Summary Updated to reflect significant changes to psychiatric nomenclature and criteria in DSM-5, this fifth edition of the Concise Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry prunes older content while distilling and incorporating clinically relevant findings. Reorganized chapters feature tables of selected diagnostic criteria from the DSM-5 for quick reference. Sections on specific disorders and clinical situations include brief descriptions of relevant treatment methods. An informative chapter is devoted specifically to pharmacological therapies-from stimulant medications and antidepressants to antipsychotics and anticonvulsants-and their use in a range of disorders. Though complex theoretical notions, new research, and areas of controversy have been simplified in the interest of brevity and ease of reference, each chapter provides suggested additional readings for those interested in studying a particular topic in further detail, making the Concise Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry an indispensable primer on the field for medical and mental health students and clinical trainees, as well as an ideal, quick-reference update for practicing physicians, nurses, and advanced practice nurses.
