Editorial Reviews

Review

[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 Times)

Beyond 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 Psychiatry)

This 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. Jess 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 Director, NYU Child Study Center)

The book that I wish I had written. Fact-based and supported by references, this comprehensive, practical, and user-friendly text is a must-read for all child mental health practitioners (whether in practice or in training), parents of children and adolescents, and the general public as well. Dr. Shatkin’s knowledge, wealth of clinical and teaching experience, and sensitivity to children, families, and the developmental process make this book different: a truly unique and original contribution. (Thomas F. Anders, MD, Distinguished Professor (Emeritus), University of California, Davis Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and M.I.N.D. Institute)

I enthusiastically recommend it as an outstanding reference for anyone who has struggled to understand the many issues underlying childhood psychopathology, including school counselors, teachers, and parents. (Carol A. Bernstein, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine and President-Elect, American Psychiatric Association)

I will be using this book as a text book for a psychology/human services class at Modesto Junior College. I believe another instructor will be using it also. The author has a resume that aligns itself with the requirements of the class. It is very comprehensive, covers what California (in particular) law requires, is easy to read and understand, and the price is right. Ask me at the end of the summer, and I'll tell you how students feel.

I am writing to say how helpful this book has been this semester in my psychology, child development, and creative arts therapies courses. The book's level of detail is perfectly appropriate for undergraduate study, as well as professionals and interested parents. The chapters are manageable and I find myself referring to it often.--NYU sophomore
