Sample text

Part of the reason is historical: Family systemic and environmental views dominated the field for much of the 20th century, and recent work on a range of psychobiological processes is not always featured in reviews and texts (Boyce, 2006). Another issue pertains to explanatory power: We now know that without understanding the potential effects of genes, physiological processes, and biological risk factors on psychopathology, we have little hope of understanding the most severe forms of disorder.

The phenomena under consideration are too complex, too dynamic, and too multifaceted to be understood by focusing exclusively on psychobiological processes, family factors, peer processes, or cultural factors in isolation. Performing the necessary kinds of investigations often mandates large scale, complex, and interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary work, necessitating collaborations across traditional academic boundaries. Although such collaboration is not simple, these kinds of efforts are undoubtedly where the payoffs will lie (for a key example, see Caspi, Hariri, Holmes, Uher, & Moffitt, 2010).

Importantly, current models are moving away from the idea that certain genetic configurations are inevitably ‘‘risk’’ factors for psychopathology. Some, in fact, may yield better-than-expected outcomes in optimal contexts. , Belsky & Pluess, 2009). Equifinality and Multifinality As suggested earlier, there is overwhelming evidence that multiple pathways exist to both health and illness. It is a myth to think that all individuals displaying symptoms of a given mental disorder ‘‘got there’’ through similar mechanisms and processes.
