Written with the whole child in mind, this text presents disorders in the context of typical development and developmental pathways, providing a meaningful framework to promote students' learning and a practical, true-to-life approach for organizing the course. For each disorder (across descriptions of clinical presentation, course, and treatment), Parritz and Troy emphasize the continuity between typical and atypical development; risk and resilience; complex models of psychopathology; children in relationships over time; children in larger social contexts (e.g., neighborhoods); and the holistic nature of development (e.g., thinking about the child's abilities and strengths as well as his or her disorder). Updated with more coverage of neuroscience research and greater emphasis on the multiple environments in which children are embedded, this edition continues to reflect the most up-to-date understanding of child and adolescent psychopathology and empirically supported treatment.

    • Multi-factor explanations of disorders (encompassing biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors) are examined in detailed analyses of etiologies, assessments, diagnoses, developmental pathways, and interventions.
    • Themed feature boxes -- The Child in Context, Clinical Perspectives, Risk and Resilience, and Emerging Science -- support the book's overall approach and highlight important topics of interest to students.
    • With this text, students learn to think about disorders in the same way that caring adults think about the children and the disorders they encounter every day -- in terms of an individual child who is coping with distress and dysfunction.
    • Extensive use of case stories brings concepts to life.
    • A section at the beginning of each chapter summarizes the developmental tasks and challenges experienced by typically developing children that are especially relevant given the disorders discussed in the chapter.
    • Chapters are sequenced to reflect the typical course of development. This sequencing allows students to consider specific disorders and sets of disorders that occur in a particular developmental period in proximity and relation to one another. It also allows for an ongoing focus on the constructs of risk and resiliency, and provides a basis for coherent discussions of early-occurring disorders as risk factors for later-occurring disorders.
    • A new final chapter offers insight into developmental psychopathology and the transition to adulthood (including personality disorders and psychotic disorders).
    • A new integrated Chapter 5, "Disorders of Early Development and Attachment," covers material previously presented separately in Chapters 5 and 6.
    • This edition presents expanded coverage of neuroscience research, including brain development and function, behavior genetics (gene-by-environment processes and interactions, differential sensitivity), and physiological factors that influence the development and course of disorders.
    • In keeping with the text's focus on the whole child, the new edition features an expanded emphasis on understanding the multiple environments in which children are embedded (relationships, families, peer groups, cultures).
    • New boxes throughout the text explore new research and compelling clinical concerns.
