Editorial: Boredom and developmental psychopathology

Argyris Stringaris

Abstract

Adolescent disruptive behaviours have been the focus of scientific study for decades. However, this work has often ignored the experiences that provide the setting for those behaviours and the states of mind that precede them. These have largely remained the concern of novelists and philosophers. Here I discuss the various reasons why boredom and its associated features should be at the forefront of future research in psychopathology.

We hope you enjoy the full editorial of this Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry Issue, which is free on the Wiley Online Library.
