Psychopathology: a critical perspective

Lee, A and Irwin, R (2017) Psychopathology: a critical perspective. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge. ISBN 9781107009813 (Forthcoming)

Abstract

In 'Psychopathology: A Critical Perspective', Lee and Irwin demonstrate that mental illness often defies traditional forms of medical classification. They explore mental illness through sets of broad symptoms (such as psychosis or depression), rather than diagnostic checklists, integrating both psychological and neurological frameworks and presenting a unique and balanced perspective on psychopathology. Written to support teaching and learning, Psychopathology: A Critical Perspective encourages students to question the evidence supplied by traditional psychiatric methods and explore alternatives to traditional diagnostic models, reflecting real world practice. Pedagogical features such as discussion questions in each chapter encourage critical engagement and classroom debate. The result is an original examination of mental illness and a standalone resource for students in this area.
