Clinical Child Psychiatry, Second Edition serves as a focused text of the major problems, challenges and practices commonly encountered in clinical child psychiatry.

The introductory section covers assessment of the patient, treatment planning and a review of CBT and play therapy. Each chapter in section two reviews a clinical disorder in detail, giving diagnostic criteria and clinical management advice and is enhanced by case studies. The final section covers special topics such as foster care, adoption, loss and grief, sleep disorders, forensics and socioeconomics.

Clinical Child Psychiatry, Second Edition provides invaluable guidance for all practitioners: interns and residents entering the field, pediatricians and family physicians who now provide the preponderance of child psychiatric services, and experienced clinicians encountering new areas of practice.

Praise from the reviews:

I recommend this text to interns and residents in psychiatry and child psychiatry as well as to pediatricians and general psychiatrists." AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY (first edition review)

“… useful as a reference guide. For those entering the field, it is a good book to begin with…it is easy to read and the methods used to employ this information enhance the text." DOODY'S HEALTH SERVICES

Reviewer: Regina Rosa Lopez, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book presents clinically applicable information in the field of child psychiatry. The book is not meant to be all encompassing; rather it focuses on the essential information needed to adequately approach problems.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a focused study of major problems, challenges, and practices commonly encountered in child psychiatry. These are worthy objectives because treating children oftentimes can be complicated. Also, clinicians outside of the field find themselves having to treat this patient population.
Audience: The book is written for experienced clinicians encountering new areas of practice, students and residents entering the field, pediatricians, family physicians, and other professionals outside of medicine.
Features: This is an up-to-date comprehensive summary of clinically relevant information in the field of child psychiatry. It covers a wide range of topics from the fundamentals to more specific issues, such as foster care and adoption. The best feature of the book is that it is readable and well organized. The tables, figures, and diagrams are also useful. Many case studies are used to illustrate points. Some of the detailing of the figures was lost in the black-and-white reproduction. Also, some of the tables could have been formatted better, because the columns and rows tended to run together.
Assessment: This will be useful as a reference guide. For those entering the field, it is a good book to begin with. Overall, it is easy to read and the methods used to employ this information enhance the text.
