A Casebook

Fourth Edition (International Student Edition)


January 2018 | SAGE Publications, Inc
Child and Adolescent Psychopathology: A Casebook provides students with an opportunity to gain deeper insight into a wide range of disorders within the context of the diagnostic framework of the DSM-5. This supplemental textbook provides an abundance of "real life" cases which demonstrate methods in assessing and treating a wide spectrum of child and adolescent psychopathologies in a variety of settings. 

Each case presents an opportunity to practice and develop 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. The book features current trends in assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and research, and is an ideal hands-on resource for a child and adolescent psychopathology course.
