Cicchetti, Dante
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n6 p387-45 Dec 1987
Considers it inappropriate to focus on discrete symptomatology to infer presence of nascent or incipient infant psychopathology. Asserts that disorders in infancy are best conceptualized as relational psychopathologies, that is, as consequences of dysfunction in parent-child-environment system. Uses research in child maltreatment to illustrate the developmental psychopathology perspective as applied to relational disorders. (Author/KS)
