Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Iram Qazi, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is an updated clinical presentation of material on childhood and adolescent psychiatric disorders from Kaplan and Sadock's Synopsis of Psychiatry, 10th edition, Sadock and Sadock (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2007).
Purpose: The book provides updated and detailed information about the major diagnoses in child psychiatry listed in the DSM.
Audience: With its focus on clinical diagnosis and pharmacological treatment, the book clearly targets mental health professionals, family physicians, pediatricians, psychiatry residents, and medical students. The authors are the pioneers in writing definitive texts in the field of psychiatry.
Features: Chapters are well organized and use simple language, making the book an easy read. It uses detailed tables of diagnoses and treatments as well as case studies to present the material in a practical and almost visual manner. However, it does have a significant lack of coverage of child development and school consultation that are necessary, if not essential, topics for any clinicians treating children.
Assessment: The book is fairly useful for clinicians looking for comprehensive information on the major diagnoses affecting children and adolescents. It may serve as a reference for c1inicians, but by no means is it to be used as a primary textbook.

    Missing some stuff...

    This book was assigned to me for a class for child and adolescent psychopathology and is not a book I would buy for any other purpose. And whether it's the professor or the book, the book is concise and it misses a few disorders that I feel are important, such as adjustment disorder and intermittent explosive disorder. In my opinion this concise edition is TOO concise. I suppose it would be a great book for those who want an overview of fairly common disorders that pertain to children and adolescents; but for a class devoted to these disorders it is not sufficient enough.
