about

This book presents a developmental perspective on the psychopathology of offspring of depressed mothers. A primary theme of this study is the interplay of factors in child (developmental stage, gender, temperament) and environment (depressed mother's symptomatic behavior and family functioning) as a key to psychiatric and psychosocial problems in children. This enlightening study closely follows children and their families through every stage of childhood. This book demonstrates just how influential a depressed mother is to the development of her child.
