Culture and Conflict in Child and Adolescent Mental Health
'The theme of the 18th World Congress of the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions - IACAPAP - is 'Carrying Hope Between East and West for 3 C's: Children, Cultures, Commitments'. The aim of the congress book, to be presented in Istanbul in the Spring of 2008, is to focus interest on the effects of turmoil on children. It is necessary that mental health professionals start to plan how to meet children of immigrants and refugees and to develop the necessary services and methods to support those coming with a burden of psychiatric need.' Per-Anders Rydelius, M.D., Ph.D.

This volume of papers from the IACAPAP conference give the reader a flavor of critical, provocative and challenging work going on globally in the field of child and adolescent mental health. It is a fascinating account of the research, the setting up of programs, and the attempts to train workers in cultural areas far outside our usual zones of comfort. -- Rudy Oldeschulte, Metaphysical Online Reviews, Aug 25, 2009 The emergence of new nations and nationalities, the concurrent migration of diverse populations to foreign countries, and the persistence of conflict and war all strongly impact the mental health of children. In this sense, Culture and Conflict in Child and Adolescent Mental Health represents a timely contribution...Diversity of subject matter, geography, and analytic method represent this book's strong points. * Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic: A Journal for the Mental Health Professions *
