Together, the four volumes in this groundbreaking handbook constitute the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary analysis of the biopsychosocial factors that impact normal and abnormal infant mental development. Assembled under the auspices of the World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH)--the leading international organization in infant development--it brings together contributions by the world's leading infant mental health researchers, clinicians, and scholars, who share their findings and observations on the gamut of psychological, social, emotional, cultural, and biological factors that influence normal and abnormal mental development in very young children.
