This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to explore our current understanding regarding how development in the family context during a youth's adolescent years sets the stage for the adulthood that lies just beyond. It then discusses the overarching framework that unites the contributions to this volume—the developmental psychopathology perspective—and the criteria used to select these contributions. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords: development; family; adolescence; adulthood; developmental psychopathology
