Balancing biological, psychological, social, and cultural approaches, David Barlow and V. Mark Durand’s groundbreaking integrative approach is the most modern, scientifically valid method for studying abnormal psychology. In this Sixth Edition of their proven ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY: AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH, Barlow and Durand successfully blend sophisticated research and an accessible writing style with the most widely recognized method of discussing psychopathology. Going beyond simply describing different schools of thought on psychological disorders, the authors explore the interactions of the various forces that contribute to psychopathology. A conversational writing style, consistent pedagogical elements, integrated case studies (95 percent from the authors’ own files), video clips of clients, and additional study tools make this text the most complete learning resource available. For instructors, an Instructor’s Resource Manual, Test Bank, and a wide selection of videos are available to use when teaching the course.

Since the first edition of this book appeared, professors have praised Weiten's scholarship as exemplary and the accessibility of his prose as unparalleled. PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS redefined the way Introductory Psychology is taught by using integrative themes to develop the connections among different areas of psychological research. In this revitalized and thoroughly updated Fifth Edition, not only has Weiten continued to refine and improve the scholarship, outstanding art program, and readability of the text, but he has also added a new critical thinking feature to each chapter. This critical thinking feature is designed to encourage students to examine the process of effective questioning and analysis of key issues in psychology. Using integrative themes to emphasize connections among different areas of research in psychology, and built from the ground up using original sources, Weiten challenges students to grapple with the big issues and tough questions while mastering the basic concepts of psychology. Throughout the Fifth Edition, Weiten emphasizes the unity in psychology's intellectual heritage (the themes), as well as psychology's immense diversity (the variations). Offering the strongest integration of technology aids for students and instructors, Weiten's text includes icon links to the innovative PSYK.TREK CD-ROM, providing students with a powerful way to explore psychological concepts through experiments, interactivities, animation, audio, video, and printable quizzing.

In den letzten Jahren hat sich in den Neurowissenschaften eine radikale Umwälzung vollzogen. Die neuen Erkenntnisse über das Zusammenspiel von Körper und Geist in eine "Medizin der Emotionen" zu überführen, ist das Ziel des Neurologen und Psychiaters David Servan-Schreiber. Stress, Angst und Depression sind heilbar - und zwar ohne Medikamente und jahrelange Psychotherapie. Im Inneren des Gehirns befindet sich ein "emotionales Gehirn", das alle Funktionen kontrolliert, die unser psychisches Wohlbefinden beeinflussen, und einen Großteil der Körperfunktionen wie Herz, Blutdruck, Hormone, das Verdauungs- und Immunsystem dazu. Ist das System im Gleichklang, wachsen uns ungeahnte Kräfte zu; gerät es aus der Balance, sind Stress, Ängste und Depressionen die Folge. Durch bestimmte Methoden, die auf den Körper einwirken, lassen sich die Mechanismen der Selbstheilung nutzen, über die das emotionale Gehirn verfügt.
