Description

Understanding how and why psychiatric medication is prescribed to children.

A concise guide for non-medically trained clinicians, consumers, and parents, this book addresses the use of psychiatric medications for children, and the controversy and ambivalence surrounding their prescription. How the drugs work in the body, why they have become increasingly prevalent in contemporary medical culture, and other critical issues are covered.
