Reflecting the latest research from the field, CASEBOOK IN CHILD BEHAVIOR DISORDERS, 5e vividly illustrates the rich and arresting nature of disorders that first manifest themselves in childhood while also showing how a child's developmental patterns shape the expression of each disorder. Every complex case demonstrates how each disorder is expressed--from presentation through diagnosis and treatment. Throughout the book, the author explores the DSM-IV-TR criteria and highlights the interaction between developmental and environmental influences for each disorder. Offering a wealth of cases, the Fifth Edition enables learners to put their knowledge into practice. Unique mixed cases challenge readers to draw from what they have learned to come up with their own diagnosis.
