Case Studies in Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology

First Edition


September 2020 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Case Studies in Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology is designed to accompany the textbook Introduction to Abnormal Child and Adolescent Psychology by Robert Weis. Clinical case examples based on real children and parents pair with chapters in the core text to illustrate principles of developmental psychopathology, psychological assessment, evidence-based treatment, and examples of specifics disorders prevalent in children and adolescents. These brief cases, modeled after the same format as DSM-5 clinical cases, are paired with a series of discussion questions that can be used as in-class activities, discussion starters, writing assignments, or exam questions.
