About this book
There are five separate sections to this book arranged in a logical sequence. Sec tion One covers normal phenomenology of human behavior, including issues of learning and growth and development. Section Two addresses the theories of human development (which have implications for problem behavior) as well as the psychosocial issues in health care delivery. The latter are those issues which are not clearly psychopathology, but represent problems in health care delivery which physicians encounter in the normal practice of medicine. Section Three is an overview of psychopathology in both children and adults, and Section Four deals with the diagnosis and intervention issues involved in various forms of psychopathology and problems of living. Section Five is the overview of the dif ferent systems of health care delivery and the incidence/prevalence of different health care problems. This is a review text and should not be substituted for more complete texts. The authors do not recommend that this book be used as a course text except to those academic offerings that are specifically directed to an overview of the behavioral sciences. To use this book effectively, the beginning student should start at the first chapter and progress through the text in a systematic fashion. For the more ad vanced student the basic information in Sections One and Two might be skipped and they can proceed directly to Sections Three and Four.
