Casebook in Child Behavior Disorders

This casebook 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. Each 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 demonstrates the interaction between developmental and environmental influences for each disorder.

    Essential to Developmental Psychopathologists, August 25, 2008

    This casebook provides a practical approach to learning about Developmental Psychopathology. A number of disorders are discussed, such as learning disabilities, elimination disorders, conduct disorders, and substance abuse. Each chapter features a different case, and for each case, the author describes the symptoms, assessment, risk factors and maintaining variables, developmental aspects, and treatment. The author has also contributed discussion questions at the end of each chapter to ensure full comprehension of the disorder at hand.

    In addition to the common (and not-so-common) classifiable disorders, there are three “mixed cases”, featuring symptoms from a variety of disorders. These cases are effective in educating the reader on how to treat vague cases.

    While I purchased this book as a requirement for a Developmental Psychology course, I still reference it regularly and find it captivating and compelling. Really, this book is a must for anyone interested in Developmental Psychopathology or Psychology.

    This review is from: Casebook in Child Behavior Disorders (Paperback)

    Used this in an intro to child counseling class. The cases had plenty of detail, great questions at the end, and perfect scenarios to role play in class. Also varies in different scenarios. I would recommend this to any Psychology major or professor.

    A LOOK INTO CHILD PSYCHOPATHOLOGY, June 8, 2003
    By

    THIS IS A VERY TOUCHING BOOK OF CASE STORIES ABOUT CHILDREN WITH DISORDERS. EACH CHAPTER IS A DIFFERENT CASE STORY DEALING WITH CHILD PSYCHOPATHOLOGY. THE STORIES ARE SOMETIMES SAD BUT REALLY WILL OPEN YOUR EYES TO THE TERRIBLE TRAMA MANY OF THESE CHILDREN HAVE TO GO THROUGH GROWING UP. TAKING A LOOK AT THE ENVIRONMENT THE CHILDREN LIVE IN, THE WAY THEY ARE TALKED TO AND THE OTHERS ARE TALKED TO IN THE HOUSE, MAKES A PERSON REALIZE THAT OFTEN THE PROBLEMS WE SEE IN CHILDREN ARE ACTUALLY THE CAUSE OF THEIR PARENTS.
    EACH CHAPTER HAS A SECTION ON ASSESSMENT, TREATMENT, ETC., FROM THE THERAPIST POINT OF VIEW. IT REFERS TO THE DSM-IV AND LIST THE CRITEREA FOR DIAGNOSIS.

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE WHO CARES ABOUT CHILDREN AND ANYONE WHO HAD SOME TYPE OF TRAUMA GROWING UP. I ALSO RECOMMEND IT TO PSYCHOLOGY STUDENTS OR ANYONE INTERESTED IN PSYCHOLOGY.
