M. Elena Garralda and Jean-Philippe Raynaud aim to increase awareness of child and adolescent mental health within an international framework that gives special consideration to problems arising in different contexts around the world and through expert views supported by empirical evidence and considering clinical implications. Chapters address the effects on child mental health of issues including secular changes in family composition in both Western and Eastern countries, rapid industrialization, poverty, deprivation, adoption, refugee status, and aboriginal life. The book also considers emerging issues, such as cyber addiction, PTSD, ADHD across different cultures, and the autism 'epidemic.'

MEDIA REVIEWS
Increasing Awareness of Child and Adolescent Mental Health is a remarkable book, in a single volume providing professionals and others interested in child mental health an overview of the major contemporary issues relevant to child mental health. These include, among others, urbanization and the nuclear family, the unintended consequences of the single-child policy in China, and the concern over an epidemic of autism. With strong, evidence-based chapters by leading authors, this book is exciting to read and learn from. -- Myron L. Belfer, MD, MPA, Harvard Medical School
This book provides a rich, stimulating, and up-to-date account of the state of child mental health throughout the world. I can thoroughly recommend it to all child and adolescent mental health professionals who wish to broaden their horizons and gain new perspectives on their own practice. -- Philip Graham, emeritus professor of child psychiatry, Institute of Child Health, London
The book provides an excellent review of child and adolescent mental health issues from a transcultural perspective. The 13 chapters, written by experienced clinicians and researchers, focus on influences on child mental health, individual problems/disorders, and treatment issues. A special feature of the book is the inclusion of psychosocial problems like the mental health of refugee children, the impact of the one-child policy in China, and changes in psychiatric problems in Japan. The book can warmly be recommended to an international readership. -- Helmut Remschmidt, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Philipps-University, Germany
