Overview

Neuropsychiatry is a rapidly expanding field, linking the traditional areas of neurology and psychiatry, which has benefited greatly from recognition of the role of genetic and environmental determinants of psychiatric disorder particularly in childhood and adolescence. Based on twenty years of clinical experience and eighteen years of research, Professor Gillberg has utilised his unique and detailed interdisciplinary knowledge of neurobiology, pharmacology, epidemiology and neuropsychology to compile this comprehensive reference to clinical assessment and treatment of the many neuropsychiatric disorders of childhood which, at a conservative estimate, affect five in every hundred children. This is valuable reference resource that is sure to be welcomed by a wide range of professionals and researchers including child neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, speech therapists and special education teachers.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Michael J. Schrift
This is a unique and interesting new book on the clinical aspects of child neuropsychiatry, written by a clinician-researcher in the field. 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. 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. 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. 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 behavioraldisorders of children. It will be a valuable resource for anyone in this field.
