J. Gibson, in a wonderful article on the nature of the stimulus, raised this issue over 50 years ago (Gibson, 1960). Clearly, what we measure in the environment may not be what the child perceives or even constructs about the environment. In some sense, then, our measurement of the environment reflects a perspective which may not be reflected by the child we study. So, for example, we measure the level of depression that the child’s mother reports about herself; however we do not measure the children’s perception or even their construction of their mother’s depression.

How about depression? It can be considered a yes-no disturbance, especially if we use a DSM-like classification system. On the other hand, it can be considered as a continuum, with the pathology classification 1 Toward the Development of the Science of Developmental Psychopathology representing one end of the continuum. Such problems continue to cause difficulties in the study of developmental psychopathology because of these sampling and classification issues. The classification issues have to do with many problems, including what should be considered an outcome measure.
