Search for: What is Child Psychopathology? Factors complicating the study of child psychopathology Since modern views of mental illness began to emerge in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, there has been far less attention given to the study of child psychopathology than psychopathology in adults.

Fortunately, psychiatrists do not think this way. Recently interest in child psychopathology has increased. Another factor is that there are issues present concerning the conceptualization and definition of psychopathology in children continue to be debated. As you come to learn about child psychopathology, you will see how much overlap really does occur and why this is such a complication. There is also a problem that distinct boundaries between many commonly occurring childhood difficulties and those problems that become labeled as disorders are not easily drawn.

There is also a growing recognition that all current diagnostic categories of child psychopathology are heterogeneous with respect to etiology and outcome, and will need to be broken down into subtypes, as you will see with the disorders mentioned on this page. It has also become increasingly evident that most forms of child psychopathology cannot be attributed to a single unitary cause. Some disorders cannot be linked to a single gene or a single event in life.

The many causes and outcomes of child psychopathology operate in dynamic and interactive ways over time which makes it hard to disentangle them. Many of these unsubstantiated theories have existed in both the popular and scientific literature, one example is the misconception that over-stimulation in the classroom causes insanity.

First, many young people experience significant mental health problems that interfere with normal development and functioning. Second, a significant proportion of children do not grow out of their childhood difficulties, although the ways in which these difficulties are expressed change in both form and severity over time. Third, recent social changes and conditions may place children at increasing risk for the development of disorders and also for the development of more severe problems at younger ages.

Fourth, for a majority of children who experience mental health problems, these problems go unidentified. Fifth, a majority of children with mental health problems who go unidentified and unassisted often end up in the criminal justice or mental health system as young adults.

They are at greater risk of dropping our of school and of not being fully functional members of society. Finally, a significant number of children in North America are being subjected to maltreatment and chronic maltreatment during childhood that is associated with psychopathology in children and later in adults.

Boyle et al. Many other epidemiological studies have reported similar rates of prevalence. Age differences Some studies of nonclinical samples of children have found a general decline in overall problems with age, whereas similar studies of clinical samples have found an opposite trend.

Socioeconomic Status Although most children with mental health problems are from the middle class, mental health problems are overrepresented among the very poor. Authored by: Dr. Caleb Lack.
