Abnormal Child Psychology
Through a thoughtful and accurate balance of developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology, Eric Mash and David Wolfe's ABNORMAL CHILD PSYCHOLOGY remains the most authoritative, scholarly, and comprehensive book in its market. Accessible to a broad range of readers, the book traces the developmental course of each disorder and shows how biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interact with a child's environment. Case histories, case examples, and first-person accounts are at the heart of the text, illustrating the categorical and dimensional approaches used to describe disorders and bringing life to the theories discussed. The authors also consistently illustrate how troubled children behave in their natural settings: homes, schools, and communities. Up-to-date and forward-looking, the text covers the DSM-IV-TR and dimensional approaches to classification as well as evidence-based assessment and treatment, contemporary research, and the latest theories related to the predominantly inattentive ADHD subtype, early-onset and the developmental propensity model of conduct disorder, the triple vulnerability model of anxiety, the tripartite model in children, depression, and autism.
