This course examines psychopathology from infancy through early adolescence. The paradigm of developmental psychopathology, or articulating the role of time and change in childhood disturbances, is an important focus of the class. Using this frame, the following areas are examined: clinical assessment of psychosocial problems in childhood; diagnostic systems for conceptualizing childhood psychopathology; and understanding disturbances of childhood through the lenses of intrapsychic, interpersonal, and the historical context. While students doing child and family therapy are encouraged to consider this class, those without a child or adolescent in their caseload may participate.
