In patient Child Psychiatry

Essential Reading for clinicians, managers and researchers in child psychiatry, this authoritative book provides accessible coverage of essential theory as well as clear practical guidance to inpatient child psychiatric treatment. This method of treatment has fallen out of fashion in recent years in favour of community-based care, but remains a useful setting for treating more seriously ill patients. Bringing together contributions from across the profession, this book covers the 'state-of-the-art' in current clinical treatment, and sets a bold new agenda for the future, arguing that inpatient child psychiatric units retain great potential for creative, effective, relevant treatment.

Application of Basic Neuroscience to Child Psychiatry

The idea for this book developed during the course of several discussions among the editors while we were working together as staff scientists in the laboratories of the Clinical Neuro science Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health. It was a happy coincidence that the three of us, child psychiatrists with predominantly clinical interests, selected a collaborative bench research project involving neurotransmitter receptor characterization and regulation. We appreciated the relevance of our work to child psychiatry and wished for a forum to share the excitement we enjoyed in the laboratory with our clinical colleagues. Moreover, it seemed to us that much of the pharmacological research in child psychiatry proceeded on an empirical basis, often without a compelling neurochemical rationale. This could reflect the paucity of neurochemical data that exists in child psychiatry and the very limited understanding of the pathophysiology in most psychiatric disorders that occur in childhood. Also, we bemoaned the fact that there was a virtual absence of meaningful interchange between clinical investigators in child psychiatry and their colleagues in the neurosciences. We believed that an edited book appealing to clinicians and basic scientists could serve as an initial effort to foster interchange between them. The editors wish to emphasize that this book is viewed as only a beginning in the process of interchange that must take place.

Pathological Child Psychiatry and the Medicalization of Childhood

Currently, it is common practice among the child psychiatric establishment to prescribe powerful and potentially addictive drugs to children who have emotional or behavioural problems. Pathological Child Psychiatry and the Medicalization of Childhood is a strong challenge to this way of thinking. Sami Timimi uses a wide variety of sources that shape our understanding including his personal experiences to highlight the role of culture, beliefs, science, social hierarchy and power, in shaping our understanding of childhood problems and how to deal with them. He urges professionals who work with children to question their assumptions in a manner that will enable them to access a greater variety of potentially helpful therapeutic frameworks. Since the 1960s, psychiatry has had to learn to accommodate critical analysis of its beliefs and methods. The legitimacy of its core assumptions continues to be questioned. Now child psychiatry too must engage with such a debate, if it wishes to develop into a genuinely democratic and inclusive profession. Pathological Child Psychiatry and the Medicalization of Childhood will be of great interest to professionals and trainees in psychiatry and child psychiatry, social work, family therapy and other psychotherapies for children and adolescents.

Child Psychiatry

"The present volume, which is the first textbook of child psychiatry in the English language, is offered as an attempt to cover the entire field of children's personality disorders on a broad, objective, unbiased, and practical basis. It has grown out of everyday contacts with pediatricians, consultation work in a large pediatric clinic and dispensary, collaboration with private practitioners and with the various child-caring agencies of the community (schools, orphanages, hospitals, welfare groups, courts, custodial and correctional institutions), and teaching activities at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. It is intended primarily for physicians and medical students but is also meant to be of help to all those interested in children's behavior problems: social workers, psychologists, sociologists, educators, juvenile court workers, etc."--Introduction.
