Overview

Through their 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 book in today's abnormal child psychology market. Appropriate for novice and expert alike, this book traces the developmental course of each disorder and shows how biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interact with a child's environment. Since one of the best ways to introduce students to a particular problem of childhood or adolescence is to first describe a real child, the authors begin each chapter with engaging first-person accounts and case histories of a child with a particular disorder. This child is then referred to throughout the entire chapter, illustrating the categorical and dimensional approaches used to describe disorders, as well as bringing life to the theories Mash and Wolfe present. Embracing today's world with leading-edge coverage of the DSM-IV-TR and dimensional approaches to classification, Mash and Wolfe's comprehensive introduction covers many topics: evidence-based assessment and treatment, contemporary research and cutting-edge theories related to the predominantly inattentive ADHD subtype, early-onset and the developmental propensity model of conduct disorder, the triple vulnerability model of anxiety, the tripartite model in children, depression, and autism.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an outstanding text, beautifully rendered, visually appealing, and intellectually first-rate. It is undoubtedly the best undergraduate textbook I have encountered on the subject, covering all major disorders in a way that is informative to both novice and expert alike. Richly referenced and sprinkled through with interesting and instructive case anecdotes, this textbook is scientifically state-of-art. There simply is no better text for introducing students to the subject of child psychopathology."

"I think your text helped me reach my objectives and face the challenge of teaching this course. I am glad to have used it, and will recommend it to my graduate students who teach Abnormal Child. I will use it again." "The text is very readable and engaging. The inclusion of case examples helps to illustrate the diagnostic issues, humanize the material, and diminish the density of the more 'academic' information. The figures, tables etc. provide interesting bits of information that help maintain the readers attention and illustrate important issues."

"The students find the book accessible and the case vignettes, etc. make learning the material more fun."

"Of all the undergraduate texts on abnormal child psychology, it is simply the best." "I found the text very readable, and I believe my students agreed that the writing was accessible, clear, and interesting." "The integrative developmental psychopathology perspective is excellent and unique. The writing is clear and accessible. The organization of the book overall and of each chapter makes sense - I never had the annoying experience of wondering why something was included in any of the chapters. And the text seems really up-to-date with the most current research."

    Undergrad text - very basic

    This is an undergraduate text -- extremely basic -- on Abnormal Child Psychology, but it does not provide much in terms of helpful information beyond explaining the basics of some childhood disorders. It may be a fine introduction for those beginning to learn about abnormal psych 'although even then, I'd recommend something a bit more advanced, if the population is above Freshman level in College', but it certainly is not written for those studying childhood disorders at a clinical level. There are no 'norm-references' or 'developmental milestones' charts/tables/etc. There is very little substantial information beyond what one might get in a basic abnormal psychology text or a general psych text. The upshot: if using for undergrads, use caution. If using for graduate-level courses, DON'T.
