About the Book
The revised edition of Global Encyclopaedia of Clinical Psychology explains the boundaries between what is normal and abnormal among different cultures. It looks at the symptoms of mental illness of individual and organisation. The Encylopaedia captures a sense of clinical psychology as a dynamic and changing field which has grown up fast along-side other more established professions involved in mental health care and which is continuing to evolve in response to contemporary needs. The text of this Encyclopaedia provides a comprehensive overview, covering the field’s historical roots, reliance and personality theory, research methods, concepts of deviance, all major aspects of assessment and treatment and major specialties that constitute modern clinical practices. This Encyclopaedia is organized alphabetically into over 78 entries covering the whole spectrum of clinical psychology: business terms, concepts, theorists, practitioners, institutions etc. We believe that this comprehensive, evidence-based Encyclopaedia will prove an invaluable resource for anyone undertaking post-graduate training in clinical psychology, as well as practitioners, psychiatrists and psychotherapists.
