Reflecting the latest research from the field, "Casebook In Child Behaviour Disorders, 5/e, International Edition" vividly illustrates the rich and arresting nature of disorders that first manifest themselves in childhood while also showing how a child's developmental patterns shape the expression of each disorder. Every complex case demonstrates how each disorder is expressed-from presentation through diagnosis and treatment, in an effective way. Throughout the book, the author explores the DSM-IV-TR criteria and highlights the interaction between developmental and environmental influences for each disorder. The Fifth Edition offers an assortment of cases. Helping instructors teach the course, sample cases focus on major mental disorders in youth. In addition, mixed cases encourage independent thinking as they challenge students to draw from their knowledge to come up with their own diagnosis.
