"This book would be especially valuable as a teaching tool in a course on diagnosis and treatment of child and adolescent mental health because it provides comprehensive, relevant, and well-organized presentations of commonly seen disorders in a useful and thought-provoking format."-- "Lauren M. Sitzer, M.D., Psychiatric Services" "This is a well-constructed, well-conceived book that appears to be successful as a teaching and learning tool for trainees and potentially more experienced clinicians. The case-based format is used particularly well to instruct readers on how to approach cases rationally and how to integrate assessment tools and scientific evidence into the process of decision-making. It also would be quite useful for child and adolescent psychiatrists preparing for the oral board exam as a way to practice and improve their skills in formulation and treatment planning."-- "Christine J. Choe, MD, DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW SERVICE"Synopsis:
The book's foundation is its compelling and meticulously narrated cases. Each patient has a narrative, and it is the clinician's responsibility to frame that narrative in a way that is beneficial to the patient and promotes the appropriate intervention. The cases constitute the heart of the book, which is organized into four parts: Classic Cases, where the diagnosis is fairly clear; Comorbid Complexity, where the diagnosis may be complicated by co-existing conditions; Toughest Cases, where the diagnosis is unclear or the patient has been unresponsive to treatment; and, finally, Kids in Crisis, where the patient's psychopathology exists in the context of extreme social stressors.
