The Art of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Paperback / softback Book

The Art of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Paperback / softback


The Art of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is an engaging and authoritative account of the essential skills required to practice child and adolescent psychiatry for all those working in children's mental health, from trainees to experienced professionals in paediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy.

The practical tasks of meeting the child and family, planning treatments, and working with colleagues are all covered, building on existing texts that mainly focus on diagnostic criteria, protocols, and laws.

This book respects the evidence base, while also pointing out its limitations, and suggests ways in which to deal with these.

Psychiatry is placed within broader frameworks including strategy, learning, management, philosophy, ethics, and interpersonal relations.

With over 200 educational vignettes of the authors' vast experience in the field, the book is also highly illustrated.

The Art of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is an indispensable guide to thoughtful practice in children's mental health.
