Now completely revised and updated, the fifth edition provides a coherent appraisal of the current state of the field to help trainee and practising clinicians in their daily work. It is distinctive in being both interdisciplinary and international, in its integration of science and clinical practice, and in its practical discussion of how researchers and practitioners need to think about conflicting or uncertain findings. This new edition now offers an entirely new section on conceptual approaches, and several new chapters, including: neurochemistry and basic pharmacology brain imaging health economics psychopathology in refugees and asylum seekers bipolar disorder attachment disorders statistical methods for clinicians This leading textbook provides an accurate and comprehensive account of current knowledge, through the integration of empirical findings with clinical experience and practice, and is essential reading for professionals working in the field of child and adolescent mental health, and clinicians working in general practice and community pediatric settings.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Shalini Chawla, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This comprehensive child and adolescent psychiatry book is divided into five sections: conceptual approaches, clinical assessment, influences on psychopathology, clinical syndromes, and approaches to treatment.
Purpose: This revised and updated edition is interdisciplinary and international in its integration of science and clinical practice.
Audience: The book is intended for professionals working in child and adolescent mental health, as well as clinicians working in general practice and community pediatric settings. It is not detailed enough for residents and fellows who are attempting to learn the field of child and adolescent psychiatry, but it may be appropriate as a reference for those already out of training to use as a reference in clinical settings in their own practice.
Features: The first section on conceptual approaches discusses classification, epidemiology, legal issues in child psychiatry, statistics, brain imaging, neurobiology and development, temperament and personality, neuropsychopharmacology, and neurophysiology. The clinical assessment section presents structured interviews, use of rating scales, psychological assessment, and the physical exam. The third section, influences on psychopathology, includes genetics, acute life stresses, parental illnesses, child abuse, and foster families/adoption. The clinical syndromes section includes all of the DSM IV psychiatric disorders with specific chapters on psychopathy, gender identity disorders, attachment disorders, and mental health in children with specific sensory impairments. The final section on approaches to treatment covers psychotherapies, intensive treatment options, community-based interventions, parenting programs, genetic counseling, and special education. The book incorporates international perspectives and international issues such as psychopathology in refugee and asylum seeking children and psychiatric aspects of HIV/AIDS. A CD-ROM of a searchable version of the text accompanies the book.
Assessment: Lewis's Child and Adolescent Psychiatry: A Comprehensive Textbook, 4th edition, Martin and Volkmar (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2007), is the gold standard in child psychiatry textbooks. Although this book has multiple chapters on neurobiology and development, it is not as detailed as the chapter on childhood development in Lewis's and, as a result, it is not as useful for residents and fellows in training. It will be useful for clinicians and professionals who have completed their training in child and adolescent psychiatry as a reference.
From the Publisher

Professor Sir Michael Rutter graduated from Birmingham University Medical School in 1955. After postgraduate posts in neurology, paediatrics and cardiology, he undertook training in psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital in London, qualifying with distinction in 1961 before going to spend a year on a research fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. On his return he joined the Medical Research Council (MRC) Social Psychiatry Unit, remaining until appointed as Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry in London in 1966, subsequently reader and then, in 1973, Professor of Child Psychiatry and Head of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

From 1984 to 1998 he was Honorary Director of the MRC Child Psychiatry Research Unit and from 1994 to 1998 he was also Honorary Director of the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Research Centre, both of which he set up at the Institute of Psychiatry. Since 1998 he has held the position of Professor of Developmental Psychopathology. He has published some 38 books and over 400 scientific papers and chapters.

He was elected to the Royal Society in 1987, was knighted in 1992, and was a founder member of both the Academia Europaea and the Academy of Medical Sciences. He is a foreign member of the US Institute of Medicine, and is currently president of the Society for Research into Child Development.
