"Abnormal Child Psychology: A Developmental Perspective is organized around five recurrent themes that emphasize sources of information required to understand the nature and development of maladaptive behavior, namely: the predictability of normal development; maladaptive behaviors as deviations from the norm; severity as a continuum; transactional nature of internal and external influences; and the use of multiple theoretical perspectives. Within this framework, Wilmshurst opens each chapter with case studies that illustrate the nature and course of child problems as they appear at different developmental stages (early to late childhood) and levels of severity (mild deviations to more severe pathological outcomes). This is an ideal text for upper undergraduate and master's-level students."--BOOK JACKET.
