The influence of the family on individual behavior has long been debated but has never received comprehensive coverage in the psychopathology literature. Providing a much-needed, exhaustive look at the research in this area, Family Psychopathology shows how many individual psychopathologies stem from external (contextual or relational) rather than internal (neurological or physiological) conditions. Chapters describe a variety of dysfunctional patterns and explore how they lead to different kinds of individual, marital, and family disorders. Preventive measures and treatment approaches are critically examined.
