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.
