Both scholarly and practical, the third edition of this popular 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 accessible to busy students, residents, and practitioners alike, this well-organized, clinically oriented reference is practical for everyday use.

Written by 88 distinguished experts, each of the 56 chapters in this densely informative work presents a summary of a core topic. 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 to reflect DSM-IV-TR, this textbook includes not only many updated chapters (some with new junior faculty as coauthors), but also six new chapters on culture and ethnicity, economic issues, rating scales, patient interviews, genetic testing, and milieu treatments, and ten completely rewritten chapters with new principal authors on testing, posttraumatic stress disorder, bulimia nervosa, adjustment and reactive disorders, substance abuse disorders, physical abuse and sexual abuse, group psychotherapy, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, and mood disorders in adolescents.

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 and family law attorneys.

Special Note from the co-editor: 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. This third edition caps and commemorates his immense contributions to the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elliott Pae, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is the third edition of a comprehensive, scholarly, and practical overview of the field of child and adolescent psychiatry. The second edition of this classic textbook was published in 1997.
Purpose: The purpose is to thoroughly update the information from the previous editions. Importantly, it broadens the literature in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry through new chapters on culture, economic issues, diagnostic interviews, clinical genomic testing, and milieu treatment. This is a timely contribution to the field because it addresses the accelerating progress in research on developmental psychopathology since the last edition. The editors, by bringing together a distinguished team of leading experts, have done an outstanding job in attaining these objectives.
Audience: This book may serve as a core text for child psychiatrists or as a reference for pediatricians, family physicians, general psychiatrists, advanced-practice child psychiatric nurses, and psychiatric social workers. Jerry Weiner, MD, now deceased, was a giant in child psychiatry whose expertise and authority were widely recognized. Mina Dulcan, MD, is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
Features: This is one in a collection of titles published by American Psychiatric Publishing focusing on topics in child and adolescent psychiatry. It begins with a historical overview of the field. Each subsequent chapter presents a summary of a core topic and provides a balanced approach using clinical wisdom with evidence-based practices in evaluation and treatment. New chapters highlight advances in the areas of culture, economics, genomic testing, and milieu treatment. Some of the topics addressed in the previous editions are covered by new authors, including junior faculty coauthors, in this edition.
Assessment: This book builds upon the contributions made by the previous editions and proves to be a particularly valuable source of pithy information for clinicians and educators. It remains one of the easiest to read of the major textbooks and is essential for all physicians and mental health professionals who serve children, adolescents, and their families.
A clinically focused textbook encompassing the state of the art and the science, intended for pediatricians and other clinicians and for students. The ten sections comprise chapters on assessment and diagnosis; various types of disorders--developmental, schizophrenia and affect, conduct and behavior, anxiety, eating and nutrition, tic and movement, and somatic function; and special issues and treatment.
