Providing a comprehensive overview of the main disorders encountered by child and adolescent psychiatrists in clinical practice, this authoritative clinical handbook ranges from eating, sleep and affective disorders to substance abuse, gender identity and sexual abuse. The approach is evidence-based and emphasis is on good clinical practice and quality control of patient care. In contrast to other books in the field, the authors' intention is not to cover exhaustively all the relevant science, but rather to present in condensed form any research findings that are significant for clinical practice.
