Description

Order code: TP 27

This document aims to dissipate the current cycle of limited data, limited use, potential misuse, and limited benefits to troubled children and their families. The overview presented attests to the authors belief that it is essential to apply a careful differential diagnosis, to assess psychiatric, social, cognitive, educational, and medico-neurological factors that may contribute to a child's clinical presentation, and to consider the use of pharmacotherapy as part of a broader treatment plan that encompasses all aspects of a child's life. This text is divided into eight principal sections: Introduction; General Considerations; Management; Psychotropics Commonly Used in Pediatric Psychiatry; Diagnostic Categories and Clinical Considerations; Case Vignettes; Conclusions; and Bibliography. It is an ideal, quick-read and in-depth primer for the clinician involved in child and adolescent psychiatry.
