With the combined expertise of 82 top authorities in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry, the second edition of the Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry provides a comprehensive, well-organized, and clinically oriented resource for the entire spectrum of psychiatric professionals from medical students to seasoned clinicians. Thoroughly updated and revised to reflect DSM-IV, this second edition includes a new chapter on changes in DSM-IV classification and discusses the latest research and treatment advances in the areas of epidemiology, genetics, developmental neurobiology, assessment instrumentation and diagnostic neuroimaging, traumatology, psychopharmacology, and combined treatments. To make the text especially useful to the clinician, each disorder is organized by DSM-IV diagnostic criteria, clinical description, epidemiology, etiology, and treatment and research issues. A special section covers essential issues, such as HIV and AIDS, gender identity disorders, physical and sexual abuse, and substance abuse, for the child and adolescent psychiatrist.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
