Description

Much like the patients on which it focuses, the field of pediatric mental health continues to grow and develop. Among other advances, the body of clinical research and the number of empirically supported treatments have grown, evaluation practices have been refined, and awareness of emotional and behavioral problems in youth has increased.

Stay up-to-date on significant DSM-5 changes to psychiatric nomenclature and criteria -- and the developments that have spurred them -- with the Concise Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

This fifth edition prunes older content while distilling and incorporating clinically relevant findings, and features:

Reorganized diagnostic chapters that reflect updates to DSM-5 Tables of selected diagnostic criteria from DSM-5 for quick reference Relevant treatment methods for each section on a specific disorder or clinical situation An informative chapter dedicated to pharmacological treatments -- from stimulant medications and antidepressants to antipsychotics and anticonvulsants Suggested additional readings for those interested in learning more about particular topics Recommended published and on-line information resources for parents

An indispensable primer on child and adolescent psychiatry for medical and mental health students and clinical trainees, this guide also serves as an ideal, quick-reference update for practicing physicians, nurses, and advanced practice nurses.

Complex theoretical notions, new research, and areas of controversy have been simplified in the interest of brevity and ease of reference, making this a useful resource for professionals in special education, child welfare, and juvenile justice, as well as parents.

Though complex theoretical notions, new research, and areas of controversy have been simplified in the interest of brevity and ease of reference, each chapter provides suggested additional readings for those interested in studying a particular topic in further detail, making the Concise Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry an indispensable primer on the field for medical and mental health students and clinical trainees, as well as an ideal, quick-reference update for practicing physicians, nurses, and advanced practice nurses.

Review quote

This text certainly has merit for trainees who might not be exposed to the full range of child and adolescent psychiatric disorders during their clinical rotations. The material in this synopsis reminds clinicians to be mindful of disorders that might not commonly be the primary focus of psychiatric assessment. Undoubtedly this concise text will be a useful resource for initial board review/examination preparation and has been a valuable reference in preparing for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada general psychiatry examination. The authors have succeeded in developing a text to reach a broad clinical audience, because this succinct overview is presented in a straightforward manner suitable for clinicians with varying degrees of clinical expertise. The text also is a helpful reference for medical students and junior residents learning about child and adolescent psychiatry. -- Matthew Morrissette, M.D., Sophia Hrycko, M.D. * Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry *
