Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
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. This book will be important reading for practitioners, students, and researchers in clinical psychology, psychiatry, clinical social work, and related fields. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level courses such as Abnormal Psychology and Developmental Psychopathology.
