Though many of the ethical issues important in adult mental health are of relevance in the child, there are a considerable number of issues special to children. Many of the dilemmas faced pertain to diagnosis, treatment, the protection of the child, as well as the child's own developing intelligence and moral judgement. In addition, there are cases where the interests of the parents may conflict with the interests of the child. For example, the interests of a mother with schizophrenia might best be served by her continuing to look after her child, but the child's interests might require that a substitute placement be found. Diagnostic Dilemmas in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is the first in the IPPP series to explore this highly complex topic. It brings together a collection of clinicians and philosophers who consider a range of topics central to the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents affected by mental disorders.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is about time that a book focuses entirely on child and adolescent psychiatry. Diagnostic Dilemmas in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry analyzes, critiques, and offers alternative perspectives on a range of topics including concepts of childhood mental disease, diagnosis and over-diagnosis, the use of neuroimaging of children, and issues of comorbidity, all informed by intersections of philosophy and psychiatry. Readers will also find clear critiques of particular diagnoses such as conduct disorder, pediatric bipolar disorder, depression, and ADHD. The editors are to be commended for putting such a fine volume together. This volume is a must-read for anyone interested in better understanding childhood behavior, and distress and the values that inform our judgments: child psychiatrists, philosophers, social workers, psychologists, and sociologists. * Nancy Nyquist Potter, PhD *
