About the Authors
  • The field of child and adolescent psychopharmacology is rapidly growing, but psychopharmacological treatments for children cannot be straightforwardly extrapolated from adult studies, which presents clinicians with assessment and prescribing challenges. This important book synthesises research findings about drug treatment of a broad range of psychiatric disorders in children, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar mania, aggression in pervasive developmental disorder, Tourette's syndrome and substance abuse. They examine the issues of tolerability and efficacy, and appropriate use, within a social and developmental context. For each disorder, pharmacotherapy is discussed in the wider context of neurobiology, etiology, diagnosis and treatment. This will be essential reading for all mental health professionals to inform practice and improve patient outcomes.

    • Provides clinicians with authoritative information to inform best practice and improve patient outcomes
    • Synthesises all available information about modern pharmacologic treatments for young people
    • Sets pharmacological treatments in a broad developmental and neurobiological context

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… a very welcome addition to the still relatively small number of reference texts in child and adolescent psychopharmacology … the overall quality of the text is excellent … this book makes an important contribution to a field where clinical practice tends to run ahead of the clinical evidence-base and remain relatively uninformed by basic neuroscience. This book should be essential reading for all child psychiatry trainees …' Journal of Child Psychology

    '… a very well written and clearly set out book … excellent book for anyone who wants a current insight into how medication is used in child and adolescent psychiatry, how different it may be to treatment in adults.' Journal of Pharmacy Practice and Research

    'The chapters offer timely and expert overviews of a complex and evolving field.' Marc Sandrolini, Divine.com

    '… should serve as a good reference guide for the clinicians. I particularly liked the chapters on Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Anxiety and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.' Pediatric Rehabilitation

    'This is an interesting and worthwhile book.' Psychological Medicine
