Practical Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology Summary


Practical Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology by Edited by Stan Kutcher (Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia)

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.

Practical Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology Reviews


'... 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
"...a welcome addition to the literature on psychopharmacological treatment of children and adolescents." MK Nixon, MD, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry
"...an interesting book to explore..." Alun Flynn, Educational Psychology in Practice
"This book will be of interest to the practicing clinician, and to the advanced trainee, who is seeking an up-to-date, systematic review of child and adolescent psychopharmacology, from the perspectives of history, theory and practice." Julia W. Tossell
"...a very worthwhile publication, containing a wealth of information. I doubt whether anyone prescribing medication for young people with psychiatric disorders can afford to be without access to it. It should certainly be in the libraries of centres in which child and adolescent patients are treated, and it will be a while yet before further research seriously reduces its usefulness." The Canadian Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review
"All chapters are well-structured and clearly written...the book is a useful tool for all health professionals dealing with psychiatric conditions of childhood and adolescence." European Journal of Paediatric Neurology
"This book is 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 should be essential reading for all child psychiatry trainees and will be a valuable resource for other child mental health professionals." Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry
"The author is a well-known and respected authority in pediatric psychopharmacology...The chapters offer timely and expert overviews of a complex and evolving field." Doody's Notes
"This is a very well written and clearly set out book. All fifteen chapters are thoroughly referenced.... It should be an essential text for pharmacists attached to child and adolescent psychiatry units and those providing specialised drug information services for children. It could also be an intriguing read for anyone with a fascination in psychopharmacology or an interest in the quality use of medication." Journal of Pharmacy Practice and Research
