Medical students and graduate medical residents training in pediatrics, primary care, pediatric neurology, psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry require an empirical knowledge base in pediatric psychopharmacology. Clinical psychologists are increasingly confronted with medication issues if and when they evaluate and treat youngsters with mental health problems. At the time of this writing, psychologists have been legislatively granted psychiatric medication prescribing rights in New Mexico and Louisiana. Given the continuing national shortage of child and adolescent psychiatrists, the number of states granting prescriptive rights to psychologists may very well grow in the future. Often treatment involves a collaborative effort between the prescribing clinician, the primary care provider, and a number of other adults who may be responsible for the welfare of the child, including parents, guardians, the courts, nurses, teachers, counselors, therapists, and clergy. Providing a mechanism for broadly sharing state-of-the-art knowledge about psychopharmacological treatment of children and adolescents is very timely and important. There exists a great need for accurate, up-to-date information provided in an easy to read and highly organized reference that is accessible to both the clinician and layperson alike.
