Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wilmshurst exhibits a firm grasp, understanding, and presentation of a broad range of current issues in the field of psychopathology. The case examples are excellent and bring to life issues typically encountered in 'real life' cases. The variety in cases was also appealing. Students (at any level) reading this book will surely learn a lot about child psychopathology."

(Michael L. Handwerk, Director of Clinical Services, Research, & Internship Training)

"The major strength of this book is the case studies and the way they are integrated with literature (about diagnosis, associated features, and empirically supported treatments) and with the raw clinical data (such as scores from assessment instruments). Additional strengths include the attention to empirically supported treatments, along with a variety of different theoretical perspectives in terms of case conceptualization. This book will fill an important niche."

(Eric Youngstrom, Ph.D.) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Had to use this book for my Child and Adolescent Psychopathology class and it is a wonderful resource to really help explain just how these disorders can look in children. Would recommend it for anyone looking to learn more about childhood psychological disorders!

The cases in this book are comprehensive and laid out in a way that would allow students to apply the presented case formulation approach from different theoretical perspectives. I wish I could have used it in the course I teach this semester. However, whoever was in charge of the proofreading/editing did not do a good job at all. Within the first few cases alone, several of the medication names, among other things, are (significantly) misspelled (Adderol or Resperdol, anyone?). Also, there are numerous misspellings in the appendices, which supposedly report diagnostic criteria (but not so well if they are not spelled correctly). The misspellings are not simple typos either; they detract from the clarity of the book when one reads it (otherwise, I could probably overlook them and focus on case quality). This really does not convey the professional standard that I would expect from a textbook and professional reference/resource publisher. Disappointing that I cannot use this book with my students. The last thing I want is for them to replicate this inattention to important details. I expected much higher quality from Sage Publications.

It's always helpful to read case descriptions, but it would be nice to include:
- updated cases (some of the diagnoses do not fall in line with the DSM, such as NVLD)
- information about differential diagnosis for each case (some of them were written without possible diagnoses at the end)
- more of a biopsychosocial approach to case conceptualization

Looking forward to future editions.
