This volume provides a forum for interdisciplinary perspectives in the emerging discipline of developmental psychopathology. The goal is to elucidate the four central principles of this discipline: the application of classical developmental theory in work with atypical populations; the delineation of insights from atypical populations that inform developmental theory; the integration of methods and theories from various social science disciplines; and the description of implications for interventions and social policy. So far, there have been few efforts to present each of these principles of developmental psychopathology within a single, unifying framework. Illustrating these central principles across a range of state-of-the-art research programs, this unique collection of papers will be invaluable for students, current researchers, and clinicians seeking a sound understanding of this rapidly emerging social science discipline.

This volume provides a forum for interdisciplinary perspectives in the emerging discipline of developmental psychopathology. Each chapter in the book reflects a major research program within a discrete area, and using this research as a base, delineates the central principles of developmental psychopathology.Review:
."..an excellent overview of the field of developmental psychopathology...[T]his book covers many interesting theoretical and clinical topics. I would recommend this book to researchers and clinicians interested in both development and psychopathology across the life span." Contemporary Psychology "This edited volume discusses a range of topics relevant to the field of developmental psychopathology through a well grouped series of scholarly papers. The distinctive work of Edward Zigler, to whom the book is a tribute, is highlighted and reflected throughout this book...Intended for use as a textbook in developmental psychopathology, this volume will do well for the upper level undergraduate as well as graduate student. In addition, the wide scope of topics and multiple perspectives lends itself useful to students and researchers within child development, clinical psychology, psychiatry, and other related fields."
