Editorial Reviews

Outstanding . . . . Each chapter includes a plethora of references, and occasional charts and graphs, which complemented and extended the written material extremely well. . . . A major strength of this book is the writing style. [It] reads like an annotated transcript of a didactic lecture delivered by a highly trained professor who makes sure that you understand what is being said before moving on. I would have no problem giving sections of this book to parents to read, or to schoolteachers during an in-service presentation. . . . I will recommend that our residency program and clinic purchase a copy.—Journal of Psychiatric PracticeProviding an unrivaled composition of data—and probably the most up-to-date review of the research—[Shatkin] offers an indispensable guide to anyone who wants to better understand and help children. While such a breadth of knowledge could be tiresome, Shatkin’s work is just the opposite. The writing is clear and concise, and the insights are not only useful, but fascinating. . . . Not only is it an all-encompassing review of our current understanding of child and adolescent psychopathology, but a handbook full of the most effective and evidence-based practices to treat them.—PsychCentralDelivers exactly what it promises—a thorough, fascinating, and, most of all, essential toolkit for those who work with children, adolescents, and their families.—From the Foreword by Harvey Karp, MD, author of The Happiest Baby on the Block[J]ust what its title promises: a clinically relevant, encompassing yet concise guide to child and adolescent mental health care….user-friendly, and the breadth of information presented is impressive….stands to be one of those ‘go-to’ resources that a wide range of clinicians will regularly pull from the shelf.—Psychiatric TimesThis book is extraordinary. For pre- and postdoctoral students, psychiatry and pediatric residents, therapists, teachers, and parents, it is an essential read. For established practitioners, this book is indispensable as an up-to-date scientific review of our current understanding of child and adolescent psychopathology and the evidence-based treatments that work. Dr. Shatkin has written a book that should be read and mastered by anyone who wishes to provide state-of-the-art mental health care for children, adolescents, and families.—Harold S. Koplewicz, MD, Founder and President, Child Mind InstituteBeyond providing clinical insights, this book offers an impressive synopsis of research in the field . . . . a well-written and relatively succinct overview of the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.—Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent PsychiatryI am certain that this book will directly improve the lives of millions of children suffering from mental illness.—David T. Feinberg, MD, MBA, President & CEO, Geisinger Health System
