Originally published in 2006, this authoritative clinical handbook provides a detailed overview of the main disorders encountered by child and adolescent psychiatrists in clinical practice, ranging from eating, sleep and affective disorders to substance abuse, gender identity disorder and sexual abuse. The approach is evidence based and emphasis is on good clinical practice and quality control of patient care. In contrast to other books in the field, the authors' intention is not to cover exhaustively all the relevant science, but rather to present in condensed form any research findings that are significant for clinical practice. For coherence, each chapter is constructed in the same way: introduction, definition and classification, epidemiology, the clinical picture, aetiology, treatment and outcome. The disorders covered are based on the ICD- 10 and DSM-IV classifications, and appendices include documents for assessment of intervention planning and evaluation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'This substantial textbook, edited by well-known academics and clinicians, certainly provides a comprehensive guide to all the common disorders that clinicians working within child and adolescent mental health services are likely to encounter ... I have enjoyed reading it and will undoubtedly use it. It is also a good resource for teaching medical students about the neurobiology underpinning schizophrenia or for an overview of the prodrome.' British Journal of Psychiatry
Review of the hardback: '... [I] have enjoyed this book. It is clear that the ethos of the authors is multidisciplinary and inclusive of parents, carers, schools and social care in the management of children and adolescents with disorders ... I felt I could translate what the author was describing into my daily clinical experience ... The tables and diagrams are ideal for the busy clinician, they are clear and informative ... I think this speaks for the utility of the book, as it is intended to be a synthesis, a 'desk book' for clinicians, and I think it succeeds very well indeed. For this reason I strongly recommend it.' Psychological Medicine
Review of the hardback: 'I was delighted to review the book. It is an easy to read, comprehensive and enjoyable resource which will be well received by those concerned with the mental health of children and their families.' Quarterly Journal of Mental Health
"The text - which in no way deems itself a revolutionary call to arms, alerting fellow psychiatrists to the inherent problems with the current psychopharmacological database in the treatment of childhood psychopathology - provides a rich example of the clear differences in evidence-based treatments available in the area of pediatric psychopathology." Jonathan Weinand, Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books
