Spiral Binding


For pediatricians and other primary care doctors, Trivedi (psychiatry and human behavior, Brown Alpert Medical School) and Kershner (pediatrics and child and adolescent psychiatry, Children's Hospital Boston) offer a spiral-bound guide to treating common child and adolescent mental health problems. It provides algorithms to guide doctors through each step of the evaluation and treatment process and begins with chief complaints followed by brief guidelines for psychiatric diagnoses such as ADHD, autism, eating, mood, psychotic, and substance use disorders, and pharmacological, psychotherapeutic and psychosocial interventions. The authors focus on information primary care doctors may be less familiar with, address referrals, and briefly cover office issues. There is no index.
