Description

This important volume presents a definitive review of the origins and implications of developmental psychopathology and what has been learned about the phenomenon of psychosocial resilience in diverse populations at risk. Chapters by distinguished investigators in clinical psychology, psychiatry, and child development, many of whose work led to the new developmental model of psychopathology, provide a unique review of research on vulnerability and resistance to disorder spanning from infancy to adulthood. The volume is a tribute to Professor Norman Garmezy, a pioneer in developmental psychopathology and a renowned researcher of resilience in children at risk. Highlighted throughout the volume is Professor Garmezy's theme that it is as important to understand successful outcomes as it is to study pathology in the search for better treatments and the prevention of developmental behavioural problems.show more

Review quote

'I can think of no single other volume that presents as many critical theorists or as much research on this topic. For this reason alone, it would be a significant contribution to the growing interest in the topic of developmental psychopathology and is, therefore, recommended to the interested reader ... given its scope and importance, the volume makes a valuable contribution to our growing understanding.'
