Description

Both scholarly and practical, the third edition of this exceptional textbook continues its tradition of integrating clinical wisdom and scientific research to improve patient care and advocacy for children and families, commemorating Dr. Jerry Wiener's immense contributions to the field of child and adolescent psychiatry. Comprehensive, yet not so lengthy that it would discourage a resident in training or a busy practitioner looking for an update, this well-organized reference focuses on clinical issues (based on empirical research) and is thus extremely practical for everyday use. Written by 88 distinguished experts, each of the 56 chapters in this informative work presents a summary of a core topic, blending clinical experience with evidence-based practices in assessment and treatment. Divided into 10 parts, this Third Edition has been revised and updated throughout to keep pace with accelerating progress in research on developmental psychopathology. Clearly organized along diagnostic principles as presented in DSM-IV-TR, this textbook combines clinical wisdom with the latest in research. In addition to the many chapters that have been refreshed, some by adding junior faculty as coauthors, this third edition contains six new chapters and ten completely rewritten chapters with new principal authors. -Two new chapters on economic issues and the role of culture and ethnicity. -Three new authors on diagnostic interviews (structured and semistructured), rating scales, and psychological and neuropsychological testing -New chapter on genetic testing -The latest on schizophrenia and psychotic disorders and mood disorders in adolescents -Four new authors on adjustment (and reactive) disorders, substance abuse disorder, and physical and sexual abuse of children -Inpatient and partial hospitalization, residential milieu treatment, and group psychotherapy The third edition of this contemporary core textbook continues to be an invaluable addition to the libraries of generalist and specialist alike, from medical students and psychiatry residents to practitioners (e.g., child and adolescent psychiatrists, pediatricians, family physicians, general psychiatrists, advanced practice child psychiatric nurses, psychiatric social workers) and family law attorneys. Special note from the co-editor of this volume: Jerry Wiener, M.D., sole editor of the previous two editions of this remarkable textbook, was a giant in child psychiatry. Before his illness, Jerry shaped this new edition, commissioned the chapters, and edited many of them. As such, this third edition caps and commemorates his immense contributions to the field of child and adolescent psychiatry. Mina Dulcan, M.D., is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the author of more than 60 articles, chapters, and books. She has special expertise in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Other interests include psychiatric education, child and adolescent psychiatric epidemiology, psychiatric administration, and women in leadership roles. Dr. Dulcan is Osterman Professor and Head of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Children's Memorial Hospital and the director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University.show more
