Average Rating 

"This is a practical and quick reference for clinicians treating children and adolescents with psychiatric disorders. The authors' practical approach, organization, and clarity make it easy to read. Since the 2006 edition, several new psychotropic medications have come on the market and there have been new FDA approvals as well as ongoing research on the use of older medications for several conditions. This is an important contribution to the field of child psychopharmacology and is worthy of a place in any clinician's library." - Seleena M.
