Childhood Mental Health Disorders is a comprehensive report, based on a thorough review of the literature, on the current effective use, sequencing, comparative risks/benefits, and integration of psychotropic medications and psychosocial interventions for children and adolescents. Acknowledging the complexity of these disorders and the need to individualize treatment, the volume is intended as a basic yet comprehensive framework for mental health providers. The disorders addressed include attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, autism and schizophrenia, and others.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is a thorough reference on childhood mental health disorders from some of the leading experts in child and adolescent mental health.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the latest research findings in psychopharmacology and psychotherapy for children and adolescents. This book provides a complete representation of the major disorders encountered in clinical and research practice. It examines the latest research and thinking involved in the provision of pharmacological interventions for the various disorders and the benefits and pitfalls of prescribing such agents. The latest psychological therapies are descriptively and realistically evaluated.
Audience: A book of this caliber can meet the needs of many. It would easily find a place in many academic and research institutions as a reference, a teaching tool, and a text. Practicing clinicians and researchers, whether psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, or nurses, will find the information current and valuable. The authors are some of the brightest and most well known in the field ever to be assembled. Their knowledge and insight make this book a classic.
Features: This is one of the most thorough and empirically based discussions of the major disorders including but not limited to ADHD, OCD, anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, the schizophrenia spectrum disorders, eating disorders, and the autism spectrum disorders. Notably, one can use this as a supplement to the DSM-IV-TR. The discussions on ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, and autism are some of the best evaluations of these disorders I've seen in quite some time.
Assessment: Every child and adolescent clinician must have a copy of this book. Any course in child and adolescent psychopathology needs to consider this book either as a core text or as a supplemental one. As the field continues to evolve, we are sure to see subsequent editions.
