DSM-5® Casebook and Treatment Guide for Child Mental Health offers trainees and clinicians who provide mental health services to children and adolescents a concise but conceptually and clinically rich guide to the types of disorders commonly found in practice. The cases are either new or updated from the previous publication, which was designed as a child mental health casebook for DSM-IV-TR, and were chosen to illustrate advances in diagnosis and evidence-based assessment and treatment with DSM-5 in mind. For each case, commentaries are included from a child and adolescent psychiatrist and child psychologist (or another mental health professional), who review each vignette and address diagnostic formulation and treatment from both psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacologic perspectives, with attention to other modalities that might be important for clinical management. This panel approach allows for a diversity of perspectives and provides valuable, complementary insights into each case. The book is structured in a logical, user-friendly way, with many features that facilitate and enhance learning: Cases are divided into four sections, each with an introduction by the editors, who summarize and contextualize the information presented in that part, providing a framework for understanding and building bridges to the other sections. The 29 case vignettes are fascinating, instructive, and diverse. The cases range from fairly clear diagnoses, to more complex presentations (such as when patients with comorbid conditions), to the most difficult cases (when the diagnosis is unclear, the patient has not responded to previous treatment, only limited evidence is available on the correct means of treatment, and/or the patient's psychopathology occurs in the context of extreme psychosocial stressors). The book's final part addresses diagnostic and treatment decision making and includes two chapters on clinical and research issues in the diagnosis and treatment of child psychopathology. The book's cross-disciplinary approach makes it appropriate for clinicians and trainees from all disciplines who are involved in treating children and adolescents with mental health problems. DSM-5® Casebook and Treatment Guide for Child Mental Health is unparalleled in its engaging style, up-to-date information, and expert, evidence-based guidance in conceptualizing diagnosis and treatment.

In May 1994 The American Psychiatric Association published the most recent version of DSM-IV, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. DSM-IV is the primary diagnostic reference for mental health professionals in psychiatry, psychology, social work, and nursing. It provides brief descriptions of mental disorders in terms of their primary and associated features, age at onset, typical course, level of impairment, predisposing factors, complications, prevalence, sex ratio, and familial patterns. Although DSM-IV is one of the primary training and reference tools for mental health professionals, its scope and utility are limited. It is explicitly designed to be a diagnostic manual and therefore contains little regarding treatment -- the next step after diagnosis. Child and Adolescent Psychological Disorders: A Comprehensive Textbook mirrors the organization of DSM-IV but goes beyond a listing of diagnostic criteria by addressing what to do after the diagnosis is made. The text includes selections written by experts in both clinical psychology and psychiatry. Each chapter reviews the current research and provides diagnostic and assessment criteria, treatment recommendations, and assessment strategies for each disorder. An ideal text for courses in child and adolescent psychopathology and clinical psychology, Child and Adolescent Psychological Disorders: A Comprehensive Textbook is also an excellent reference for practitioners.

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.
