Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lesley Kassicieh, DO (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This comprehensive book on childhood and adolescent disorders addresses genetic, neurobiological, and environmental factors from a developmental perspective. It focuses on how, when, and why disorders emerge among children and adolescents, and in what ways symptom profiles change at different stages of development. This update expands coverage of epigenetics, classification, culture, and context.
Purpose: The book is intended to cover the core aspects of child and adolescent mental health illnesses from a developmental psychopathology perspective. It presents development psychopathology as a multidisciplinary conceptual approach linking normative development psychology and the scientific discipline closely tied to clinical child and adolescent psychopathology and psychiatry for transcending the usual diagnosis-based emphasis of these fields. It presents mental illnesses through the lens of the dynamic interplay of biology and context, genes and environment, and "inner" versus "outer" influences on the development of healthy and atypical functioning.
Audience: The intended audience includes child and adolescent mental health professionals, and students pursuing careers in the field as researchers or clinicians.
Features: With nearly 800 pages and 21 chapters, this book may seem overwhelming at first glance, but a closer inspection will reveal that it provides a rich framework for understanding the expanding field of developmental psychopathology as a scientific discipline and attempts to explain child and adolescent psychiatric illnesses from a developmental psychopathology perspective. The chapters are organized to provide a historical understanding of developmental psychopathology as an emerging paradigm, and how child and adolescent psychiatric illnesses are viewed through its lens. These illnesses are sorted into the categories of internalizing and externalizing behaviors to further enable readers to immerse themselves in the viewpoint of developmental psychopathology.
Assessment: This is an important addition to the field of child and adolescent mental health. It coalesces concepts from a number of historically based endeavors from a wide variety of disciplines including embryology, genetics, and the neurosciences, as well as psychoanalysis, psychiatry, and psychology, and provides examples of the synergistic contributions from previously disparate fields that have resulted in the emergence of this new discipline of developmental psychopathology.
