Written for graduate students and trainees in mental health, this is the only text to present neurobiology in the context of clinical issues rather than merely focusing on experimental approaches to biological psychology or structuring it along neurological systems. In clear, easily accessible language the text explains how the brain and nervous system are linked to mental disorders. It integrates information from many aspects of neurobiological research, including imaging, neuropsychology, and genetics in order to foster an in-depth understanding of the psychiatric presentation of disorders that mental health professionals encounter in their practices.



To facilitate student learning and clarify the connection between neurobiological foundations and clinical presentation, the text includes case studies, cognitive data, imaging results, genetic testing results, and illustrations. It examines major psychological disorders from behavioral, emotional, biological, cognitive and neurophysiological perspectives as they relate to brain structure and the major systems. Special topic sections highlight ethical, research, and treatment concerns for mental health practitioners. Each chapter concludes with summations and review questions. Written for graduate level students in clinical, counseling, and school psychology programs, the text fulfills APA accreditation requirements for coursework in the biological bases of behavior. While the text's primary aim is to help students understand neurobiological information as an important component of a therapeutic framework, it also concisely addresses micro and macro anatomy as relates to neurobiology. Also included are such supplementary teaching materials as test questions and PowerPoint slides of illustrations.
