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.
