Child and Adolescent Psychopathology

January 25, 2014
Warning: format fail ahead.
Storify is a rogue fit in WordPress, and this attempt is a doomed experiment… I recommend immediate diversion to the original.
Unit of study for Master of School Leadership: is a field concerned with the nature, development and treatment of psychological disorders.
Here’s a reconstructed sequence of our 4 day exploration of theories; emphasis was placed on the broad contextual impact. Flexible approaches are emphasised.
Goals of study:
  • Understand complexity of wellbeing;
  • Raise awareness to “person-environment reciprocal transactions” (Prinstein, 2012, p.2);
  • Identify trajectories adversely affecting mental health;
  • Minimise impact on learning through informed application of knowledge – in particular, the interplay of risk and protective factors.

    The Italian criminologist Cesare Lombroso makes for an unlikely hero. In the late 1800s, Lombroso proposed that criminals were evolutionary throwbacks who could be identified by primitive features like sloping foreheads and large jaws, and he went on to posit an evolutionary hierarchy of the races, with northern Italians at its apex.
