"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.
