This important book synthesizes the most recent research findings pertaining to drug treatments of various psychiatric disorders in children, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar mania, aggression in pervasive developmental disorder, Tourette's syndrome, and substance abuse. The chapters examine the issues of tolerability and efficacy, and inappropriate over-use, within a social and developmental context. For each disorder, pharmacotherapy is discussed in the wider context of neurobiology, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment.

"...a welcome addition to the literature on psychopharmacological treatment of children and adolescents." MK Nixon, MD, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry

" interesting book to explore..." Alun Flynn, Educational Psychology in Practice

"This book will be of interest to the practicing clinician, and to the advanced trainee, who is seeking an up-to-date, systematic review of child and adolescent psychopharmacology, from the perspectives of history, theory and practice." Julia W. Tossell

"...a very worthwhile publication, containing a wealth of information. I doubt whether anyone prescribing medication for young people with psychiatric disorders can afford to be without access to it. It should certainly be in the libraries of centres in which child and adolescent patients are treated, and it will be a while yet before further research seriously reduces its usefulness." The Canadian Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review

"All chapters are well-structured and clearly written...the book is a useful tool for all health professionals dealing with psychiatric conditions of childhood and adolescence." European Journal of Paediatric Neurology

"This book is a very welcome addition to the still relatively small number of reference texts in child and adolescent psychopharmacology.... The overall quality of the text is excellent.... This book should be essential reading for all child psychiatry trainees and will be a valuable resource for other child mental health professionals." Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry

"The author is a well-known and respected authority in pediatric psychopharmacology...The chapters offer timely and expert overviews of a complex and evolving field." Doody's Notes

"This is a very well written and clearly set out book. All fifteen chapters are thoroughly referenced.... It should be an essential text for pharmacists attached to child and adolescent psychiatry units and those providing specialised drug information services for children. It could also be an intriguing read for anyone with a fascination in psychopharmacology or an interest in the quality use of medication." Journal of Pharmacy Practice and Research
