Accessible and clearly written, "Developmental Psychopathology, 4/e", is designed to be challenging to students rather than being "dumbed down" for them. Presenting a balance of perspectives, including the behavioral, psychodynamic, cognitive, and family systems, the authors provide a rich, thought-provoking, and integrative view of developmental psychopathology. In this new edition, a consistent organizational scheme is used in each chapter, and the research is up-to-date, including particular attention to important new emerging themes such as attachment, neurobiological models, and peer relations.

Describes the normal development of ten variables that will be relevant to understanding various psychopathologies (e.g., attachment, self-control, anxiety, etc.)
