Introduction of integrative models of complex research data in every chapter (e.g., Barkley's model of ADHD, Vasey's model of anxiety disorders, Hammen's model of depression.
New! Extensively updated research findings in every chapter, with emphasis on areas of particularly active research (e.g., neuropsychological research, peer relations and their influence on psychopathology, insecure attachments as potential risks for psychopathology, comorbidity and its implication for understanding the developmental trajectory of a given psychopathology).
New! Updated diagnostic criteria to most recent edition of DSM
Key concepts in bold print rather than italics: increases visual ease and student learning.
Increased number of graphics: makes book more visually appealing.
Explicitly uses the theoretical perspective of developmental psychopathology in order to understand the origins and course of behavioral and emotional problems. Use of a developmental framework and developmental psychopathology concepts allows the chapters to go beyond mere descriptions of the disorders, in order to explore some of the more intriguing theories about the etiology of these emotional/behavioral problems.
Describes the normal development of ten variables that will be relevant to understanding various psychopathologies (e.g., attachment, self-control, anxiety, etc.)
