Unpaid Annotation
This important textbook signals the "coming of age" of pharmacotherapy as an important mode of treatment for individuals 18 years of age and under. Highly comprehensive yet remarkably well-organized, optimistic while retaining a healthy scientific skepticism, this textbook has a number of unique features, including a strong focus on diagnostic issues relevant to dispensing psychotropic medications, useful comparisons of child and adult treatments, and a combination of a newcomer's perspective with the wisdom of experienced and renowned experts in the field.
