Parenting and psychopathology

Front Cover
Divided into two parts: (I) theory, assessment and methodology; and (II) clinical issues--parental rearing behaviour and psychopathology, this book describes the results of a long-term, multinational research project concerning the relationship between the experience of parental rearing attitudes and the development of personality characteristics and specific psychopathological disorders--including alcoholism; eating disorders; depression; schizophrenia; obsessive-complusive disorder; and suicidal thoughts. The editors have brought together an international team of authors, all of whom are leading authorities in their own fields, from the USA, Europe, China, Japan and Australia, thus enabling them to provide an evaluation of parental rearing attitudes in different cultures. This book appears in The Wiley Series in Clinical Psychology Series Editor: J. Mark G. Williams University College of North Wales, Bangor, UK
