Neuropsychological Correlates of Childhood and Adolescent Internalized Disorders: Mood and Anxiety Disorders

  • Margaret Semrud-Clikeman
  • Phyllis Anne Teeter Ellison


This chapter explores childhood mood and anxiety disorders within a transactional model. Genetic, prenatal, and postnatal history will be discussed in light of how these factors interact with neuropsychological, executive, cognitive, perceptual, and memory functioning. Moreover, the impact these factors have on the child's functioning (i.e., family, school, and social interactions) will be discussed within a transactional framework; that is, social and familial factors play a role in environmentally induced mood and anxiety disorders which, in turn, interfere with social interactions and interpersonal well-being.
