Overview

Child and Adolescent Psychopathology: A Casebook provides an abundance of realistic cases in assessing and treating child psychopathologies. In Part One, students are introduced to "A Case Called Jeremy," a six-year-old hyperactive and non-compliant child, raised by his mother and maternal grandmother. Using Jeremy as a guide, students are exposed to a three-stage model of case formulation, and gain an awareness of the competencies and knowledge required to successfully accomplish the goals of each stage in the process. Developing case formulations for Jeremy based on different theoretical perspectives, students gain an increased appreciation of how case formulations evolve based on five different theoretical perspectives: psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, family systems, and attachment/parenting. In Part Two, fourteen cases present dynamic illustrations of the complex and comorbid nature of childhood disorders. Each case is accompanied by a discussion of relevant evidence-based treatments and provocative questions designed to link case-based information to theory and research. Supplemental information provided in the Appendix will be of particular interest to advanced students in child assessment and child treatment.
