Overview

Spanning the fields of pediatric medicine, pediatric neurology, and child and adolescent psychiatry, Textbook of Pediatric Neuropsychiatry is the definitive resource on all aspects of pediatric neuropsychiatry. Written by world-renowned experts in the field, this comprehensive text provides child and adolescent psychiatrists, neurologists, pediatricians, and other clinicians with complete coverage of the latest developments in research, theory, assessment and diagnosis, treatment, and other vital aspects of clinical practice. This text offers an at-a-glance reference to all fundamental topics in pediatric neuropsychiatry and contains a thorough, exhaustive, and current literature review.

The Textbook is organized into five sections:

  • Section I discusses the specialty of pediatric neuropsychiatry, normal and abnormal brain development, cerebral connectivity, and normal growth and physical development. It includes an integrative model linking developmental brain biology with behavior.
  • Section II discusses normal behavioral and personality development; bedside, neuropsychological, and psychoeducational assessment of the pediatric patient; and the role of advanced brain-imaging technologies in the evaluation of children and adolescents. This section defines the acceptable limits of normal brain development.
  • Sections III and IV provide the clinical core of the Textbook and focus on the neuropsychiatric aspects of psychiatric and neurological disorders in children and adolescents. These sections highlight how the developing nervous system influences the pathophysiology, neuropsychiatric manifestations, clinical course,treatment, and prognosis of psychiatric and neurological illness.
  • Section V examines psychopharmacology, electroconvulsive therapy, genetic interventions, psychosocial and family therapies, educational interventions, and residential facilities. The section also includes a chapter on the special legal considerations that impact the provision of care for these patients.

    This volume is an unparalleled teaching tool that will be a key reference for psychiatry residents pursuing a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry and for neurology residents seeking certification in child neurology. Because this text discusses brain development abnormalities that may manifest themselves later in life, the Textbook of Pediatric Neuropsychiatry will also be an important adjunct text for psychiatric training classes as well as for neurology residents, graduate students in psychology, and social work students.

    A valuable investment for mental health education and clinical practice, this unique textbook will form the basis for a sophisticated clinical practice.
