Inhaltsangabe: Paediatric Psychopharmacology: Principles in Practice is an authoritative and comprehensive text on the use of medication in the treatment of children and adolescents with serious neuropsychiatric disorders. This benchmark volume consists of 56 chapters written by internationally recognized leaders, and is divided into four interrelated sections. The first, Biological Bases of Pediatric Psychopharmacology, reviews key principles of neurobiology and the major psychiatric illnesses of childhood from a perspective rooted in developmental psychopathology. The second, Somatic Interventions, presents the major classes of psychiatric drugs, as well as complementary and alternative somatic interventions, such as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), and naturopathic approaches. The third and longest section, Assessment and Treatment, starts with clinical assessment, diagnostic evaluation, and comprehensive treatment planning, and goes on to cover the evidence-based analysis of drug treatments for the major disorders. Special populations (such as children with comorbid mental retardation, substance abuse or medical illness) are specifically discussed, and the coordination of their treatment with non-somatic therapies is explicitly addressed. The final section, Epidemiologic, Research and Methodological Considerations, deals with broad population-relevant topics such as regulation and policy, pharmacoepidemiology, and the critical importance of sound ethical principles for clinical investigation. The book concludes with an appendix on generic and commercial drug name equivalences, preparations and available dosages. This timely text is intended for child and adolescent psychiatrists, general and developmental paediatricians, family practitioners, general psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals who work with children and adolescents.
A comprehensive and well-written book on psychopharmacology in children and adolescents that has the potential to be of use to all levels of training and experience. . . Like its older sibling, the Comprehensive Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, this book is off to a good start.

In sum, Pediatric Psychopharmacology is comprehensive, organized, well written and a pioneer in the field of child mental health care. The editors have gathered a large and heterogeneous body of knowledge in an accessible and comprehensive form. It should be an essential reference book wherever psychotropic medication are prescribed for the pediatric age group. It is an important and blessed beginning for the developing field of pediatric psycho-pharmacology. ( Israel Journal of Psychiatry, Vol 41, No 1)
. . . should be highly useful to pediatricians as well as child psychiatrists . . . well written and accessible to the reader . . . This is the definitive and authoritative textbook on pediatric psychopharmacology. ( Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine)
