Overview

Recent experience with interventions designed to promote the well-being of children and to prevent mental health problems has identified particular challenges in families with disordered parents. These families are often very difficult to engage in mental health promotion and prevention programs, and they may be especially resistant to intervention. The Effects of Parental Dysfunction on Children explores the current level of knowledge regarding the processes by which a number of parental disorders influence the developmental outcomes of children.

Renowned scientist-practitioners from the United States, Canada, and Australia contributed ten chapters to this volume addressing the topic of the effects of parental behavioral and emotional disorders on children. The major topics covered by this book focus on children growing up in families in which the parents suffer from major psychosocial difficulties, including schizophrenia, depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, anxiety disorders, intellectual disabilities, and antisocial personality disorder.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This book examines the various ways in which a number of parental dysfunctions, including but not limited to schizophrenia, depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, and anxiety disorders, influence and affect the developmental stages and eventual outcomes of children.
Purpose: The purpose is to explore the current level of thinking regarding the developmental outcomes of children who have been affected by parental dysfunctions. This work is supported by numerous empirical research studies and expert contributing authors. The book is an interesting addition to the field.
Audience: The book will benefit clinical child and developmental psychologists as well as child and adolescent psychiatrists. The book has a strong potential to benefit graduate students as a teaching tool. The contributing authors are credible authorities in the field.
Features: The book is divided into two sections. The first section covers the genetic, biological, and environmental factors which play a key role in the transmission of the effects of parental dysfunction on development of the child. The second section is more detailed and focuses on specific parental dysfunctions such as substance use and psychopathology. The chapters on substance use and on internalizing disorders are well-written and will be of interest.
Assessment: Overall, the book is a sound addition to the field of psychology and sheds light on the most current thought and research involving parental dysfunctions and the developmental effects on children.
