Dulcan’s Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry offers a fresh look at the field of child mental health. It is useful to trainees and practitioners in a variety of specialties, providing the most up-to-date and comprehensive text in child and adolescent psychiatry as presented by more than 110 contributors who distill their knowledge and expertise into a single authoritative volume.

Both the organization of the original text and the structure of the chapters have been overhauled to better communicate the clinical art and wisdom of child psychiatry while remaining grounded firmly in clinical science. Each chapter highlights what we know about evidence-based practices in assessment and treatment, while sections on future research point toward current pressing questions. At the end of each chapter are educational summary points. Of the 65 chapters, 56 feature new lead authors, chosen to represent the expertise of disciplines ranging from pediatrics and neurology to sleep medicine and family therapy. Among its key features:

  • Chapters on evaluation are developmentally focused, with a separate chapter for each age range.
  • The section on diagnosis and assessment has been reconfigured and includes a new chapter on neurological examination and the use of EEG and imaging.
  • Eighteen chapters on specific disorders encompass clinical description, diagnosis, epidemiology, comorbidity, etiology, prevention, prognosis, evaluation, treatment approaches, and research directions.
  • Special topics include new chapters on bereavement and traumatic grief; ethnic, cultural, and religious issues; aggression and violence; and fundamentals of genetics relevant to child and adolescent psychiatry.
  • Additional chapters address special clinical considerations such as children of ill parents, legal/ethical issues, and telepsychiatry.
  • Wide-ranging emphasis on treatment—expanded from seven to eighteen chapters—includes psychopharmacology, brain-based innovative treatments, and a spectrum of psychosocial approaches that focus on individual, family, therapeutic milieu, and systemic models of care.
  • A new section on consultation provides guidance on interactions with schools, primary care practitioners, and the juvenile justice system.

Scholarly and practical, Dulcan’s Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a core resource for child and adolescent psychiatry training and will also serve as a reference for practitioners in psychiatry, pediatrics, neurology, psychology, nursing, and social work.
