Summary: Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology approaches child and adolescent behavior from a developmental perspective to allow students to incorporate multiple theories into an integrated understanding of child behavior.

This text employs state-of-the-art material combining case studies, diagnostic issues, research, and Internet Web sites to illustrate that child and adolescent "abnormal" behavior does not occur in a vacuum, and that inside of each of these disorders are real children with real strengths and weaknesses.
