Recent praise

“This book makes dry material more interesting and is pleasing to the eye… An abundance of new and old ideas, even for very savvy clinicians... An excellent purchase.”
M. M. Relja and M. Sachdev in Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology

“A ‘must-have’ for those prescribing psychotropic medications in children and adolescents. It remains by far the most user-friendly and comprehensive handbook available for prescribers, teachers, students, and others working or interested in the field of child and adolescent psychopharmacology.”
Pieter Joost van Wattum in Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

“Authoritatively and exhaustively compiles currently available information in a user-friendly form. The aim of the Handbook is to be a source of ‘fast facts’ for the busy aim it achieves splendidly.”
M. Gittelman, Editor of International Journal of Mental Health

“If you see children who are placed on psychotropic medications, this book clearly falls into your ‘must-have’ category.”
J. C. Courtney in Child Neuropsychology
