Textbook of Adolescent Psychiatry (Arnold Publication)

Textbook of Adolescent Psychiatry (Arnold Publication) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adolescent Psychiatry is the first text-reference to provide such in-depth, comprehensive, and practical coverage of this specialist area. There are many questions pertinent to adolescence alone and these are highlighted throughout the book. Starting with the important aspects of normal development, the reader is then taken on to risk-behaviour and risk-taking, the special issues in adolescent psychiatry, how to assess the patient, clinical conditions, treatment, and finally the forensic and legal aspects of adolescent care and treatment.

The authoritative editor group has brought together a high calibre team of contributors to produce the ultimate text, both for accessible clinical reference, and as a teaching tool.

This book will prove invaluable to all general psychiatrists in dealing with their adolescent patients, to specialist child and adolescent psychiatrists, and all those involved in the care and treatment of adolescents with mental health problems.
