Product description


One is struck by the scope and depth of the text, which leave the reader feeling empowered and inspired by how far the field has come in establishing a solid, scientifically rigorous reservoir of knowledge to guide one's practice...The writing style is very concise and crisp, facilitating efficient consumption of the materials. The information compiled is balanced, offering multiple points of view within each category as appropriate, including contradicting perspectives along with evidence in their support... I found Dulcan's textbook of child and adolescent psychiatry to be the best of its kind. It provides an authoritative, concise review of the most current literature in a manner that is balanced and intelligible. The material was organized in a readily digestible manner, with well-written narratives, bulleted summaries, and easy-to-read tables. This text would serve well as a definitive and comprehensive reference and guide to any provider assessing and treating youths with mental illness in any setting. Mary N. Cook, M.D., The American Journal of Psychiatry

From the Inside Flap

Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry offers a fresh look at the field of child mental health. It is useful to trainees and practitioners in a variety of specialties, providing the most up-to-date and comprehensive text in child and adolescent psychiatry as presented by more than 110 contributors who distill their knowledge and expertise into a single authoritative volume.

Chapters on evaluation are developmentally focused, with a separate chapter for each age range. Eighteen chapters focus on specific disorders, while "special topics" include new chapters on bereavement and traumatic grief; ethnic, cultural, and religious issues; aggression and violence; children of ill parents; legal/ethical issues; and telepsychiatry. The text's wide-ranging emphasis on treatment -- expanded from seven to eighteen chapters -- includes psychopharmacology, brain-based innovative treatments, and a range of psychosocial approaches that focus on individual, family, therapeutic milieu, and systemic models of care. A new section on consultation provides guidance on interactions with schools, primary care practitioners, and the juvenile justice system.

Both scholarly and practical, Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a core resource for child and adolescent psychiatry training and will also serve as a reference for practitioners in psychiatry, pediatrics, neurology, psychology, nursing, and social work.
