This casebook illustrates the rich and arresting nature of disorders that first manifest themselves in childhood and shows how the child's developmental patterns shape the expression of each disorder. Each complex case demonstrates how each disorder is expressed-from presentation through diagnosis and treatment-in a way that a case excerpt within a chapter simply can not do. Throughout the book, the author explores the DSM-IV-TR criteria and demonstrates the interaction between developmental and environmental influences for each disorder.
