Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a unique and interesting new book on the clinical aspects of child neuropsychiatry, written by a clinician-researcher in the field.
Purpose: According to the author, until now, there have been no books published that cover the clinical aspects of child neuropsychiatry. Books such as Developmental Psychiatry by Rutter (1980) and Developmental Neuropsychiatry by Rutter (1984) cover mainly individual scientific papers or classical research reviews. The author aims to cover disorders of infancy, childhood, or adolescence of which mental, emotional and behavioral problems predominate and for which biological factors have been shown to play a major pathogenetic/contributory role. The author has succeeded in this goal.
Audience: The book is targeted to psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, child neurologists, psychologists, speech pathologists, and special education teachers. This unique book would obviously benefit neuropsychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and behavioral neurologists. It would also be essential reading for child psychiatry fellows, psychiatry residents rotating on the child psychiatry service, and pediatric residents.
Features: The book features 19 chapters divided into four sections covering methodological concerns, clinical disorders, assessment, and interventions. Each chapter is well referenced with up-to-date citations. The tables and figures are quite useful. The book also has a helpful index section at the end.
Assessment: This is an excellent and unique new book for students and practitioners in the field of child neuropsychiatry. It is the only book that reviews under one cover the neurological/clinical aspects of emotional, mental, and behavioral disorders of children. It will be a valuable resource for anyone in this field.
