Overview

The mental health assessment and treatment of youngsters with physical symptoms and illnesses commonly pose unique and often complex challenges to clinicians. Clinical Manual of Pediatric Psychosomatic Medicine is the only complete text on the subject, describing an integrative approach to behavioral health problems in children and adolescents who are physically ill, have emotional illness masquerading as physical illness, and have comorbid emotional and physical conditions that complicate the management of each. It brings together information regarding consultation-liaison or psychosomatic work with children into a succinct guide that provides the practitioner with pragmatic ways of organizing the key issues that arise in psychiatric consultation with physically ill children, and it features a set of unique templates to help guide clinical assessment and management.

The authors offer a practical method of mental health consultation in the medical setting and cover topics not included in standard child psychiatry and psychology texts, such as treatment adherence and organ transplantation. Overview chapters include a hands-on approach to the consultation process and pragmatic assessment guidelines. Succeeding chapters then address specific clinical situations, from delirium and mood disorders to organ transplantation and cancer. Additional chapters consider issues related to treatment and intervention: both individual and family psychotherapy, including coping strategies for family members; psychopharmacology; and techniques such as medical hypnosis to help children prepare for procedures. Among the book's other helpful features are: • Templates with specific questions for both general psychiatric assessment and specific issues, such as pre-transplant assessment, treatment adherence, and somatoform disorders• Intensive coverage of pediatric pain assessment and management, including the use of adjunctive psychiatric medications to treat children with chronic pain• Unique considerations tailored to each topic, such as anxiety symptoms related to specific physical conditions and end-of-life strategies for cancer patients• Consideration of legal and forensic issues, including consent, confidentiality, and assessment for parenting capacity• An abundance of quick-reference tables -- including psychopharmacological agents used in a wide range of conditions, with indications, doses, and side effects -- and flow charts describing step-by-step approaches to pain and somatoform disorders

This practical manual is useful to a wide range of professionals who work with children and adolescents in medical settings. And because psychosomatic medicine has recently received subspecialty status with the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, it offers an excellent resource for board examinations.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christine J. Choe, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a concise guide for psychiatric consultation in physically ill children. It provides information about the clinical characteristics, assessment, and treatment of psychiatric disorders most commonly encountered by the pediatric consultation-liaison psychiatrist.
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose is to provide concise and pragmatic ways of organizing the key issues that arise in psychiatric consultation to physically ill children and a template for clinical assessment and management. There is a need for practical and concise texts in this area and the book meets the authors' objectives.
Audience: This book is written primarily for practicing child psychiatrists, child psychiatry fellows, psychiatry residents, and pediatricians, although it could also be useful for other mental health professionals. The two authors appear to be highly credible authorities in the field.
Features: Chapters provide an overview of the field, including legal issues and assessment techniques. Also included are fairly comprehensive but succinct chapters on specific psychiatric disorders and common treatment issues in medically ill children, as well as a chapter devoted to psychopharmacological issues. Helpful techniques for interviewing a child in the medical setting are suggested (e.g. draw-a-person test), with figures showing how these techniques are executed. Perhaps most useful about this book are the numerous tables, including outlines of assessment and treatment, DSM criteria, mnemonics, and others.
Assessment: This book is quite useful, serving the functions of both a pocket manual and a more comprehensive text. Given the focused objectives of the book, much of the content could only be covered in a fundamental manner. However, this book would be useful as a quick reference for practitioners of any level.
