Beschrijving
Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology approaches child and adolescent behavior from a developmental perspective to allow students to incorporate multiple theories into an integrated understanding of child behavior. For students to understand child and adolescent psychopathology, they must explore the complex interplay of developmental, biological, familiar, cultural, and historical factors that shape behavior. Child Psychopathology integrates these varied contexts in a user-friendly format that allows students to fully understand child maladaptive behavior. This text employs state-of-the-art material combining case studies, diagnostic issues, research, and Internet Web sites to illustrate that child and adolescent "abnormal" behavior does not occur in a vacuum, and that inside of each of these disorders are real children with real strengths and weaknesses.
