Oxford University Press, 2009 - Medical - 491 pages
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a compact and easy to read book that brings together up-to-date and evidence-based information for child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychiatric trainees, specialist nursing staff and others interested in psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents.
The authors have extensive experience in research, teaching, service design, clinical assessments and evidence-based pharmacological and psychological treatments. They have published work in various areas of child and adolescent psychiatry and have considerable experience in provision of teaching at all levels including local, national and international.The book is evidence-based, reflecting up to-date-guidelines and algorithms, but also includes clinical scenarios and management guides reflecting the reality of everyday practice. It is designed to cover the current training needs of specialist child and adolescent trainees and is structured to reflect the curriculum requirements of this group.
This is the first concise text specifically tailored to the needs of child and adolescent psychiatric trainees. However, as it comprehensively covers the speciality, the handbook also offers a useful and rapidly accessible aid to groups such as undergraduates, general psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric nursing staff, pediatricians and general practitioners.
