About this book

Developmental Perspectives on Craniofacial Problems presents a developmental approach to psychological research on craniofacial anomalies. Craniofacial anomalies represent one of the most commonly occurring birth defects, and although recent surgical advances have been substantial, little has changed in over forty years with regard to the assumption that facial disfigurement must result in psychological problems. This book advances current understanding of the psychological impact of craniofacial anomalies by reevaluating the prevailing view in light of the most current perspectives and findings in developmental psychology. Distinguished scholars have applied their expertise in social, emotional, and personality development to understanding the psychological development of children with craniofacial anomalies, covering a wide range of topics in developmental psychology.
