"Delivers exactly what it promises-a thorough, fascinating, and, most of all, essential toolkit for those who work with children, adolescents, and their families." -- From the Foreword by Harvey Karp, MD, author of The Happiest Baby on the Block "[J]ust what its title promises: a clinically relevant, encompassing yet concise guide to child and adolescent mental health care... user-friendly, and the breadth of information presented is impressive... stands to be one of those 'go-to' resources that a wide range of clinicians will regularly pull from the shelf." -- Psychiatric Times "This book is extraordinary. For pre- and postdoctoral students, psychiatry and pediatric residents, therapists, teachers, and parents, it is an essential read. For established practitioners, this book is indispensable as an up-to-date scientific review of our current understanding of child and adolescent psychopathology and the evidence-based treatments that work. Dr. Shatkin has written a book that should be read and mastered by anyone who wishes to provide state-of-the-art mental health care for children, adolescents, and families." -- Harold S. Koplewicz, MD, Founder and President, Child Mind Institute "Beyond providing clinical insights, this book offers an impressive synopsis of research in the field ... a well-written and relatively succinct overview of the field of child and adolescent psychiatry." -- Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry "I am certain that this book will directly improve the lives of millions of children suffering from mental illness." -- David T. Feinberg, MD, MBA, President & CEO, Geisinger Health System
