Overview

Through a thoughtful and accurate balance of developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology, Eric Mash and David Wolfe's ABNORMAL CHILD PSYCHOLOGY remains the most authoritative, scholarly, and comprehensive book in its market. This edition has been organized and updated to reflect DSM-5 categories, as well as dimensional approaches to classification and evidence-based assessment and treatment. Accessible to a broad range of readers, the book traces the developmental course of each disorder. It also shows how child psychopathology involves biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interacting with a child's environment. Case histories, case examples, and first-person accounts are at the heart of the book, illustrating the categorical and dimensional approaches used to describe disorders and bringing life to the theories discussed. The authors also consistently illustrate how troubled children behave in their natural settings: homes, schools, and communities.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This college text presents developmental, clinical, diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology while highlighting current advances and identifying questions in need of further research. Sections discuss abnormal child psychology, behavioral disorders, emotional disorders, developmental and learning disorders, and problems related to physical and mental health. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
"The greatest strengths are the depth and breadth of the coverage combined with the compelling cases. I particularly like the approach in the assessment chapter when the authors follow one case through the whole section."

"Comprehensive level of detail, well written and organized. Extremely clear and well-developed sections, nice breakdown of the chapters and summaries, (and it) covers a wide body of current research for many topics."

    E-textbook is horrible! Don't waste time on this!

    Do not waste your time using an e-textbook version of this book. It is not viewable on my Samsung Tablet, the copy features from the book are horrible to try to take notes with, the entire book freezes up on a regular basis. I literally just wasted the past 7 minutes of my life trying to get the e-text to turn to Chapter 12.

    I wish I could comment on the information in the book, but it is so difficult to get the e-textbook to OPEN and function that I am having a difficult time getting into the information. I wish Icould return it. I will NEVER waste this much time, and energy, on such a disappointing version. I thought an e-text would be easier to carry around than the actual textbook, but I will never make that mistake again.

    One last thing, NookStudy must still be working out glitches. My computer has been trying to install an update from NookStudy but it continually fails to complete. I never have issues installing any other updates for any other thing on my computer, only the update for NookStudy.

    Seriously, worst purchase of my entire undergraduate career!
