This text provides an abundance of real-life based cases that illustrate issues in assessing, diagnosing, and treating child psychopathologies. The helpful casebook approach involves students by engaging them in case formulation and diagnosis and by helping them to develop decision-making and problem-solving skills. Through the process of exploring realistic, complex cases, students learn to integrate theory into the research-based assessments and interventions they have already learned and will be better prepared to assess and treat children.
