1 Review
Childhood personality and behaviour forecast adult life - but many children with severe behaviour problems nevertheless turn into competent and successful adults. Who recovers, and who goes on to become a schizophrenic, a criminal, or an alcoholic? This book presents the findings from major longitudinal studies in psychopathology, extending from childhood into adulthood.
