Compiled from papers presented at the Rochester Symposium on Developmental Psychopathology, this is the first book of its kind devoted to disseminating theory and research in the field of psychopathology. Contributions to this text are unified by their incorporation of developmental principles into the study of various types of emotional disorders in children and adults. Also emphasized in this book is the importance of bridging the dichotomy between scientific research and the application of this knowledge to clinical populations. Designed as both a required and supplementary text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in developmental psychopathology, abnormal, clinical, and health psychology as well as neuroscience. Also insightful for psychiatric and pediatric residents, nurses, and social workers.
