The uniqueness of Child and Adolescent Life Stories lies in the multiple perspectives drawn from youth, their parents, and their teachers. These perspectives provide a range of lenses through which a student or beginning teacher may view child and adolescent development. The complex processes of development occur within a social context, and therefore a professional teacher, administrator, or school psychologist will need to be able to view developmental stages from youths' perspectives as well as from their various social settings.

As the title suggests, this text is designed specifically for students preparing for teaching or other education-related careers. It is the only text to date that focuses entirely on the development of school-age children and youth and whose examples are taken entirely from schools and classrooms. Likewise, its topical coverage reflects the developmental concerns of real-life educators, that is, there is a heavy treatment of cognitive, language, and social-emotional development during the school years.

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.
