Review
Dulcans Concise Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is an excellent resource for child and adolescent psychiatry practitioners, and trainees. This text is well written and extremely well organized. A particular strength of this guide is its focus upon topics relevant to child psychiatrists; inclusion of the new DSM-5 criteria; and easy access to the core elements of assessment, diagnosis and treatment. The Concise Guide broadly and comprehensively covers important areas, while providing enough depth to make it a useful review for busy clinicians, for students, and for those preparing for psychiatry examinations. I buy this book with each new edition and recommend it for my faculty and trainees. –Tami D. Benton, M.D., FAAP, FAACAP, Psychiatrist-in-Chief and Chair, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia

Dr. Dulcan and colleagues have done an outstanding job in summarizing the salient elements in a concise, digestible format. This guide will be helpful not only to trainees but to those preparing for MOC and more seasoned professionals looking for summaries on a variety of child mental health topics. This volume is a must for any mental health professionals bookshelf. –Oscar G. Bukstein, M.D., M.P.H., Associate Psychiatrist-in-Chief & Vice Chairman of Psychiatry, Training Director, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship, Boston Childrens Hospital; Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

The fifth edition of the Concise Guide to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry includes important DSM-5 updates and clearly defined reviews of new and changed diagnoses. The handy size, conciseness of chapters, and readability remain as hallmarks of this classic book. This edition will continue to be the favorite reference in our division for all medical students and residents because it is replete with highlights of all important areas of child and adolescent psychiatry. –Jeffrey Hunt, M.D., Professor and Program Director, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship and Combined Program in Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Child Psychiatry, Alpert Medical School of Brown University

Cytokines and Mental Health

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Cytokines and Mental Health
Jan 122019
 

Cytokines and Mental Health explores the relationship between cytokines, neural circuitry and mental health. It is interdisciplinary and “translational”, bringing together information that spans the spectrum from the molecular and cellular levels to the patient and the clinic. Content includes chapters that discuss cytokine pathways in the brain, the neurochemical and neuroendocrine effects of cytokines, and the behavioral effects of cytokines including sickness behavior. These chapters in basic research are followed by a more clinical section that discusses the role of cytokines in neuropsychiatric disorders such as major depression, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease. The book offers different things to different people. It should be of great interest to neuroscientists and immunologists working in the field of psychoneuroimmunology. It would also greatly benefit mental health professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists and clinicians of diverse background who are interested in mind-body medicine.

Neuropsychodynamic Psychiatry

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Neuropsychodynamic Psychiatry
Jan 062019
 

This book presents a comprehensive neuropsychodynamic strategy for treating psychiatric disorders. Rather than pursuing an exclusively biological, psychological, or psychodynamic approach, it offers a methodology that links all three aspects in a unifying, integrative model. Central to this approach is the view of the brain as a bio-psychosocial organ in a neuro-ecological model, rather than the purely neuronal model often presupposed in current neuroscience and psychiatry.
Moreover, the book views psychopathological symptoms as spatiotemporal disorders of the altered spatiotemporal structure spanning the brain and its surrounding world. The relation between one of the core symptoms and altered neuronal activity calls for the development of integrated, circular neuropsychodynamic models of psychopathological symptoms in severe psychiatric disorders and their treatment.

Helping Kids in Crisis: Managing Psychiatric Emergencies in Children and Adolescents

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Helping Kids in Crisis: Managing Psychiatric Emergencies in Children and Adolescents
Jan 042019
 

Helping Kids in Crisis: Managing Psychiatric Emergencies in Children and Adolescents provides expert guidance to practitioners responding to high-stakes situations, such as children considering or attempting suicide, cutting or injuring themselves purposely, and becoming aggressive or violently destructive. Children experiencing behavioral crises frequently reach critical states in venues that were not designed to respond to or support them — in school, for example, or at home among their highly stressed and confused families. Professionals who provide services to these children must be able to quickly determine threats to safety and initiate interventions to deescalate behaviors, often with limited resources. The editors and authors have extensive experience at one of the busiest and best regional referral centers for children with psychiatric emergencies, and have deftly translated their expertise into this symptom-based guide to help non-psychiatric clinicians more effectively and compassionately care for this challenging population.The book is designed for ease of use and its structure and features are helpful and supportive: – The book is written for practitioners in hospital or community-based settings, including physicians in training, pediatricians who work in office-based or emergency settings, psychologists, social workers, school psychologists, guidance counselors, and school nurses — professionals for whom child psychiatric resources are few.- Clear risk and diagnostic assessment tools allow clinicians working in settings without access to child mental health professionals to think like trained emergency room child psychiatrists–from evaluation to treatment. – The content is symptom-focused, enabling readers to swiftly identify the appropriate chapter, with decision trees and easy-to-read tables to use for quick de-escalation and risk assessment. – A guide to navigating the educational system, child welfare system, and other systems of care helps clinicians to identify and overcome systems-level barriers to obtain necessary treatment for their patients.- Finally, the book provides an extensive review of successful models of emergency psychiatric care from across the country to assist clinicians and hospital administrators in program design. An abundance of case examples of common emergency symptoms or behaviors provides professionals with critical, concrete tools for diagnostic evaluation, risk assessment, decision making, de-escalation, and safety planning. Helping Kids in Crisis: Managing Psychiatric Emergencies in Children and Adolescents is a vital resource for clinicians facing high-risk challenges on the front lines to help them intervene effectively, relieve suffering, and keep their young patients safe.

