with practical suggestions and guidelines for interventions. Graduate students will find the second edition of this text to be of considerable value to their education and growth, whether as researchers or clinicians." - Thomas A. Widiger, PhD, T. Marshall Hahn Professor of Psychology, University of Kentucky.
