“This is an important addition to the field of child and adolescent mental health. It coalesces concepts from a number of historically based endeavors from a wide variety of disciplines including embryology, genetics, and the neurosciences, as well as psychoanalysis, psychiatry, and psychology, and provides examples of the synergistic contributions from previously disparate fields that have resulted in the emergence of this new discipline of developmental psychopathology.”  (Doody’s, 30 August 2013)

In this second edition, Beauchaine and Hinshaw have once again presented a state-of-the field compendium on developmental psychopathology.
The equal emphasis on specific vulnerability and risk factors that cut across disorders as well as the more traditional focus on specific disorders provides readers with two important ways to assimilate knowledge in this growing and fast-changing field.
A primary strength of this new edition continues to be its strong emphasis on multiple levels of analysis, with a significant focus on genetic and other biological vulnerabilities and their interactions with environmental risk factors and contextual influences.
This volume is a "must have" for anyone interested in a developmental psychopathology approach to child psychopathology, whether they be graduate students at the start of their careers or senior researchers and clinicians.
Robert J. McMahon, Ph.D., Simon Fraser University and the Child & Family Research institute

The second edition of Child and Adolescent Psychopathology brings together the work of leading researchers who use a modern developmental approach to psychopathology, elucidating basic processes and developmental experiences that, when they go awry, produce psychopathology. In addition to familiarizing the reader with the disorders, they update them on our current understanding of several mental conditions from which children suffer. Editors Beauchaine and Hinshaw have compiled a text that is invaluable to researchers, clinicians, and students concerned with youth mental health.
Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, Yale University
