This book is meant basically for students who wish to pursue a career in the field of psychology. It is meant to be an introduction to the subject of abnormal psychology, although in its depth, it includes, albeit briefly, albeit range of behavioral traits, their symptoms and suggested methods of treatment. It deals with the basics of abnormal psychology.
There is a growing demand for professionals who are trained in dealing with what is termed ‘abnormal’ psychology. Stresses build up quicker than ever before, putting people on the edge of falling off the cliff of normality.
There are signs and symptoms, which the trained psychologist can detect, which indicate to him the need for professional therapy for such people to enable them to come to terms with the brave new world of rapidly changing technology and intense competition that is the cauldron of the workplace today.
This book is for students who intend to study psychology as a profession, those who have just entered the profession and also for the layman, often a victim of the stresses and strains of the modern world, who feels that something is wrong with him or the world at large which makes him uneasy and afraid.
The chapters have been written to give confidence to the learner as well as the sufferer.
