When theories are integrated with ecological influences and developmental levels, behaviors are understood within a rich contextual presentation. The ultimate goal in understanding patterns of abnormal child behaviors is the ability to bridge theoretical assumptions with developmental contexts and then consider whether this behavior is appropriate or deviant based on the child’s development level.

Although clinicians working with adult and child populations share many of the same competencies and expertise, there are several issues unique to clinicians who work with children 27 28 • Abnormal Child Psychology and adolescents. Child clinicians must also make these decisions in the light of their understanding of which behaviors and interventions are developmentally appropriate. 2.
