Editorial Reviews

Review

"Child psychopathology experts Mash and Barkley have 'covered the waterfront' in this second edition of their comprehensive text. Empirically based chapters cover the full spectrum of child mental health, including behavior disorders, mood and anxiety disorders, autism, schizophrenia, learning disorders, and children at high risk. This book could serve as a full course in abnormal child psychology and should be on the bookshelf of all those in related fields, whether students, faculty members, or practitioners. The substantive introduction--almost a stand-alone text on developmental psychopathology--sets out the developmental systems framework that is used to integrate research findings from disparate professional disciplines and theoretical perspectives. Written by scholars with widely acknowledged expertise, each chapter includes a detailed description of the characteristics, diagnosis, epidemiology, prognosis, and multiple models of etiology of the syndrome at hand, as well as an exhaustive bibliography."--Mina K. Dulcan, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Northwestern University School of Medicine

"The publication of this revised second edition attests to the persistent demand for a volume of this type. Like its predecessor, the book gives evenhanded coverage to biological, cognitive, contextual, familial, and genetic variables in child psychopathology. In a field that is still in the early stages of development, this text offers a complete description of the current state of the science."--Gerald R. Patterson, PhD, Oregon Social Learning Center, Eugene, Oregon

"This is the second edition of a unique and deservedly popular text, which nests the current disorder-based taxonomy of child psychopathology within a developmental and multisystems framework. The volume comprises authoritative, extensively referenced, evidence-based reviews covering all the major childhood disorders. It is essential reading for practitioners and graduate students in all disciplines relevant to child mental health, including psychology, child psychiatry, and developmental pediatrics."--John Scott Werry, MD, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, University of Auckland, New Zealand

"This text is unequaled in its attention to current research and theory on child psychopathology."--Elizabeth Hayden, PhD, Psychology Department, University of Western Ontario

Format: Hardcover
The previous edition of this book was required reading for a Developmental Psychopathology course I completed as part of my graduate training program in educational psychology. Another more "reader-friendly" text was also required; however, I found myself referencing this book often as it is probably the definitive source of empirically based information in this subject area. I highly recommend this book for graduate students or professionals accustomed to reviewing research literature. Do not purchase this book if you are unfamiliar with chapters outlined by subsections with titles such as epidemiology, etiology, diagnostic considerations, differential diagnosis, comorbidity, and developmental outcomes.

I agree wholeheartedly with the product description and what the reviewers said. As a master's student in psychology, this is the most advanced text in psychology I have ever read. It requires patience, determination, and i would say an underlying love of the subject. however, if you want to know about the disorders and research on them, this is the book.

Format: Hardcover
This book is nearly impossible to read. You will read a sentence and then there will literally be a paragraph of citation and you have to find where the sentence continues. I didn't read it the whole semester because it is just IMPOSSIBLE to gain information from. For the final exam, I did use it a bit to review some sections we were told to look at, but the way this book is written is very useless. It's written in similar to a research paper style so it is again IMPOSSIBLE to remember information for the test. When you read a section, it will reference past studies that were conducted, give you a lot of statistics and such. I was very upset that I even bought the book. I feel as though if you take good notes during the class, you might even be able to make it through the class without the book. The book just drags on an on and most chapters are 40 - 50 pages, which isn't THAT bad, but in this book...you'll make it through a few pages and then just not be able to read anymore. Overall...the book isn't very helpful. Just take good notes. I'd give the book zero stars, but you can't...

TERRIBLE! This book is one big research paper, there are extensive citations in almost every sentence! It is so hard to read one sentence, on top of the fact that each sentence already doesn't make sense. While reading the first chapter, I realized that the author was just repeating the same sentence over and over but with different terrible word play. If you can find ways around buying this book, do so!

This book was required for one of my college psychology classes. For those working with children in any kinds of settings, this is a great reference. I give 5 stars for being informative, but only gave 3 stars because I thought it was a little cut and dry. I kept this book for 5 years after I graduated college.
