Psychiatric Times, 01-JAN-07 -- "This books finds a place in this special niche by providing comprehensive yet practical information that can be used n a variety of settings. This textbook is relevant, up-to-date, and concise. It is an essential addition to the library of any primary care clinician or psychiatrist who treats children and adolescents with mental illnesses. This textbook would also serve as a wonderful review for a child psychiatrist who is preparing for the boards. Chapter 2, "Psychiatric Rating Scales: Theory and Practice," is particularly helpful because it succinctly reviews rating scales from a variety of symptom categories without getting excessively technical. Other noteworthy features are clinical vignettes that appear in most chapters, suggested readings (including websites), and practical easy-to-read medication reference tables. The book does the job it set out to do, which is to help educate and perhaps empower those poised to treat this challenging yet rewarding population."
