Gene-environment Transactions in Developmental Psychopathology : The Role in Intervention Research
about this item
?This volume provides a careful and sophisticated exploration of the issues involved in applying interventions, or experimental manipulations, to understand gene-environment transactions (GEX) – that is, transactions of gene and environment, including interactions, correlations, interdependence, and also gene-gene interactions. As detailed in the book, this framework has multiple and potentially transforming implications for interventions directed at developmental psychopathology. In addition, this volume examines the converse model and explores the possibility that interventions can be powerful research tools for exploring GEX. As explained in the book, well-designed interventions may be seen as experimental manipulations of theorized causal influences on psychopathology and offer excellent opportunities to test the validity of those causal processes.
