Case Studies in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology
A supplementary text for upper-level undergraduate/beginning graduate-level courses in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology. Also appropriate for courses in psychiatric social work, nursing, and counseling. Although there are many case study books that focus on adults diagnosed with various psychological disorders, this is the first casebook devoted exclusively to major child and adolescent disorders and their common treatments. Consistent with the standard texts available, it organizes disorders according to the DSM-IV, and allows students to "diagnose" and consider treatment options before seeing how a case was actually diagnosed and treated. It provides detailed descriptions of a range of clinical problems affecting children and adolescents, and illustrates some of the ways these problems can be examined and treated.
