Overview

New edition of a text that combines developmental and clinical approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology. Mash (psychology, U. of Calgary) and Wolfe (psychology and psychiatry, U. of Western Ontario) trace the developmental pathways for emotional and behavioral problems as they unfold, using first-person accounts and case histories to link key topics and individual experiences of children and families. For each disorder, they offer coverage of the interplay among child, family, peer, school, and cultural influences; interactions among risk and protective factors to explore why some children cope despite adverse early circumstances and others do not; gender differences in symptom expression, causes, pathways, and outcomes; ethnocultural factors; and intervention and prevention.
