Flap copy

Psychosomatic medicine was recently recognized as a subspecialty by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, prompting creation of the first comprehensive edited volume on pediatric psychosomatic medicine by leading U.S. and international practitioners. Textbook of Pediatric Psychosomatic Medicine is a scholarly, authoritative, evidence-based review of the field designed to meet the needs of a wide range of professionals, including psychiatrists, pediatricians, psychologists, nurses, medical students, and social workers who work with children in medical settings. Notable are substantive chapters on often-neglected but critical topics, such as pediatric palliative care, Munchausen syndrome by proxy, and pediatric feeding disorders. There is also a detailed review of the topic of psychopharmacology in the physically ill child, as well as coverage of key legal and forensic issues in pediatric psychosomatic medicine. With a plethora of tables referencing psychopharmacological agents; assessment templates; and flowcharts illustrating step-by-step, pragmatic approaches to pain and somatoform disorders, the Textbook offers clinicians a comprehensive, empirically based review of assessment and treatment issues in children and adolescents with physical illness.show more
