An Engaging, Up–To–Date Overview of Child and Adolescent Psychopathology

Fully revised and updated, Essentials of Child and Adolescent Psychopathology provides students and professionals with a brief but comprehensive overview of critical conceptual issues in child and adolescent psychopathology. It covers major theories, diagnoses, assessment and best treatment practices, ethical issues, and trends in the field. In addition, you will find coverage of the changes in the way the DSM –5 conceptualizes disorders in children and adolescents and a new chapter on child abuse, maltreatment, and self–injurious behavior. This Second Edition provides the same useful features as the previous edition including Rapid Reference, Caution, and Don′t Forget callout boxes with a revised and up–to–date text. Each concise chapter includes case examples and key concepts, as well as Test Yourself questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

As part of the Essentials of Behavioral Science series, this book provides information mental health professionals need in order to practice knowledgeably, efficiently, and ethically in today′s behavioral healthcare environment.

Essentials of Child and Adolescent Psychopathology is the only resource that condenses the wide–ranging topics of the field into an accessible format for students and practitioners alike.
