Understanding Abnormal Psychology offers an animated and comprehensive introduction to common psychological problems, and guides beginning students in both psychology and clinical psychology through theoretical debates and practical therapies. The book assumes no prior knowledge of the subject and is written in a clear and non–technical way.

The author begins by considering the distinction between normal and abnormal behaviour and introduces issues related to the classification, diagnosis and assessment of psychological disorders. He then goes on to explore and discuss a range of topics including anxiety disorders, eating disorders, schizophrenia and sexual dysfunction, describing symptoms and theories of cause, and providing information on possible approaches to treatment.
