Courses: Developmental Psychopathology (PSYCB551001)

Spring 2008

Class Number: 1278
An examination of research and theory addressing the origins, course,
and consequences of maladaptive functioning in children, adolescents
and families. Major forms of childhood and adolescent psychopathology
(e.g., antisocial behavior, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,
and depression) are examined and family-based risk factors for
psychopathology, such as parenting quality and marital conflict, are
explored. An important focus of the course is on the identification
of risk and protective factors for psychopathology. Topics covered
include contrasting models of psychopathology; assessment and
classification of childhood disorders; models of individual and family
risk; social and cultural factors influencing the development of
psychopathology; and therapeutic efforts to prevent or ameliorate disorders.
