Brain, Mind, and Developmental Psychopathology in Childhood

Edited by Elena Garralda and Jean-Philippe Raynaud

Brain, Mind, and Developmental Psychopathology in Childhood, part of the International Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions' book series "Working with Children & Adolescents" edited by Elena Garralda and Jean-Philippe Raynaud, aims to help advance knowledge on the connections between brain, mind, and development psychopathology in children and young people, an area of high relevance across different contexts around the world. It outlines brain mechanisms underlying children’s ability to regulate behavior, emotions, interactions with others, responses to stress, and child psychiatric disorders.

The book contains expert views supported by empirical evidence, and there is an emphasis on drawing out the clinical implications. It brings together knowledge from a variety of disciplines on bodily and brain processes that underlie developmental and psychiatric disorders in children and young people.

Chapters include conceptual and empirical discussion of the biological and psychological influences on developmental psychopathology in childhood, clinical updates focusing on the biological underpinnings of individual child neuropsychiatric disorders as well as integrating biological and psychological therapies in child mental health. The book also discusses broader psychological/social problems, with chapters on the effects of child maltreatment in the developing brain, an update on understanding and management of self-harm, and advocacy papers on learning disorders and child and adolescent mental health.

In Brain, Mind, and Developmental Psychopathology in Childhood, a number of the most distinguished international researchers in their areas share current ideas about and future perspectives on how to understand the biological and psychosocial background for psychopathologic conditions in developing children. It underscores the need for both a holistic and multidisciplinary approach. The book considers the future of the field, including topics such as a hope for a more detailed knowledge of how the brain works, similarities and differences between the female and the male brain, and how the genes interact with the environment when the brain is shaped during fetal life and during the long period of brain maturation in the first 25 years of life. An excellent book—highly recommended.
