This highly respected reference and text on developmental psychopathology brings together leading authorities on the psychological, biological, and social-contextual determinants of child and adolescent problems. The comprehensive introductory chapter provides a state-of-the-art developmental--systems framework for understanding behavioral and emotional disturbances. Subsequent chapters synthesize the developmental bases of specific disorders. The characteristics, epidemiology, developmental course and outcomes, and etiological pathways of each disorder are described, as are risk and protective factors and issues in conceptualization and diagnosis. Important unanswered questions are identified and implications for treatment and prevention considered.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mash and Barkley score big with this third edition. This book has become the classic in the field, and the third edition will seal its status for years to come. Eminent contributors weave interesting and intricate descriptions of the various disorders and problems in living. The book is squarely at the interface of clinical practice and intervention science and will go a long way toward bridging the gap between them. Students and professionals alike will benefit from this stimulating, up-to-date volume."--Thomas H. Ollendick, PhD, ABPP, University Distinguished Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director, Child Study Center, Virginia Tech

"The third edition of Child Psychopathology reviews current research and theory, provides conceptual models for disorders, and points to new developments in the field. Nineteen chapters cover the major disorders of childhood, including four timely new chapters and 15 that have been superbly updated. Many of the authors from the second edition have remained on board, providing welcome continuity. This volume is the source for understanding the state of the field of child psychopathology. It is a 'must read' for professionals and for graduate-level courses."--Rex Forehand, PhD, University Distinguished Professor and Heinz and Rowena Ansbacher Professor of Psychology, University of Vermont

"The third edition of this highly esteemed work sets the standard for the field by providing comprehensive coverage of childhood disorders from a developmental psychopathology perspective. Like previous editions, the volume is skillfully edited and chapters are written by leading experts in the field. Important additions to this edition include a description of childhood disorders based on DSM-5 diagnostic criteria. This volume is an ideal text for graduate courses in child psychopathology as well as an invaluable resource about childhood disorders that can be used to guide and inform evidence-based assessment and treatment."--Bryce D. McLeod, PhD, Department of Psychology, Virginia Commonwealth University
