Overview

Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, this authoritative text integrates state-of-the-art theory and empirical research on a wide range of child and adolescent disorders. Featuring contributions from leading scholars and clinicians, the volume is notable for its comprehensive coverage of the biological, psychological, and social-contextual determinants of childhood problems. Each chapter focuses on a specific disorder, describing its characteristics, developmental course, and epidemiology; outlining current diagnostic and classification schemes; identifying risk and protective factors; and discussing implications for prevention and treatment. Including a new chapter on adolescent substance use disorders, the second edition has been updated throughout to reflect important advances in the field. Incorporated is emerging knowledge in the areas of neurobiology, genetics, developmental psychology, and emotions, as well as new findings on sex differences in psychopathology and long-term outcomes for children at risk.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D.(Cermak Health Services)
Description: This is a compendium of various childhood psychological disorders. Each contributor answers basic questions on a topic, including discussing conceptual models, integrating current research, addressing current limitations, and suggesting future research goals.
Purpose: According to the editors, "we tried to find the most knowledgeable professionals on particular disorders and asked them to provide up-to-date and comprehensive summaries of the nature of the disorders in which they have specialized. We asked only that their discussions be grounded in their respective bodies of scientific literature...." These are worthy objectives, which the book meets.
Audience: The book is written for clinical professionals and students. I agree with the editors about the target audience, though I think it is really graduate students who will benefit, not undergraduates. The editors and contributors are credible authorities in the subject matter.
Features: Various areas of child psychopathology are covered in the book including behavior disorders, emotional and social disorders, developmental and learning disorders, and eating and health-related disorders. It is very comprehensive and the contributors are indeed experts in their various specialties. It covers almost all of the major DSM-IV childhood disorders.
Assessment: This is an excellent book. The second edition was published because "research in child, adolescent, and developmental psychopathology continues to flourish even more so than when the first edition of this text was published." Since the first edition was published in 1996, a new edition is justified.
From the Publisher
"Child psychopathology experts Mash and Barkley have 'covered the waterfront' in this second edition of their comprehensive text. Empirically based chapters cover the full spectrum of child mental health, including behavior disorders, mood and anxiety disorders, autism, schizophrenia, learning disorders, and children at high risk. This book could serve as a full course in abnormal child psychology and should be on the bookshelf of all those in related fields, whether students, faculty members, or practitioners. The substantive introduction—almost a stand-alone text on developmental psychopathology—sets out the developmental systems framework that is used to integrate research findings from disparate professional disciplines and theoretical perspectives. Written by scholars with widely acknowledged expertise, each chapter includes a detailed description of the characteristics, diagnosis, epidemiology, prognosis, and multiple models of etiology of the syndrome at hand, as well as an exhaustive bibliography."—Mina K. Dulcan, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Northwestern University School of Medicine

"The publication of this revised second edition attests to the persistent demand for a volume of this type. Like its predecessor, the book gives evenhanded coverage to biological, cognitive, contextual, familial, and genetic variables in child psychopathology. In a field that is still in the early stages of development, this text offers a complete description of the current state of the science."—Gerald R. Patterson, PhD, Oregon Social Learning Center, Eugene, Oregon

"This is the second edition of a unique and deservedly popular text, which nests the current disorder-based taxonomy of child psychopathology within a developmental and multisystems framework. The volume comprises authoritative, extensively referenced, evidence-based reviews covering all the major childhood disorders. It is essential reading for practitioners and graduate students in all disciplines relevant to child mental health, including psychology, child psychiatry, and developmental pediatrics."—John Scott Werry, MD, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, University of Auckland, New Zealand

"This text is unequaled in its attention to current research and theory on child psychopathology."—Elizabeth Hayden, PhD, Psychology Department, University of Western Ontario

Geri R. Donenberg
This book contains 16 chapters covering five domains of childhood disorders: behavioral (e.g., conduct and oppositional defiant disorder), emotional and social (e.g., depression, anxiety), developmental and learning (e.g., autism, schizophrenia), health (e.g., anorexia), and children at risk (e.g., child maltreatment). Each chapter provides a historical perspective of the disorder, presents epidemiological data, reviews diagnostic features and related symptoms, addresses the effects of sociodemographic variables (e.g., gender, culture) on child psychopathology, and integrates diverse etiological models with current research on biological and social correlates. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive summary and update of the research literature on childhood disorders by the most knowledgeable experts in the field. Chapter authors were instructed to write everything they know about the disorder and to suggest directions for future research. The authors' objectives are important and noteworthy, and they accomplish their goals. This book appears to be written primarily for academic psychologists and psychiatrists, graduate students, and those interested in keeping up-to-date with the most pressing issues in the field of child psychopathology. Researchers in particular will find the chapters to be an excellent review of the literature. Contributors include the most knowledgeable and recognized experts in the field. Chapters are consistently well organized and include multiple headings for easy reading. Tables and figures supplement the text. Reference lists are extensive and recent; most citations were published in the 1990s. A subject and author index are provided. This bookoffers an illuminating comprehensive survey of diverse childhood disorders. Well-written chapters review what we know and what we do not know about the diagnosis, epidemiology, causes, and correlates of child psychopathology. Coverage of the topics is so thorough that this book is likely to be a definitive reference in the field for a long time.
