The numerous examples and case studies from Australia and the Asia-Pacific region will encourage students to consider the real-world application of their studies. Written by a team of locally based, leading experts in their fields, Abnormal Psychology 4e can be relied on for its up-to-date content, and innovative SmartBook technology that adds real value to the learning experience. This is the essential resource for students and instructors alike.
