Introduction to Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology, Second Edition, adopts a developmental psychopathology approach to understanding childhood disorders. It balances the scientific aspects of child and adolescent psychopathology with vivid descriptions of how research findings are applied to help children and families in need. Now revised to include DSM-5 organization and diagnostic criteria, this text explores the emergence of disorders over time, describes the risk and protective factors that influence developmental processes and trajectories, and examines child psychopathology in the context of typical development.
