Carefully distilled from the authoritative resource in the field, Lewis's Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, 4th Edition, Essentials presents the most practical and clinically relevant information in a smaller, accessible text for all those involved with mental health care for children and adolescents. Chapters focus on specific disorders and syndromes and their diagnosis and treatment, as well as areas of interface such as pediatrics and the law. Compiled by Fred R. Volkmar and Andres Martin of the Yale Child Study Center, Essential should be in the library of all those who care for these young patients.
