E. Mark Cummings, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Notre Dame, Patrick T. Davies, PhD, Department of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology, University of Rochester, and Susan B. Campbell, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Pittsburgh Foreword by Dante Cicchetti Developmental psychopathology seeks to unravel the complex connections among biological, psychological, and social-contextual aspects of normal and abnormal development. This volume presents the core and cutting-edge principles of the field in an integrative, accessible manner. The investigatory lens is focused on the primary context in which children develop the family. Reviewing current research in such areas as attachment and parenting styles, marital functioning, and parental depression, the volume examines how these variables may influence developmental processes across a range of domains and, in turn, predict the emergence of clinical problems. Illuminated are the interplay of risk and protective factors, biological and contextual influences, and continuous and discontinuous patterns of development in childhood and adolescence. Also considered in depth are the ways in which the developmental psychopathology perspective points to new directions in diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of child emotional and behavioral disorders. The volume features a wealth of figures, tables, and illustrative vignettes. Contents Introduction I. THEORY 1. What Is Developmental Psychopathology? 2. Identifying the Dynamic Processes Underlying the Development of Psychopathology 3. Methodological Directions in Developmental Psychopathology Research 4. Pathways in Development 5. Complex Patterns of Influence: Risk and Protective Factors II. RESEARCH 6. Child Development and the Parent Child Subsystem 7. New Directions in the Study of Parenting and Child Development 8. Children and the Marital Subsystem 9. Applications of Developmental Psychopathology: Parental Depression, Families, and Children's Development III. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS 10. A Developmental Psychopathology Perspective on the Diagnosis, Classification, and Conceptualization of Children's Problems 11. A Developmental Psychopathology Perspective on Prevention and Treatment Epilogue 'This book presents a rich compendium of extant theory and research on family influences and child development, including both psychopathological and resilient outcomes. The reader is helped to navigate a theoretically rich framework, challenged to grapple with difficult issues related to methodology, and provided with state-of-the-art knowledge derived from empirical research. The incorporation of a section on clinical implications serves to realize the full potential of the developmental psychopathology perspective. This book will be a valuable addition to the libraries of scholars and practitioners in psychology, psychiatry, and related disciplines. I highly recommend it.' --- Dante Cicchetti, PhD, Mt. Hope Family Center, University of Rochester 'I know of few books in the psychopathology field that do such a good job of integrating current theory with up-to-the-minute, state-of-the-art research, and none that does such a good job with a family systems approach. Exceptionally well written, the book breaks new ground in creating new and complex dynamic models of the mechanisms linking risks and outcomes. Many new studies are incorporated that I hadn't yet come across. All of my graduate students will have to read this book, and I will be using it frequently as a reference text.' --- Philip A. Cowan, PhD, University of California, Berkeley 'Superb....The best integration of material on the topic of developmental psychopathology that I have seen. It is a highly valuable introduction to the perspective and will be widely used and cited by students, scholars, and practitioners. New and exciting issues are highlighted throughout. In particular, the chapter on research methodology should be required reading for all graduate students in developmental psychology as well as clinical psychology.' ---- Ross D. Parke, PhD, University of California, Riverside

"A remarkable achievement. I know of few books in the psychopathology field that do such a good job of integrating current theory with up-to-the-minute, state-of-the-art research, and none that does such a good job with a family systems approach. Exceptionally well written, the book breaks new ground in creating new and complex dynamic models of the mechanisms linking risks and outcomes. Many new studies are incorporated that I had not yet come across. All of my graduate students will have to read this book, and I will be using it frequently as a reference text."--Philip A. Cowan, PhD, Director, Institute of Human Development, University of California, Berkeley"This book provides a rich analysis of extant theory and research on family influences and child development, including both psychopathology and resilience. The reader is helped to navigate a theoretically rich framework, challenged to grapple with difficult issues related to methodology, and provided with the 'state-of-the-art' knowledge derived from empirical research. The incorporation of a section on the clinical implications of this body of work serves to realize the full potential inherent in a developmental psychopathology perspective."--from the Foreword by Dante Cicchetti, PhD, Mt.
