"Practical, thorough, and easy to use--a must for all prescribers!"
--Fred R. Volkmar, MD
Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine
"From one of the most trusted names in psychopharmacology comes this user friendly, practical, and extremely useful guide to the treatment of child and adolescent mental illness. Highly recommended for both trainees and experienced practitioners alike. I myself will be referring back to this book for years to come."
--Jess P. Shatkin, MD, MPH
Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Pediatrics, NYU School of Medicine
"This is a very helpful and user-friendly guidebook. The information fits on one page with bullets rather than unnecessary verbiage. FDA indications are noted as well as off label uses, evidence/research is cited (including negative studies). Dose guidelines and side effects are easy to spot. Medications included go beyond what the usual psychopharmacology book include. Altogether, this book packs a real punch!"
--Gabrielle A. Carlson, MD
Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, Stony Brook University School of Medicine
