Overview

Clinical Manual of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology is a succinct and practical guide that enables practitioners to more effectively address commonly-seen disorders such as ADHD, gain new insight into high-profile problems like juvenile suicide, and become better informed regarding conditions, such as anxiety, that frequently go undiagnosed and untreated. The contributors review developmental aspects of pediatric psychopharmacology, address specific disorders in chapter-length detail, and discuss the pharmacotherapy of youths who are primarily seen in general medical settings, covering such conditions as functional somatic syndromes and somatoform disorders, eating disorders, sleep disorders, elimination disorders, and delirium.

Specific chapters cover the problems that practitioners find most vexing, including the use of stimulant and nonstimulant agents for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, pharmacological approaches to patients with disruptive behavior disorders, benefits and risks of medications for anxiety disorders, combination pharmacotherapeutic approaches for bipolar disorders, and use of antidepressants for autism and other pervasive developmental disorders. Throughout the text, the contributors provide commentary regarding the clinical interpretability of existing literature to better enable clinicians to incorporate research results into their practice.
