This casebook provides an abundance of realistic cases illustrating issues in assessing and treating child psychopathologies. Although traditional core textbooks often present short scenarios to illustrate key concepts, this casebook provides students with an opportunity to apply skills in case formulation and diagnosis using fully developed actual practice cases. A major goal of this casebook is to assist students in developing their decision-making and problem-solving skills in face of the full complexities of childhood psychopathologies. It's only through exploring realistic, complex cases that students learn to integrate the theory and research-based assessments and interventions they've been learning from textbooks and previous course work.
"Wilmshurst exhibits a firm grasp, understanding, and presentation of a broad range of current issues in the field of psychopathology. The case examples are excellent and bring to life issues typically encountered in 'real life' cases. The variety in cases was also appealing. Students (at any level) reading this book will surely learn a lot about child psychopathology."
"The major strength of this book is the case studies and the way they are integrated with literature (about diagnosis, associated features, and empirically supported treatments) and with the raw clinical data (such as scores from assessment instruments). Additional strengths include the attention to empirically supported treatments, along with a variety of different theoretical perspectives in terms of case conceptualization. This book will fill an important niche."
