≪Organizer Abstract≫
The objective of this thematic session is to investigate transgenerational aspects of psychopathology on the basis of the recent advancement of developmental psychopathology. Developmental Psychopathology considers individual psychopathology as a form of deviance from the normal developmental pathways; hence, manifestation of psychopathology is understood as a dynamic entity in the developmental continuum rather than a static category. A number of literatures posit sequences of familial psychopathology and examine the mechanism of such intergenerational transmission; genetic contributions as well as environmental influences through parenting practice, attachment bonding, and modelling for learning are among a few etiological factors parents may interplay. In this thematic session, the authors discuss intergenerational transmission of psychopathology with particular focus on three major psychopathologies: Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD), and Depressive Disorders (Depression). To elucidate the mechanism of transmission, the authors will discuss both risk and protective factors by utilizing their recent empirical studies.
