Essentials of Child and Adolescent Psychopathology provides 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.
