Overview

A well-established and popular textbook, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry combines the shared knowledge, experience and expertise of three internationally recognized academic and clinical practitioners in this field. With a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to practical clinical issues and a multidisciplinary perspective, it covers all aspects of developmental psychology, behavioural and emotional disorders, types of therapy, and prevention. It provides scholarly overviews of all relevant topics including genetics, neurodevelopment, attachment theory, family and social aspects, service provision, and child and adolescent mental health. This new edition also features comprehensive sections on developmental disabilities, adolescence, and psychological aspects of physical disorder in young people. Updated throughout, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry will continue to be the essential textbook for all trainees in child and adolescent mental health, as well as psychiatrists, psychologists, paediatricians, specialist nurses, speech and language therapists, social workers, and clinical service managers and commissioners.
