Reflecting the latest research from the field, CASEBOOK IN CHILD BEHAVIOR DISORDERS, 6th 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. Complex cases demonstrate how each disorder is expressed — from presentation through diagnosis and treatment. Throughout the book, the author explores the DSM-5 criteria and highlights the interaction between developmental and environmental influences for each disorder. The Sixth Edition's wealth of cases includes unique mixed cases, giving you the opportunity to draw from your knowledge to come up with a diagnosis.
