Reviews

Overall, this is a great introduction to child andadolescent psychiatry. It provides a general overview and looks atspecific diagnoses and treatments, without getting bogged down intoo many details, or going beyond the level necessary for thetarget audience. It is up to date and accurate, and is a helpfulupdate to the previous edition. (Doody s,29 March 2013)
