Recent developments in the conceptualization of externalizing spectrum disorders, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorder, antisocial personality disorder, and substance use disorders, suggest common genetic and neural substrates. Despite this, neither shared vulnerabilities nor their implications for developmental models of externalizing conduct are captured by prevailing nosologic and diagnostic systems, such as the DSM-5. The Oxford Handbook of Externalizing Spectrum Disorders is the first book of its kind to capture the developmental psychopathology of externalizing spectrum disorders by examining causal factors across levels of analysis and developmental epochs, while departing from the categorical perspective. World renowned experts on externalizing psychopathology demonstrate how shared genetic and neural vulnerabilities predispose to trait impulsivity, a highly heritable personality construct that is often shaped by adverse environments into increasingly intractable forms of externalizing conduct across development. Consistent with contemporary models of almost all forms of psychopathology, the Handbook emphasizes the importance of neurobiological vulnerability and environmental risk interactions in the expression of externalizing behavior across the lifespan. The volume concludes with an integrative, ontogenic process model of externalizing psychopathology in which diverse equifinal and multifinal pathways to disorder are specified.

"Drs. Beauchaine and Hinshaw have assembled a truly remarkable, high quality set of chapters on externalizing psychopathology. The volume is replete with gems making it a 'must read' and deserving to be on the bookshelf of any serious student of psychopathology, from the beginning graduate student to the most senior investigator. Wisely approaching externalizing psychopathology across multiple levels of analysis, the volume is undeniably at the cutting edge." --Mark F. Lenzenweger, PhD, Distinguished Professor, The State University of New York at Binghamton, and Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College
"Readers will gain an extensive understanding of the developmental psychopathology underlying externalizing disorders from this book. It should be in the libraries of clinicians and researchers interested in psychopathology."- Doodys Review
