1 Review
Ideal for the general practitioner, this practical guide to pediatric mental health explains the various systems involved in children's mental health (i.e. schools, social services, the legal and mental health systems) and addresses common mental health problems seen frequently in practice. Included are chapters on learning disabilities, autism, ADHD, aggression, substance abuse, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and a host of other difficulties. Each chapter is written by a general pediatrician and a child psychiatrist. Blending these perspectives, the authors present a pragmatic and current approach to issues of office evaluation, assessment, and treatment, including pediatric psychopharmacology.
