PSY355 - Child and Adolescent Psychopathology - Morin
Welcome to the course guide for PSY355: Child and Adolescent Psychopathology with Dr. Morin. This guide was designed to help you find books to complete your Psychopathology Applied Paper. In this library session, you will learn how to find appropriate biographies in our library collection and how to borrow books from other libraries using Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad).
This book serves as a helpful resource for school-based mental health providers (e.g., school social workers, school psychologists, and school counselors), communities-in-schools coordinators, and MSW students focusing on child and adolescent mental health. Chapters include: (1) Introduction; (2) Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder; (3) Autism Spectrum Disorder; (4) Specific Learning Disorder; (5) Early Onset Schizophrenia; (6) Bipolar Disorders; (7) Depressive Disorders; (8) Anxiety Disorders; (9) Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder; (10) Trauma and Stress Disorders; (11) Eating Disorders; (12) Elimination Disorders; (13) Disruptive Disorders; and (14) Self-Harm Disorders
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the American Psychiatric Association's standard reference for psychiatry which includes over 450 different definitions of mental disorders. The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) published by the World Health Organization (WHO) is the international standard system for classifying all medical diseases. This list contains conditions which are currently recognized as mental disorders as defined by these two systems.
1. Set up an ILLIAD account to borrow books from other libraries. Log into ILLIAD with your Ship email and password. On your first use of ILLIAD you will need to supply your local mailing address, etc.
2. Keywords describing Exceptionalities - Identify possible exceptionalities by checking the list of "Mental Disorders" from the DSM.
[The terms "mental illness" or "mental disorders" find limited results. The term "exceptionality" is not generally used as a subject heading.] There are no search terms which easily identify biographies of children/adolescents.
3. Search Advanced WorldCat for your keyword - ie., Child? and Autism.
Then LIMIT your results to the following:
Audience - Not Juvenile (Books not written FOR children)
Content - Biography
Format - Book
Language - English
4. If the book you find is located in Ship Library write down the call number and go get it on the top floor of the library. For example, the following book is in our Library and has the call number:
RC553.A88 T36 2007
Tammet, D. (2007). Born on a blue day: Inside the extraordinary mind of an autistic savant : a memoir. New York: Free Press.
5. If the book you find is located in another library, Choose "Request via InterLibrary Loan." This will open an ILLIAD session. Fill out a New Request for a Book. The biography will be sent to our library within 5 business days. You will receive an email notifying you when it arrives.
6. As an alternative your book may be in one of Ship's eBook databases. Search them by title and author's last name.
7. As another alternative, check your local public library, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.

If all of the above fails...
If you can't find what you are looking for in a library, use these links to search Amazon or Google for appropriate books. If you find something, either look its title up in WorldCat or buy the book from Amazon. Also check to see if your local public library might have the book.
