Systematic, authoritative, and timely, this is an outstanding reference and text for anyone working with or studying adolescents. More than 50 leading experts comprehensively review current knowledge on adolescent externalizing disorders, internalizing disorders, developmental disorders, personality and health-related disorders, gender identity and sexual disorders, and maltreatment and trauma. Chapters identify the core features of each disorder; explore its etiology, course, and outcome; address diagnostic issues specific to adolescents; and describe effective assessment and treatment approaches. The book also provides an integrative conceptual framework for understanding both healthy and maladaptive adolescent development.

"Unlike problems of early childhood, adolescent problems are frequently seen as already 'fixed' and too late to change. This volume repeatedly challenges this misconception. Key experts in the field thoroughly address current research on prevalent adolescent disorders and evaluate the evidence base for existing interventions. Going beyond typical texts, the chapters deal with how development and health interact over time to present both challenges and opportunities for change at this pivotal life stage. This is an excellent text for courses in adolescent psychopathology and abnormal psychology, particularly as it takes cutting-edge research concerns and grounds them effectively in existing knowledge."--Bonnie Leadbeater, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Victoria, Canada

"Wolfe and Mash bring their professional and editorial expertise to this superb handbook. Within an integrative biopsychosocial framework, the outstanding contributors provide comprehensive coverage of adolescent disorders and interventions. Chapters effectively describe the state of knowledge about this unique and challenging period of development. This volume is a tour de force that is exceptionally grounded in research and well written for students as well as for fledgling and seasoned professionals."--Michael C. Roberts, PhD, Clinical Child Psychology Program, University of Kansas

"A scholarly, evidence-based, and up-to-date work. Written by a virtual 'who's who' of experts on adolescent mental health, each chapter reviews the latest research in a manner that is simultaneously accessible and practical. I highly recommend this book for students, practitioners, and researchers."--Robert E. Emery, PhD, Center for Children, Families, and the Law, and Department of Psychology, University of Virginia

"Knowledge and interest in psychopathology during adolescence is exploding, and this timely volume provides an excellent overview of this rapidly growing field. Chapters by a stellar group of authors systematically address state-of-the-art science and practice for a wide array of specific disorders and behavioral health problems faced by adolescents and their families and communities. An invaluable resource for clinicians, scholars, educators, and advanced students in diverse behavioral health disciplines."--Ann S. Masten, PhD, Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota

"Until fairly recently, adolescence was a relatively neglected period in developmental and clinical research: scholars tended to 'infer up' from childhood or 'infer down' from adulthood. This volume testifies to the changing state of the field. Its depth and breadth suggest that research on adolescent psychopathology and treatment has at last come of age. Wolfe and Mash have assembled an impressive group of experts in this excellent reference for developing and seasoned professionals alike. Would be a good choice as a text for graduate courses in adolescent psychopathology and treatment."--Sharon L. Foster, PhD, California School of Professional Psychology, Alliant International University
