This brand-new fourth volume in Stahl’s Case Studies series presents a selection of clinical case studies in child and adolescent psychopharmacology, taken from Dr. Strawn’s clinics and consultations. These cases illustrate common questions that are routinely asked by Dr. Strawn’s peers in consultations and which represent dilemmas in the day-to-day practice of pediatric psychopharmacology. Followings a consistent, user-friendly layout, each case features icons, tips and questions about diagnosis and management as it progresses over time, a pre-case self-assessment question, followed by the correct answers at the end of the case. Formatted in alignment with the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology’s maintenance of psychiatry speciality certification, cases address multifaceted issues in a relevant and understandable way. Covering a wide-ranging and representative selection of clinical scenarios, each case is followed through the complete clinical encounter, from start to resolution, acknowledging all the complications, issues, decisions, twists and turns along the way.
