Child and Adolescent Psychopathology: A Casebook provides an abundance of realistic cases in assessing and treating child psychopathologies. Students are first 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.
