Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, 3rd Edition (1119979684) cover image
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry has been widely acclaimed since the publication of its first edition in 1997(originally titled Child Psychiatry). Each chapter has been designed to present the key facts, concepts and emerging facets of the area, drawing on clinical experience as well as the latest research findings. These guiding principles are followed in the third edition, which has been updated to reflect the varied advances in research and clinical practice that inform the subject.

 Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is structured into four main parts: first, an introductory section on assessment, classification and epidemiology; second, a section covering each of the main specific disorders and presentations; third, a section on the major risk factors predisposing to child psychiatric disorders; and fourth, a section on the main methods of treatment, covering also prevention, service organization and interpersonal and family therapies as well as fostering and adoption.

  • Spans child and adolescent psychiatry
  • Includes many practical tips on successful assessment and treatment techniques
  • Comprehensive coverage of topics, written in an accessible style by international experts in the field
  • Up to date information on prevention issues

Written in an accessible style, the book will be of benefit to all those working with children and adolescents with mental health problems: as an invaluable resource for trainee psychiatrists, paediatricians and general practitioners; as a textbook for undergraduate students in medicine, nursing and related fields; and as a refresher for active clinicians.

Supported by a companion website featuring over 200 multiple choice questions and answers to assist those preparing for examinations, including MRCPsych.

“Overall, this is a great introduction to child and adolescent psychiatry. It provides a general overview and looks at specific diagnoses and treatments, without getting bogged down in too many details, or going beyond the level necessary for the target audience. It is up to date and accurate, and is a helpful update to the previous edition.”  (Doody’s, 29 March 2013)
