Welcome to Dr. Caleb Lack's Abnormal Psychology: An e-text!

This wiki is an ongoing collaboration between myself and students at the University of Central Oklahoma and Arkansas Tech University. So far, over 300 students have spent eight semesters and thousands of hours in contributing to this wiki. The purpose of this wiki is to offer an alternative to the often quite expensive textbooks used in most undergraduate abnormal psychology courses by creating a user-driven, interactive online text. We also want to be able to cover a larger number of topics than traditional texts, allowing professors and students to focus on their own interests.
