This text presents a comprehensive overview of the psychopathological disorders of childhood and adolescence from a brain-based perspective. Based upon the highly respectedHandbook of Pediatric Neuropsychology, this text covers all of the major pediatric disorders described in the DSM-IV-TR, while also offering hard-to-find coverage of childhood cognitive disorders that have not been addressed sufficiently in the DSM and other child psychopathology texts.
Each chapter includes the etiology of each disorder (including genetics), its prevalence, clinical presentation, assessment considerations, and evidence-based treatments. Additionally, the volume features all-new material on neuroimaging in diagnosis and a comprehensive, real-life case study for each disorder to enhance student and clinician understanding. Designed for graduate-level courses in child and adolescent psychopathology, this affordable text will also be a convenient resource for clinicians.Key Features:
