Cengage Learning; 6th edition
Through an accurate and thoughtful balance of clinical-diagnostic; developmental; and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology; Eric Mash and David Wolfe’s Abnormal Child Psychology 6th edition (PDF) remains the most scholarly; authoritative; and comprehensive ebook in its market. This sixty edition has been organized and updated to reflect DSM-5 categories; as well as dimensional approaches to classification and evidence-based assessment and treatment. Accessible to a broad range of readers; the ebook traces the developmental course of each disorder. It also shows how child psychopathology involves psychological; biological; and sociocultural factors interacting with a child’s environment. Case examples; Case histories; and first-person accounts are at the heart of the textbook; 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: schools; homes; and communities.
