What does the word 'schizophrenia' mean to you? Perhaps your first thought is of someone with a medical condition that involves some kind of brain disease? But what if you knew that the person in question had been through a traumatic childhood? Would that change how you thought about their mental health? And what impact does this have on how we as a society interact with people with mental distress?

Psychology, Mental Health and Distress is the first mainstream textbook that reconsiders the traditional emphasis on the biological and psychiatric models for what is commonly, but contentiously, known as 'abnormal psychology' or 'psychopathology'. It provides a fully rounded account of mental distress, including social and relationship causes, and challenges your preconceptions about what you think you know about mental health.

Key features:
* Reflects new approaches to mental health and the kinds of psychological interventions (or 'treatments') for those experiencing distress, moving away from a limited diagnostic model
* Offers a wealth of case stories to portray the reality of living with distress, building your empathy to encourage sensitive practice
* Fully informed by current experimental, qualitative and theoretical psychological research including research into hearing voices
* Written by a team of leading clinical and social psychologists with additional contributions by renowned figures including Richard Bentall, a bestselling Penguin author whose Madness Explained won the 2004 BPS Book Award
* Includes a chapter authored by those with first-hand experience of mental health services, ensuring you understand the nuances of this emotionally charged, and often controversial, topic

The authors draw from a range of experience, examples and approaches to present this student-friendly and engaging text: core reading for anyone serious about understanding mental health issues.
Clinical Psychology, Second Edition offers a comprehensive and an up-to-date introduction to the field. Written by clinical practitioners and researchers, as well as service users who add their personal stories, the book provides a broad and balanced view of contemporary clinical psychology.

This new edition has been extensively revised throughout and includes a new section on working with people with disabilities and physical health problems. It also includes a new chapter on career choices, and help and advice on how to move forward into clinical psychology training.

The book starts by explaining the core elements of what a clinical psychologist does and the principles of clinical practice, as well as outlining the role of the clinical psychologist within a healthcare team. It goes on to cover issues involved with working with children and families, adult mental health problems, working with people with disabilities and physical health problems, and the use of neuropsychology. The final part of the book explores current professional issues in clinical psychology, the history and future of clinical psychology, and career options.

The integrated and interactive approach, combined with the comprehensive coverage, make this book the ideal companion for undergraduate courses in clinical psychology, and anyone interested in a career in this field. It will also be of interest to anyone who wants to learn more about the work of a clinical psychologist, including other healthcare professionals.
