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.

Review:

"I think the learning challenges are for students to get a handle on what kids with problems are really like, and to understand that in many cases, multiple problems can co-exist. Child cases are rarely simple, 'classic' cases. I think this text helps to give students a 'real life' feel for cases and their challenges."

"I think the Kearney casebook is an exceptional learning tool. Each case is presented clearly and concisely....It is descriptive and realistic enough in its discussion of each case, yet brief enough to be manageable reading for students."
