Abnormal psychology is the extension of psychology that studies uncommon examples of behaviors, feelings and thoughts, which could possibly be seen as accelerating a mental issue. Albeit numerous practices could be considered as unusual, this limb of psychology for the most part manages conduct in a clinical setting.

The Journal of Abnormal Psychology publishes articles on basic research and theory in the broad field of abnormal behavior, its determinants, and its correlates. The following general topics fall within its area of major focus:

  1. psychopathology—its etiology, development, symptomatology, and course;
  2. normal processes in abnormal individuals;

  3. pathological or atypical features of the behavior of normal persons;

  4. experimental studies, with human or animal subjects, relating to disordered emotional behavior or pathology;

  5. sociocultural effects on pathological processes, including the influence of gender and ethnicity; and

  6. tests of hypotheses from psychological theories that relate to abnormal behavior
