Overall, this is a great introduction to child and adolescent psychiatry. It provides a general overview and looks at specific diagnoses and treatments, without getting bogged down in too many details, or going beyond the level necessary for the target audience. It is up to date and accurate, and is a helpful update to the previous edition. (Doody s, 29 March 2013)
