The book is separated into two parts: The first containing a separate chapter on diagsis, case conceptualization, and treatment planning, which gives students the important building blocks needed to form diagsis in all the categories of the DSM. These chapters lay the foundation that can be used in the rest of the book to formulate diagsis and treatment planning for the characters. Each case is presented in an easy-to-read format and is introduced by the author, along with a basic case summary, case conceptualization, diagstic impressions, the treatment plan, and extra pedagogical features.
