Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology - 03 edition

Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology (ISBN10: 0205322050; ISBN13: 9780205322053)
ISBN13: 978-0205322053
ISBN10: 0205322050

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.

For students to understand child and adolescent psychopathology, they must explore the complex interplay of developmental, biological, familiar, cultural, and historical factors that shape behavior. Child Psychopathology integrates these vari
ed contexts in a user-friendly format that allows students to fully understand child maladaptive 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.

Features:
  • This is a research-based text, providing current and state-of-the-art information.
  • Inclusion of the full range of childhood problems, such as child abuse, schizophrenia, and learning disorders provides students with a better understanding of the range of difficulties that children and adolescents face.
  • Case studies of each disorder bring the materials to life and put diagnostic criteria in context for students.
  • Students can explore each disorder further on the Internet with the Web sites that are provided at the end of each chapter.
  • Coverage of the historical perspective for each disorder helps put current concerns into context.
