Child and Adolescent Psychopathology: A Casebook / Edition 3

Fully updated for DSM-5, the Third Edition of Child and Adolescent Psychopathology provides 24 real-life cases to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and tools they will need as practicing clinicians. As they explore realistic, complex cases, students learn to integrate theory into research-based assessments and interventions. Each case provides opportunities to practice clinical skills in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood disorders from a number of theoretical perspectives and at various levels of interest and expertise. Designed to be used with a child psychopathology text, this practical casebook covers current trends in the field and promotes an understanding of the role of risk and protective factors in assessment and treatment.
