The introductory section covers assessment of the patient, treatment planning and a review of CBT and play therapy. Each chapter in section two reviews a clinical disorder in detail, giving diagnostic criteria and clinical management advice and is enhanced by case studies. The final section covers special topics such as foster care, adoption, loss and grief, sleep disorders, forensics and socioeconomics.
Clinical Child Psychiatry, Second Edition provides invaluable guidance for all practitioners: interns and residents entering the field, pediatricians and family physicians who now provide the preponderance of child psychiatric services, and experienced clinicians encountering new areas of practice.
