With this casebook, Christopher Kearney aims to show how the developmental patterns in children shape the expression of disorders. The book explores DSM-IV criteria and the interaction between developmental and environmental influences. 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.
