Written with the whole child in mind, this book discusses disorders in connection with the different stages of development, providing both a meaningful framework to promote learning. The authors emphasize multi-factor explanations of disorders as well as developmental frameworks and developmental pathways–presenting disorders and sets of disorders in the order in which they typically appear in a child’s life. They also focus on the child-in-context (calling attention to the multiple settings in which the child is embedded) and emphasize the importance of taking a broad view that considers the whole child and his or her patterns of interest, abilities, and strengths, rather than a narrow view of a disorder or developmental delay. As a result of this holistic approach, which reflects the most up-to-date understanding of child and adolescent psychopathology, readers learn to think about disorders in the same way that caring adults think about disorders they encounter every day–in terms of an individual child who is coping with distress and dysfunction.

I appreciate the seller’s honest statement describing the condition of the product. it turned out this used book looks like a brand new , and best price.
This book is in great condition, almost like new. The only downside is it took two weeks to get to me, and I was not provided a tracking number. I’m now behind in my class because of this, but at least the book is almost like new.
I was worried that this edition that i had to buy for a class wasn’t going to address the DSM V, but rest assured it does. Its a text book, but reads pretty okay and implements good case studies.
