  • Rebuilt from the ground up, instructor supplements accompanying the 9th edition feature engaging, high-quality resources designed to support your teaching efforts while promoting discussion with and among students.

  • While other texts take a linear single-cause, single-treatment approach, Barlow, Durand and Hofmann integrate the contributions of biological, psychological, social and cultural factors into descriptions of the etiology and treatment of psychopathology. Frequently, a single case is carried throughout the discussion of each disorder, including coverage of treatment issues and outcomes.

  • Case studies featuring actual clients are incorporated into the flow of the text, providing a realistic context for the scientific research in the book. These case studies ensure that students never lose sight of the fact that beyond diagnostic criteria, theory and research, there are human beings struggling with these disorders.

  • "Student Learning Outcomes" open each chapter, helping instructors accurately assess and map questions throughout the chapter. The outcomes are mapped to the core APA goals (2012) and are integrated throughout the instructor resources and testing program.
