Behavioral Pediatrics by Donald E. Greydanus

BEHAVIORAL PADIATRICS has been developed to provide the primary-care physician with a practical guide to early recognition of an intervention in the significant problems increasingly affecting the emotional health of our children and adolescents. The first part of the volume introduces general concepts of normal development, assessment, and treatment. Part two focuses on specific behavioral pediatric disorders, with particular attention to practical approaches to diagnosis, management, and referral.
