Understanding the factors that place an individual at greater risk of developing psychopathology has important implications for both treatment and prevention of psychological disorders. Of critical relevance in this regard is the exploration of the potential influence of the family. Parenting and the family environment are considered to significantly contribute to a child's early development and adjustment. It follows then that parental behavior may also be of importance in the development, maintenance and or the prevention of psychopathology. Over the past 50 years there has been a considerable amount of research as well as controversy surrounding the link between parenting and psychopathology. The purpose of this book is to provide researchers and clinicians with state-of-the art research findings, presented by experts in the field, on the role of the family in the development and maintenance of psychopathology. This edited book is divided into 3 sections. The first addresses broader issues of theory and methodology and the second provides separate chapters relating to the role of the family in the development and maintenance of specific psychopathologies. A final section discusses the involvement of the family in treatment and prevention.

"This remarkable book provides exceptionally wide-ranging and incisive coverage of the interplay among family processes and the development of psychopathology from multiple perspectives that are essential to advancing the field of developmental psychopathology. The accessible and up-to-date analysis and synthesis of developmental psychopathology by internationally renowned scientists will, no doubt, make this book required reading for broad audience, including undergraduate and graduate students, academicians, and practitioners and policy-makers." -Patrick Davies, University of Rochester, NY, USA "A much needed contribution. This volume provides a comprehensive and critical examination of theory and research relating to psychopathology and the family.
