This innovative textbook adopts a lifespan approach to mental
health. Paul Bennett provides an overview of factors that influence
risk for mental health problems throughout the life course and
emphasises lifelong models of mental health and disorders. In
addition, he describes the nature and treatment of disorders
specific to childhood, adulthood, and older adulthood. Adopting a
transdiagnostic approach, Clinical Psychology Through the Lifespan
explores commonalities in the origins and processes associated with
a range of disorders, as well as their unique features. Although
the DSM 5 diagnostic criteria for each of the disorders are
outlined in an appendix, a key emphasis of the book is its clinical
psychology perspective. This is highlighted by text boxes within
each chapter which focus on therapeutic case formulation and
specific therapeutic process or challenges.Written for
undergraduate and Master's level psychology students studying
mental health, it will be of interest to students from a range of
other disciplines including nursing, medicine, and allied health.
Paul Bennett is a professor in the School of Psychology at the
University of Swansea, UK. He previously taught psychology at
Cardiff and Bristol Universities and worked as a clinical
psychologist for the NHS.
