Psychotic symptoms have traditionally been rationalized and disregarded as products of the child's imagination. There has been a professional reluctance to acknowledge that children could suffer from severe psychotic disorders akin to adult subjects, and that these symptoms merit a comprehensive and systematic evaluation. Now, the area of child and adolescent psychoses is gaining progressive recognition and interest, and has stimulated a keen interest in the examination and detection of psychotic symptoms for diagnostic, treatment and prognostic purposes of a variety of psychiatric disorders of children and adolescents. The purpose of this book is to demystify the interviewing diagnostic process of psychosis in children and adolescents, and to provide a resource for treatment.
