Overview

There is nothing quite like this gem of a book, which provides much the best introduction to child psychiatry that has been written. Professor Sir Michael Rutter

The first edition of this book was published to wide acclaim in 1997. Each chapter has been designed to present the key facts, concepts and emerging facets of the area, drawing on clinical experience as well as the latest research findings. These guiding principles are followed in the second edition, which has been updated to reflect the varied advances in research and clinical practice which inform the subject.

Child Psychiatry is structured into four main parts: first, an introductory section on assessment, classification and epidemiology; second, a section covering each of the main specific disorders and presentations; third, a section on the major risk factors predisposing to child psychiatric disorders; fourth, a section on the main methods of treatment. This fourth section has been substantially expanded in this second edition to provide coverage on prevention, service organisation and fostering and adoption.

* Includes many practical tips on successful assessment and treatment techniques

* Contains over 200 multiple choice questions and answers to assist those preparing for examinations, including MRCPsych

* Written by international experts in child psychiatry

Written in an accessible style, the book will be of benefit to those at different stages of their career: as an invaluable resource for trainee psychiatrists, paediatricians and general practitioners; a textbook for undergraduate students in medicine, nursing and related fields; and as a refresher for active clinicians.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review Comments on the first edition:

Authoritative and comprehensive, Child Psychiatry provides up-to-date coverage of all aspects of the field” Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry

Fact and theory are interwoven with clinical wisdom in a way which brings the text to life and makes it applicable to real clinical situations and dilemmas.”
European Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Lori R. Solaro
This introductory text, reflecting both DSM-IV and ICD-10 terminology, describes the epidemiology, assessment, risk factors, and treatment of child psychiatric disorders and includes a section discussing specific childhood disorders. The authors' intent is to present a brief, clinically based, scientifically accurate book on child psychiatry that is relevant for professional examinations. According to the authors, this text should be useful to trainees in psychiatry, pediatrics, and family medicine as well as for experienced clinicians and members of affiliated disciplines such as social work and education. The authors are experienced clinicians. Multiple tables provide clarification of the text. There are brief but current reference lists at the end of each chapter. The concluding chapter contains examination questions. This is a basic, concise text most beneficial to medical students, psychiatry residents, and other students and professionals in allied pediatric disciplines working with children with psychiatric disorders. The examination questions are helpful in reinforcing the material. Although the epidemiological information provides a quick reference source, discussions of treatments in this text are not in-depth enough to function as a desktop guide for a practicing clinician. This book is recommended as a good introductory text or brief review of child psychiatry.
