Item description for A Primer of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry by Daniel Fung...
This unique volume chronicles the combined experiences of the multidisciplinary team on the clinical practice of child and adolescent psychiatry. A culmination of the authors' past 37 years of training medical students and other allied health trainees, this text is designed with the needs of the busy clinician in mind. Its broad coverage of the subject, the use of relevant clinical histories and findings to illustrate key points, as well as discussions on common treatment side effects make it a very helpful and practical book. Medical students in their third through final years; trainees in psychiatry, psychology, and social work; psychologists; teacher counselors; medical social workers; pediatricians interested in child mental health; and family physicians will find this book particularly useful and stimulating.
