Essential Psychopathology Casebook, Paperback / softback Book

Essential Psychopathology Casebook Paperback / softback

Edited by Mark D. Kilgus, William S. Rea


The clinical cases in this book are about real people suffering from psychopathology.

Reviewing these cases will allow the early clinician to learn by observing the decision-making process of experienced clinicians.

Reading this book is as close to a real-life experience as a reader can have without a patient in front of them. Each chapter is consistently organized to answer these central questions concerning clinical presentation: functional impairment; DSM diagnosis (keyed to DSM-V); epidemiology; differential diagnosis; etiology and pathogenesis; natural course without treatment; evidence-based bio-psycho-socio-spiritual treatment options; clinical course with management and treatment; systems-based practice issues; and legal, ethical, and cultural challenges. Designed as a clinical companion to the bestselling text, Essential Psychopathology and Its Treatment: Third Edition, this book's important lessons can also be learned by reading it as a stand-alone text.
