Abnormal Child Psychology Prof. Fishman
Book of Notes:
Lesson 1:
Research in abnormal child psych seeks to address:
· Defining what constitutes normal and abnormal behavior
· Identifying the causes and correlates of abnormal child behavior
· Making predictions about long term outcomes
· Developing and evaluating methods for treatment (p.3)
Features that distinguish child and adult disorders:
· When adults seek services for children, its often unclear whose problem it is
· Many problems fail to show expected developmental progress
· Many behaviors are not entirely abnormal
· Interventions for children are intended to promote further development, rather than restore level of functioning
Questions to ask:
At what age did this begin?
At what age was this noticed?
Is this a psychological disorder?
Is this developmental? Is the child meeting milestones?
What level of competence do we see?
What are the symptoms?
X Historical views and breakthroughs
X Emergence of social conscience
X Evolving forms of treatment
Early Biological, Psychological, and Behavioral theorists:

Developmental overview (p. 34)
