Editorial Reviews

"This book is an excellent resource not only for mental health clinicians, but also for pediatricians and physicians in general practice. It is applicable to all levels of knowledge graduate students in their first year of training to physicians who have been practicing for a considerable amount of time. It is very interesting and helpful to read a text that provides a perspective on pediatric mental health from another country. Clinicians can be of even greater help to children when they acquire knowledge from sources outside their own region."--Metapsychology Online
