Offering an inductive nosologic approach to diagnosis, this text discusses diagnostic processes in child and adolescent psychiatry, describes DSM-IV categories, and addresses common problems seen in everyday practice. In this second edition, the chapter on suicide includes other risk-taking and dangerous behaviors and a new chapter highlights the physician's role in integrating schools into the care of children and adolescents. The chapter on common behavioral problems has been expanded and the chapter on child abuse has been divided into one chapter addressing attachment problems and another on responses to trauma. The volume is interspersed with text boxes containing practical information, tips and key clinical questions.