Implications of Psychopharmacology to Psychiatry: Biological, Nosological, and Therapeutical Concepts

 Pharmacology, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Implications of Psychopharmacology to Psychiatry: Biological, Nosological, and Therapeutical Concepts
Jan 022019
 

The discovery of chlorpromazine 40 years ago and of other compounds for the specific treatment of psychiatric disorders had marked influence on clinical psychiatry and basic neuroscience. Since then, the development of psychopharmacology and theories of psychiatric disorders have become closely interrelated. On the occasion of the 70th birthday of Hanns Hippius – one of the pioneers of clinical psychopharmacology – leading experts in this field and related disciplines met to present and discuss their views and theories on psychiatric disorders. Future perspectives of drug development, genetic research in psychiatry, nosological and diagnostic concepts, and strategies for more specific treatment of various psychiatric disorders were presented. This was a unique occasion for most of the prominent and leading experts worldwide to contribute to this book. The reader is given broad insight into the research and clinical perspectives of psychiatry.

Handbook of Psychological Approaches with Violent Offenders: Contemporary Strategies and Issues

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Handbook of Psychological Approaches with Violent Offenders: Contemporary Strategies and Issues
Dec 292018
 

The past quarter-century has witnessed a dramatic upsurge of violent crime in the United States and abroad. In this country, the rise in violent criminal activity has been consistently documented in such published accounts as the Uniform Crime Reports and the Statistical Handbook on Violence in America, published by the FBI and the Vio­ lence Research Group, respectively. Further, social scientists-particularly those working in the fields of sociology and psychology-have provided a convergence of findings attesting to the magnitude of one of today’s most significant social problems: domestic violence (e. g. , spouse, child, and elder abuse). Such efforts have served as the impetus for heightened clinical and investigative activity in the area of violent be­ havior. Indeed, a wide range of mental health experts (such as psychologists, psychi­ atrists, social workers, counselors, and rehabilitation specialists) have endeavored to focus on strategies and issues in research and treatment for violent individuals and their victims. The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive and timely examination of current psychological approaches with violent criminal offenders. Despite the fact that we continue to have much to learn about perpetrators of violent acts, in recent an increasingly large body of empirical data have been adduced about this years issue. However, these data generally have appeared in disparate journals and books. That being the case, it is our belief that such a handbook now is warranted.

Handbook of Psychotherapies with Children and Families

 Pediatrics, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Handbook of Psychotherapies with Children and Families
Dec 292018
 

The aim of this book on psychotherapies with children and families is to present a comprehensive overview of the current array of intervention approaches in the child mental health field. There is a focus on the integration of theory, research, and practice throughout the book. The book proceeds from the more global pre­ sentations of basic theoretical approaches to applications of these approaches with specific problems and populations. It then presents more integrated intervention approaches and overviews of the research literature. One of the unique features of this book is its focus on future directions for each approach, both in clinical prac­ tice and in research. A second unique feature is its structured format across di­ verse approaches with a focus on empirical validation of approaches. Another innovation is the presentation of interventions that integrate major components of different theoretical approaches. Thus, the book reflects the current trends in the field of interventions with specific problems and populations, empirical valida­ tion of the approach, and the integration of treatment approaches. There are five major sections in this book. Part I consists of four chapters that address a variety of issues related to child psychotherapy. Chapter 1 by the editors examines the historical roots of child psychotherapy and explores current trends in the treatment of diverse child disorders. It emphasizes the movement to “treat­ ments that work” and sets the stage for the chapters that follow.
