Summary

Psychological scientists have identified various patterns of abnormal behavior and are beginning to understand some of the reasons behind them and how to treat people displaying them. The person we become is affected by more factors than we can ever possibly be aware of. Written in engaging and accessible prose, Personality and Abnormal Psychology describes how psychological research has led to the understanding of many of those factors and how our personalities develop. One of the persistent questions involves how and why people show abnormal thought and behavior.
