Abnormal Child Psychology (with CengageNOW, Personal Tutor, InfoTrac 1-Semester Printed Access Card)

Through their thoughtful and accurate balance of developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology, Eric Mash and David Wolfe’s ABNORMAL CHILD PSYCHOLOGY remains the most authoritative, scholarly book in today’s abnormal child psychology market. Appropriate for novice and expert alike, this book traces the developmental course of each disorder and shows how biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interact with a child’s environment. This MEDIA EDITION gives students a chance to see how troubled children behave in their homes, in their schools, and in their communities, reinforcing the author’s commitment to providing students with access to real children in their natural settings. Through the power of CengageNOW, students now have access to an unparalleled personal learning system. Since one of the best ways to introduce students to a particular problem of childhood or adolescence is to first describe a real child, the authors begin each chapter with engaging first-person accounts and case histories of a child with a particular disorder. This child is then referred to throughout the entire chapter, illustrating the categorical and dimensional approaches used to describe disorders, as well as bringing life to the theories Mash and Wolfe present. Embracing today’s world with leading-edge coverage of the DSM-IV-TR and dimensional approaches to classification, Mash and Wolfe’s comprehensive introduction covers many topics: evidence-based assessment and treatment, contemporary research and cutting-edge theories related to the predominantly inattentive ADHD subtype, early-onset and the developmental propensity model of conduct disorder, the triple vulnerability model of anxiety, the tripartite model in children, depression, and autism.

    I am currently using this book for a course on psychological disorders of childhood. If you want to save $100+ by purchasing the third edition vs. the fourth edition… go for it! Hardly any changes have been made between the two editions. It’s an interesting read – boring at times, but overall, it keeps my attention. They’re short chapters (30-40 pages each), but they’re full of information.

    Don’t use beyond undergraduate education!, March 17, 2008
    This review is from: Abnormal Child Psychology (with CengageNOW, Personal Tutor, InfoTrac 1-Semester Printed Access Card) (Hardcover)

    This is an undergraduate text — extremely basic — on Abnormal Child Psychology, but it does not provide much in terms of helpful information beyond explaining the basics of some childhood disorders. It may be a fine introduction for those beginning to learn about abnormal psych (although even then, I’d recommend something a bit more advanced, if the population is above Freshman level in College), but it certainly is not written for those studying childhood disorders at a clinical level. There are no “norm-references” or “developmental milestones” charts/tables/etc. There is very little substantial information beyond what one might get in a basic abnormal psychology text or a general psych text.

    The upshot: if using for undergrads, use caution. If using for graduate-level courses, DON’T.
