Psychiatric and Behavioural Disorders in Developmental Disabilities and Mental Retardation Reviews


'There are other postgraduate textbooks in the speciality which have appeared in recent years that are well written. However, this probably provides the most comprehensive perspective to date ... essential reading for the well-established professional who wishes to be brought up to date, and for the trainee wanting to gain new knowledge in the field. The book should be on the bookshelf of every departmental library.' British Journal of Psychiatry
'It is wide-ranging, stimulating (each chapter altered my perspective), and I found it readable... Each of the chapters is a gem... strongly recommend this as a book that should be browsed through by anyone involved in this work.' T. P. Berney, Journal of Child Psychology
'... a comprehensive and informative review of the evaluation and treatment of psychiatric disorders among persons with developmental disabilities ... It offers the clinician a framework with which to think about this population, and it thoughtfully presents strategies for adapting standard psychiatric practice.' Alice Graham-Brown, Psychiatric Services
'Readers will find extremely helpful Janicki and Dalton's table detailing the four stages of dementia along with associated symptoms, cognitive characteristics, behavioral manifestations, and suggestions for intervention.' Connie Kasari, American Journal on Mental Retardation
'A refreshing theme of the book is the need to integrate parallel clinical, service and research data, especially from behavioural, biological and psychiatric diagnostic models and perspectives ... Outstanding chapters include: Sturmey - classification, Gilberg - autistic spectrum disorders and Jacobson - dual diagnosis services. We recommend this book to clinical professionals, postgraduate students, service managers and researchers involved in meeting the mental health needs of people with learning disabilities.' Josu Asiain and Shaun Gravestock, Psychological Medicine
'... an excellent resource for students and professionals on the topic of behavioral and psychiatric disorders in people with developmental disorders. The chapters are well-written, contain generally good reviews of the relevant scientific and clinical literature, and have the distinctive advantage of dealing with the complex issues of dual diagnosis from diverse perspectives.' Marc J. Tasse, American Journal on Mental Retardation
"Each of the 26 chapters is a gem...I strongly recommend this as a book that should be browsed through by anyone involved in this work." Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry
"This excellent postgraduate textbook provides a broad critical appraisal of psychiatric and behaviour disorders in individuals with developmental/learning disability...and highlights the considerable progress that has been made in recent years...essential reading for the well-established professional who wishes to be brought up to date, and for the trainee wanting to gain new knowledge in the field. The book should be on the bookshelf of every departmental library." British Journal of Psychiatry
"...a timely addition to the literature on the subject and a great improvement on recent books with a similar theme...highly recommended for all professionals working in the field of mental health in intellectual disability today." Journal of Intellectual Disability Research
"This book allows well-respected clinicians, academics and service researchers critically to review clinical, service and research progress over the past decade and to reflect on future directions ... refreshing." Psychological Medicine
