This casebook illustrates the rich and arresting nature of disorders that first manifest themselves in childhood and shows how the child's developmental patterns shape the expression of each disorder. Each complex case demonstrates how each disorder is expressed-from presentation through diagnosis and treatment-in a way that a case excerpt within a chapter simply can not do. Throughout the book, the author explores the DSM-IV-TR criteria and demonstrates the interaction between developmental and environmental influences for each disorder.


  • NEW! New cases have been added, including MIXED CASE THREE (Chapter 15). This case covers a multiracial child of Hispanic, Asian, and Caucasian descent and displays a mix of elements that could indicate schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, or tic disorder. This interesting case leads students through a discussion of which symptoms match which criteria.
  • Each case is followed by a summary and a set of questions designed to make the students think.
  • NEW! Information on the DSM-IV-TR is discussed throughout the text.
  • NEW! All comorbid and biological information has been updated for each relevant chapter.
  • NEW! Key InfoTrac® College Edition search items have been added to each chapter to allow students ready access to a variety of well known journals.
  • NEW! You can bundle this text with InfoTrac® College Edition!

  • Two DIAGNOSE THE CASE exercises give students an opportunity to come up with diagnoses on their own. The first, which appears in Chapter 1, sets up the process of presentation, diagnosis, and treatment followed throughout the book.
  • The WRAP UP CASE is a complex, mixed case in which the child has multiple problems. This DIAGNOSE THE CASE exercise offers students an opportunity to apply what they have learned throughout the course and present a real challenge for the student.
  • The book addresses symptom, cause, assessment, and treatment in a balanced way.
  • The cases demonstrate that developmental issues and the expression of disorders differ depending on the age, ethnic background, and socio-economic background of the child.
