Through a thoughtful and accurate balance of developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology, Eric Mash and David Wolfe's ABNORMAL CHILD PSYCHOLOGY remains the most authoritative, scholarly, and comprehensive book in its market. Accessible to a broad range of readers, the book traces the developmental course of each disorder and shows how biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interact with a child's environment.
