The second edition of Case Studies in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology expands on the case study approach utilized in the first edition, providing engaging narratives of clients with rich backgrounds and complex family situations. Because the answers to important real-world questions are often nuanced, contextual, and tentative—unlike the idealistic scenarios presented in most textbooks—these case studies contain ethical lapses, clinical mistakes, confusing diagnostic presentations, unevenly applied approaches, and sometimes unhappy endings. These real-life portrayals of clients help students learn the skills they will need to be successful in the mental health field. Critical thinking questions designed to develop objective analysis and evaluation skills are embedded throughout the cases, which can be used in individual, group, or online formats. This problem-based learning approach challenges readers to create accurate case conceptualizations and evidence-based treatment plans. The cases utilize the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The current research applied in the case studies serves to deepen the understanding of the etiology and treatment of these disorders. The latest edition emphasizes culture, race, and ethnicity in psychotherapy, featuring both children and mental health providers who represent a wide variety of cultural backgrounds.

This handbook examines and illustrates the integration of conceptualization and treatment of child and adolescent psychopathology. Conceptual models and intervention strategies are illustrated, and chapters cover several specific disorders and problem areas. The inspiration for this book arose largely from the teaching experiences of the editors, who found that while many students, as well as experienced clinicians, have knowledge in several theoretical domains and familiarity with a variety of interventions, significant numbers had difficulty linking the two.
