Description : In this revision of their current and scholarly text, authors Eric Mash and David Wolfe achieve a balance between developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology. The book traces the developmental course of each disorder and shows how biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interact with a child's environment.
Description : A briefer (18 vs. 22 chs.), more applied version of Coon's Introduction to Psychology. While covering all of the core concepts of the course, the book's numerous pedagogical features (including Coon's hallmark SQ3R format) as well the author's informal, engaging writing style make this book exceptionally accessible, relevant, and motivating to the typical student. This edition offers format flexibility with paperback, hardcover, and looseleaf versions available.
