Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Mina K. Dulcan

editore: American Psychiatric Publishing

pagine: 1205

Since publication of the first edition, Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry has become the recognized standard in child and adolescent psychiatry textbooks. In this thoroughly revised second edition, the editor and chapter authors, leaders in the field of child and adolescent mental health, have again provided a complete, state-of-the-art textbook with notable updates and improvements that enhance accessibility and learning. The new edition is more concise and compact, while remaining comprehensive in scope. The number of chapters has been reduced to sharpen the book's focus on topics most relevant to clinical work. The textbook reflects the new DSM-5 classifications that all clinicians and trainees must know to function in today's health care environment. Many other features contribute to the textbook's user-friendly design and broad appeal: *Chapters on the disorders (neurodevelopmental, psychiatric, and those affecting somatic function) have a consistent structure of definition and clinical description, diagnosis, epidemiology, comorbidity, etiology and risk factors, prevention, course and prognosis, evaluation, and treatments, making it easy for readers to locate information and facilitating learning. *The textbook is useful as both a core textbook for child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship training and a reference for a wide variety of health care professionals, including pediatricians, family physicians, general psychiatrists, child neurologists, psychologists, advanced practice nurses, and psychiatric social workers. *The full range of psychosocial treatments is included, focusing on individuals, families, therapeutic milieus, and systemic models of care. The increasing emphasis on taking mental health care beyond the clinician's office is reflected in chapters on consultations related to schools and to primary care. *A section on specialized topics includes chapters on a range of critically important issues, including evidence-based practice, cultural and religious issues, legal and ethical issues, and telehealth. *Each chapter in the book ends with "Summary Points," take-away messages that emphasize the most important concepts and promote consolidation of knowledge. *The section "Additional Resources" includes "Selected Books for Professionals" and "Web Sites for Professionals, Patients, and Families," which provide avenues for further study and connections with others treating or living with mental health issues. Reflecting both the art and the science of this fascinating field, Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Second Edition, provides authoritative, practical guidance and is a resource that mental health practitioners at all levels of experience should have on their desks and handheld devices.

editore: American Psychiatric Publishing

pagine: 390

Since the 2003 release of the third edition of Concise Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, research on mental illness in children and the practical applications of this research have been evolving at a rapid pace. With these changes have come enhanced methods of assessment and treatment. Topics covered in this text include: * The use of DSM-IV-TR for diagnosing psychiatric disorders in children and ways in which adult criteria can be adapted for use in young patients.* An outline of the Axis I conditions especially relevant to children and adolescents that may be a focus of clinical attention.* A review of how childhood psychological disorders often occur in combinations and require broad-spectrum rating scales to supplement the diagnostic process and help avoid overly narrow focus on the presenting problem.* New trends in treatment that include a consideration of biological factors, multimodal treatment approaches, multidisciplinary teams, and use of evidence-based interventions.* Ways to help both the patient and the parent or caregiver through the treatment process for better outcomes.* Identification of the strengths and vulnerabilities that are critical to treatment plans, such as the family's financial resources and the child's social environment, which includes school, neighborhood, and social support networks, all of which influence the choice of treatment strategy. Concise Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry provides professionals in psychiatric settings, pediatric offices and hospitals, schools, and juvenile justice settings with an efficient and easily portable reference to pediatric mental health topics of concern to practicing clinicians and students alike. Designed to fit into a lab coat or jacket pocket, this manual offers the information that most experts agree is relevant to helping children and adolescents overcome mental disorders.
