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.

Although there are many case study books that focus on adults diagnosed with various psychological disorders, this is the first casebook/workbook devoted exclusively to major child and adolescent disorders and their common treatments. It organizes disorders according to the DSM-IV, and allows readers to "diagnose" and consider treatment options before seeing how a case was actually diagnosed and treated. It provides detailed descriptions of a range of clinical problems affecting children and adolescents -- recognizing that symptoms and associated features of a disorder may be quite different, at times even seemingly opposite, of symptoms presented by adults -- and illustrates some of the ways these problems can be examined and treated. Section I presents case scenarios along with space for readers to write their ideas about diagnosis and treatment. Section II includes the diagnosis made by the therapist in the case, the rationale behind the diagnosis, and treatment considerations. Presents cases that focus on "classic" symptoms and problematic issues. Stresses the social context in which symptoms occur -- even when these social factors are not directly related to diagnosis. For psychiatric social workers, nurses, and counselors.

Designed to be flexible via its focused modular organization, the text reflects the latest changes to the DSM (DSM 5, 2013) and is updated with new research and developments in the field.

Treating Adolescents presents the empirical evidence base and practice based rationale for approaches to a range of psychopathology viewed from a developmental theoretical perspective.

Each chapter follows a consistent format: Presenting Problems and Client Description; Diagnosis and Case Formulation; Course of Treatment; Outcome and Prognosis/Treatment Follow-up; and Discussion Questions. Providing empirically supported treatments and long-term follow-up in many case studies gives students a deeper understanding of each psychopathology and the effects of treatment over time.
