The Role of Theory in Developmental Psychopathology Models of development, psychopathology, and treatment allow us to organize our clinical observations of children and our research findings into coherent, informative accounts. In this chapter, the cases of Max and Maggie will illustrate key concepts related to normal developmental processes, the emergence of disorder, and intervention goals and strategies. For introductory purposes, the sections on Max and Maggie present somewhat simplified examples; by the end of this chapter and throughout the next chapter, the models will be increasingly complex, integrated, and realistic.

Certain severe forms of mental retardation are examples of this type of psychopathology. For most disorders of childhood and adolescence, this too-simple model of physical cause and psychopathological effect can be dismissed (Courchesne, Townsend, & Chase, 1995; Mash & Dozois, 1996; Sameroff, 1993). More complicated models suggest that there are inborn or acquired vulnerabilities to disorders— including genetic abnormalities, structural pathologies, and biochemical disturbances—which may lead to psychological distress and dysfunction (Hooper & Tramontana, 1997; Schore, 1996, 1997).
