Description

Written from a developmental perspective; Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology 2nd edition is organized around 5 prominent and recurring themes: maladaptive behaviors represent deviations from the normal path; the course of normal development proceeds in an orderly and predictable direction; individual; interpersonal; contextual and cultural factors interact in a reciprocal way to influence normal development and abnormal deviations; maladaptive behavior is represented by a continuum of severity (symptoms; syndromes; disorders) based on the degree to which behaviors deviate from the norm; theoretical input from diverse perspectives can guide our understanding of underlying processes that precipitate and maintain behaviors and the different developmental pathways that might result. The revision will be divided into 5 sections; all integrating the DSM-5; and will include a new chapter on child maltreatment and self-injurious behavior.
