Clinical Psychology: Revisiting the Classic Studies

First Edition
Edited by:

August 2019 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Clinical Psychology: Revisiting the Classic Studies traces 14 ground-breaking studies by researchers such as Leo Kanner, David T. Lykken and Aaron T. Beck to re-examine and reflect on their findings and engage in a lively discussion of the subsequent work that they have inspired. Revisiting the Classic Studies is a series of texts that introduces readers to the studies in psychology that changed the way we think about core topics in the discipline today. It provokes students to ask more interesting and challenging questions about the field by encouraging a deeper level of engagement, both with the details of the studies themselves and with the nature of their contribution. Written by researchers at the cutting edge of these developments, the chapters in each text provide details of the original works, as well as their theoretical and empirical impact.
