This state-of-the-art work has been highly praised for bridging the divide between adult and developmental psychopathology. The volume illuminates the interplay of biological, cognitive, affective, and social-environmental factors that place individuals at risk for psychological disturbance throughout development. Childhood-onset and adult forms of major disorders are examined in paired chapters by prominent clinical researchers. An integrative third chapter on each disorder then summarizes what is known about continuity and change in vulnerability across the lifespan. Implications for assessment, treatment, and prevention are also considered.

"The best single source of information on vulnerability. Thoroughly revised and updated, the volume includes the latest research findings from studies using clinical, longitudinal, neurobiological, and genetic methods. It will prove to be an invaluable resource for mental health practitioners, students, and psychiatric residents."--Michael Thase, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania "Outstanding! Ingram and Price have brought together leading investigators in this key text for understanding the etiologies of psychopathology from a lifespan, integrative perspective. This text is rich in theory and deep in research. It is an outstanding reference source for an advanced undergraduate course in abnormal, developmental, or child psychology, and a 'must' for any graduate student, professor, or serious investigator of psychopathology."--Thomas A. Widiger, PhD, T. Marshall Hahn Professor of Psychology, University of Kentucky
"For the second edition of this superb volume, Ingram and Price have once again assembled a stellar group of contributors to address the critically important concept of vulnerability to psychopathology over the life course. The authors are internationally recognized experts in their fields, and, as one would expect, the chapters are rich, coherent, and integrated into a strong conceptual framework. This is the only volume of its kind, presenting a comprehensive overview of vulnerability to different forms of psychopathology in children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly. This book is required reading for scientists or students who are interested in understanding factors that contribute to the development of psychopathology across the lifespan."--Ian H. Gotlib, PhD, Department of Psychology, Stanford University
