    ABSTRACT
    Abnormal Psychology: Leading Researcher Perspectives recognises the need for the highest level of accuracy, currency and comprehensive coverage; the chapters are written by leading researchers in their respective fields and reflect major topics of contemporary abnormal psychology. Throughout, the authors adopt a biopsychosocial perspective in integrating material from diverse areas of research in a highly accessible manner. The chapters will provide readers with an understanding of each disorder's diagnosis, epidemiology, aetiology and treatment, as well as highlighting current challenges and controversies in the field. Importantly, each chapter has been written by specialists working in the Australian and New Zealand context so as to maximise the relevance and accessibility of the material for Australasian readers.
