In 1910, Karl Jaspers wrote a seminal essay on morbid jealousy in which he laid the foundation for the psychopathological phenomenology that through his work and the work of Hans Gruhle and Kurt Schneider, among others, would become the hallmark of the Heidelberg school of psychiatry. In General Psychopathology, his most important contribution to the Heidelberg school, Jaspers critiques the scientific aspirations of psychotherapy, arguing that in the realm of the human, the explanation of behavior through the observation of regularity and patterns in it ( Erklärende Psychologie) must be supplemented by an understanding of the "meaning-relations" experienced by human beings ( Verstehende Psychologie).

Developmental psychopathology involves the study and prediction of maladaptive behaviors and processes across time. This new edition of the Handbook furthers the goal of integrating developmental processes into the search for adequate categorical systems for understanding child mental health problems and the trajectories that lead to adult psychopathology. The editors respond to contemporary challenges to place individual behavior in a biological and social context. By including a range of approaches, this volume encompasses the complexity of the growing developmental literature. At the same time, it includes the most recent efforts to produce concise child diagnostic categories. In a thoroughgoing revision of the first edition of this classic text and reference, published by Plenum in 1990, the editors have assembled a distinguished roster of contributors to address such topics as issues and theories; context and mental health; biology and mental illness; disorders of early childhood; disruptive behavior disorders; emotional disorders; control disorders; pervasive developmental disorders; and trauma disorders. Clinicians, researchers, and students in such diverse fields as developmental and clinical psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, social work, and educational and counseling psychology will benefit from the concepts, investigations, and challenges presented in this state-of-the-art compendium.

This Third Edition of Adult Psychopathology and Diagnosis reflects both the rapid advancement in the understanding of psychopathological states and the ongoing effort to organize the field into a systematic and unified body of knowledge. It incorporates the nomenclature of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IVTM) to present an integration of the empirical data and diagnostic criteria and identify the empirical underpinnings of specific disorders and their diagnoses. Mirroring major emerging trends and issues in psychopathology, this Third Edition features three new overview chapters: "Dimensional versus Categorical Classification," "Structured Interviewing and DSM Classification," and "Genetic Basis and Psychopathology." New diagnostic categories—somatoform disorders and sleep disorders—have been added due to the development of important new information and the refinement of diagnostic categories; and the section on special topics includes a new presentation on multidimensional assessment strategies. Each chapter begins with a discussion of the clinical picture of the disorder and moves on to diagnostic criteria, major theories of etiology, and issues of assessment and measurement. A special section at the end of each chapter delves into an emerging body of data describing similarities and differences in the manifestation of psychiatric disorders among racial and ethnic minority groups and differences associated with gender. Adult Psychopathology and Diagnosis, Third Edition is the most comprehensive and up-to-date textbook of its kind for graduate-level courses in clinical psychiatry, psychology, and psychiatric social work. It is also an excellent reference source for academicians, clinicians, and other professionals in the field.

Like its predecessor it could serve as a primary text for courses in adult psychopathology and diagnosis." —Child & Family Behavior Therapy on the Second Edition "Provides a useful introduction to the principles of the DSM-III-R classification system and its application in clinical practice to familiarize those psychiatrists in training who do not use the system in clinical practice." —Medical Teacher on the Second Edition "The quality of writing is generally high, and some chapters are gems." —American Journal of Psychiatry on the First Edition "Will serve well as the primary textbook for graduate coursework intended to lay the psychopathological foundation of clinical training. . . . Will also serve . . . as a . . . guide to research in the various disorder categories, as a textbook for residents in psychiatry and students in other mental health professions, and as a diagnostic reference manual. . . .
