Systematic, authoritative, and timely, this is an outstanding reference and text for anyone working with or studying adolescents. More than 50 leading experts comprehensively review current knowledge on adolescent externalizing disorders, internalizing disorders, developmental disorders, personality and health-related disorders, gender identity and sexual disorders, and maltreatment and trauma. Chapters identify the core features of each disorder; explore its etiology, course, and outcome; address diagnostic issues specific to adolescents; and describe effective assessment and treatment approaches. The book also provides an integrative conceptual framework for understanding both healthy and maladaptive adolescent development.
"I am grateful to the authors for their timely, well-researched, and cohesive text....I really like this book. The authors have done a remarkable job of putting together a thought-provoking text that is a genuine contribution to helping all of us understand the complex, fast-changing world of adolescence."
"Knowledge and interest in psychopathology during adolescence is exploding, and this timely volume provides an excellent overview of this rapidly growing field. Chapters by a stellar group of authors systematically address state-of-the-art science and practice for a wide array of specific disorders and behavioral health problems faced by adolescents and their families and communities. An invaluable resource."
--Ann S. Masten, PhD, Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota
"Unlike problems of early childhood, adolescent problems are frequently seen as already 'fixed' and too late to change. This volume repeatedly challenges this misconception....Going beyond typical texts, the chapters deal with how development and health interact over time to present both challenges and opportunities for change at this pivotal life stage. This is an excellent text for courses in adolescent psychopathology and abnormal psychology, particularly as it takes cutting-edge research concerns and grounds them effectively in existing knowledge."
--Bonnie Leadbeater, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Victoria, Canada
"Scholarly, evidence-based, and up to date.... Simultaneously accessible and practical."
--Robert E. Emery, PhD, Center for Children, Families, and the Law, and Department of Psychology, University of Virginia
"Wolfe and Mash bring their professional and editorial expertise to this superb handbook...This volume is a tour de force that is exceptionally founded in research and well written for students as well as for fledgling and seasoned professionals."
--Michael C. Roberts, PhD, Clinical Child Psychology Program, University of Kansas
