From the PublisherFrom reviews of the First Edition:
'The editors took on a challenging task in assembling a handbook of developmental psychopathology... [and] have chosen to portray [its] diversity and potential.... [A] useful sampling of [the field of] developmental psychopathology... [and] a valuable reference for a variety of professionals and investigators concerned with child and adolescent psychopathology.'
'For anyone concerned with child and adolescent psychopathology, there is a great deal of interest to be found in this excellent edited volume. The scope is broad with good coverage... [T]he chapters provide thoughtful and balanced reviews of both the current state of knowledge and some of the concepts and ideas that are likely to guide research and clinical practice over the next few years.... [T]he overall standard is high and the book can be recommended as an interesting set of highly informative essays on key issues...'

Prepublication praise for the Second Edition:
'This new edition coming ten years after the pioneering First Edition of the Handbook confirms how much growth has occurred in our understanding of the determinants of mental health in children. The inclusion of many new chapters on developmental issues will help both researchers and clinicians flesh out their understanding of both the ensuring progress and continuing issues in the field.'
Daniel Stern, Cornell University Medical School and University of Geneva
'This book achieves its aims in providing current insights into the relationship between development, biology, context, and protection against psychopathology. This conceptual framework provides a basis for characterizing the relationships between etiologic components of psychopathology. Handbook of Developmental Psychopathology, Second Edition is recommended as an essential volume in the personal libraries of all mental health clinicians and researchers.'
