Remarkably, the linkage between personality and psychopathology, although extensive, has not been underscored in the larger tomes on these subjects. In the last decade there have been many books on personality, adult psychopathology, and child psychopathology, but none seems to have related the three in an integrated fashion. In part, this three-volume Comprehensive Handbook of Personality and Psychopathology (CHOPP), with the first volume on Personality and Everyday Functioning, the second on Adult Psychopathology, and the third on Child Psychopathology, is devoted to remedying this gap in the literature. Another unique feature of CHOPP appears in the volumes on Adult Psychopathology and Child Psychopathology, where impact of adult and child psychopathology on family, work, school, and peers is highlighted, in addition to the relation of specific psychopathology to normal development. Given the marked importance of such impact, contributors were asked to delineate the negative impact of psychopathology on the individual’s daily environments.
