Why do some children grow into resilient, adaptive adults, while others develop serious psychological problems? What are the dynamic processes and pathways that underlie normal and abnormal development? And how can the answers to these questions inform efforts to decrease both the prevalence and the severity of psychological distress? Focusing on the primary context in which children develop--the family--this volume unravels the complex connections among biological, psychological, and social-contextual processes that influence adaptation in childhood and adolescence. Explicating the basic concepts and methods of developmental psychopathology, the book sets forth a process-oriented framework for understanding human development and the onset of disordered behavior.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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. Hope Family Center, University of Rochester

"This superb volume is 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, Presidential Chair and Distinguished Professor in Psychology and Director, Center for Family Studies.
