The third edition of "Comprehensive Handbook of Psychopathology" provides comprehensive coverage of theoretical, research, and clinical positions in psychopathology. Extensively revised and updated, this edition: outlines a highly improved classification scheme based on DSM IV; includes two new chapters on schizophrenia which reflect renewed interest in this topic, particularly from a biological basis; puts new emphasis on cultural and developmental issues; and contains increased coverage of the overlap of medicine and abnormal behaviour. With emphasis on empirical and research data that should be useful to graduate students and practising clinicians in the mental health profession, particularly clinical psychology, psychiatry, psychiatric nursing, and social work, this handbook is an ideal reference source.

From reviews of previous editions: 'It will be an important reference book for many years to come.' Behavior Research and Therapy 'With the aid of some 60 contributors the editors have prepared a comprehensive review of 'current clinical descriptions, research, and theories of psychopathology' for use by all professionals active in care-giving or research in mental health.' Psychological Reports 'Adams and Sutker have assembled an impressive and wide-ranging volume ... recommended strongly to researchers, to clinicians, and to university students.' Contemporary Psychology 'A fine review of clinical descriptions research, and theories of psychopathology. The historical and descriptive overviews of diagnostic categories are excellent.' Choice 'Voluminous references follow each chapter, constituting a monument to the assiduity and scholarship of the authors; ... a valuable addition to the libraries of the mental health professional, the lecturer, and the advanced student.' Child and Family Behavior Therapy
