Psychopharmacological treatment of children and adolescents is a rapidly evolving field. It has become clear that a "psychopharmacological way of thinking" provides a useful model for explaining the nature of disorders to children and their families. For the clinician, a similar approach helps explain why, when, what and how to proscribe more logical. This concise book covers all the recent advances, our current state of understanding of the neurobiological processes underlying these conditions and the various treatment options. When the psychopharmacology and neurochemistry involved are understood, the choice of drug or therapy for each child is less daunting. Treatment can be tailored to specific symptoms and disease profiles, with side effects anticipated and explained. This book provides the information clinicians need to make informed choices in this complex field.

'This is a very timely and welcome book. The clinical practice of child psychiatry has changed a great deal over the past ten years, with an increasing and (welcome) interesting psychopharmacology. This up-to-date account is very useful, and deserves to be widely read.' - R.C. Harrington, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Royal Manchester Children's Hospital

'This work will rightly find its place on the shelves of any medical library.' - Israel Journal of Psychiatry
