"Abnormal Psychology 3rd Edition", by an award-winning teacher and noted researcher Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, integrates cutting-edge research with a compassionate view of the lives of people with mental disorders. Dr Nolen-Hoeksema captures the excitement of the new advances in knowledge and in treatment of psychopathology, developing in students a true enthusiasm and appreciation of research. She also highlights personal experiences of people with mental disorders, in order to give students exposure to their suffering and courage. This is the first text that successfully presents research in a way that both is teachable and gives a voice to those struggling with mental illness. This combination of science and humanity allows students to use the research to understand their own experiences and the experiences of others.
