Summary

In this current and scholarly text, authors Eric Mash and David Wolfe achieve a balance between developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology. The book traces the developmental course of each disorder and shows how biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interact with the child's environment. The authors focus on the child--not just the disorders--and include first-person accounts and cases to enrich the reader's understanding of what children with these disorders experience, emphasizing the strengths of individual children.

  • The text takes a transactional approach in which the interplay among individual, child, family, peer, and cultural influences is examined.
  • Systematic attention is given to disorders of both children and adolescents.
  • The book is divided into five parts: "Understanding Abnormal Child Psychology," "Behavioral Disorders" (ADHD and disruptive behavior disorders), "Emotional Disorders" (anxiety and mood disorders), "Developmental and Learning Disorders" (mental retardation, autism, childhood-onset schizophrenia, and communication and learning disorders) and "Problems Related to Physical and Mental Health."
  • Attention is given to risk and protective factors, and the conditions that lead to effective coping in some children, despite adverse early circumstances.
  • The book is sensitive to the importance of examining sub-types of similar forms of psychopathology.
  • The authors give close attention to important gender differences in the expression, determinants, and outcomes of child and adolescent disorders.
  • The authors emphasize the most current evidence-based treatment approaches, as well as the most promising strategies for prevention.
  • The text reflects strong scholarship and is clearly "up-to-date" with references from 1994-1998.
  • The authors draw on a multidisciplinary knowledge base that includes psychology, neuroscience, education, and psychiatry.
  • Separate chapters are devoted to the important areas of child abuse and health-related disorders.
  • The book is enriched with the inclusion of illustrative case material and first-person accounts that are woven into each chapter, making the disorders real.
  • Key terms introduced in each chapter are summarized at the chapter's end to help students study terminology.
  • The book is richly illustrated with over 108 photographs, 71 figures, and 19 cartoons.
  • The authors present developmental pathways for linking early childhood disorders with adolescent and adult outcomes.
  • The authors offer in-depth coverage of the role of the normal developmental process in understanding each disorder.
