This volume provides a forum for interdisciplinary perspectives in the emerging discipline of developmental psychopathology. The goal is to elucidate the four central principles of this discipline: the application of classical developmental theory in work with atypical populations; the delineation of insights from atypical populations that inform developmental theory; the integration of methods and theories from various social science disciplines; and the description of implications for interventions and social policy. So far, there have been few efforts to present each of these principles of developmental psychopathology within a single, unifying framework. Illustrating these central principles across a range of state-of-the-art research programs, this unique collection of papers will be invaluable for students, current researchers, and clinicians seeking a sound understanding of this rapidly emerging social science discipline.

• Provides the richest compilation of state-of-the-art descriptions of the central bodies of work in developmental psychopathology • It describes and defines this emerging field, linking the various bodies of work to four central themes of developmental psychopathology: (a.) application of classical developmental theory in work with atypical populations; (b.) delineation of insights from atypical population that inform developmental theory, (c.) integration of methods and theories from various social science disciplines, and (d.) description of implications for interventions and social policy. • It is the most authoritative collection available, given the fact that the authors are recognized authorities in their fields.
