The next theme is a natural progression from the first two themes and emphasizes the importance of recognizing that • maladaptive behavior exists on a continuum of severity (Theme 3). Therefore, the field of developmental psychopathology has emphasized three of the five themes that provide the foundation for this text on abnormal behavior from a developmental perspective.

As theorists’ understanding of child development increased, more intricate and advanced models were constructed to capture the complex nature of developmental change.
