How do biological and environmental factors influence the development of childhood and adolescent disorders?

There has been a substantial increase of interest in research into child and adolescent psychopathology. In this book, Cecilia Essau brings together contributions from the UK, the US and Canada to provide a comprehensive summary of the information available on the subject.

Beginning with an introduction to general issues related to child and adolescent psychopathology, including theoretical models of normal and abnormal development, each chapter goes on to address the issues associated with specific disorders, such as:

oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder
attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
eating disorders
substance use disorders
somatoform disorders.
The contributors present a thorough overview of each disorder, including discussion of definition and classification, epidemiology, risk factors, comorbidity, course, outcome and prevention.

Child & Adolescent Psychopathology will be welcomed by all mental health professionals seeking a reliable source of scientifically and clinically relevant information on the nature and treatment of child and adolescent disorders.

"Child and Adolescent Psychopathology: Theoretical and Clinical Implications is a publication that indeed covers a lot of ground in child psychopathology, complete with research findings and clinical theoretical models. The chapters' authors follow a concise, almost universal style of writing, which allows for easy reading and would satisfy the educational needs of advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and mental health professionals. Essau captures the major psychological and psychiatric disorders of childhood in a well-planned book that is able to complement more detailed publications of childhood psychopathology…in courses of developmental psychopathology for clinical and counseling psychology students. Similarly, this book, when paired with case studies of childhood disorders, can become a solid foundation for an applied course of clinical child psychology and other graduate mental health courses."
