The Wiley Advantage

Currency: Excels in its integration of current research. Davison, Blankstein and Flett include one of the largest and most current collections of international and Canadian references of any abnormal psychology text.

Focus on Discovery boxes provide interesting, in-depth discussions of specialized topics related to the text material. These allow students to deepen their understanding and strengthen their analysis skills.

The Canadian Clinical Focus boxes examine both specific clinics in various regions of Canada and clinical intervention issues.

Updated Cases: Each revision offers many new cases that illustrate specific disorders.
Approach: Follows the widely praised scientific clinical approach that balances clinical and empirical/experimental coverage.

Critical Thinking: Analyzes research, rather than simply citing it, encouraging students to think critically about what they are learning and to develop a framework for evaluating research evidence.

Topically Innovative: Provides the most comprehensive coverage of aging available (Chapter 16), an important topic first pioneered by an earlier edition of the text. Full chapter on outcomes and issues in psychological intervention
