Beginning Child Psychiatry

      According to the preface, “This is a book for serious beginners (i.e., students and general practitioners) in child psychiatry.” The text relates to this target audience admirably. The material is divided into five sections: part 1, Introduction to Clinical Work With Children; part 2, Disorders of Childhood: Doing, Feeling, Thinking, and Being Victimized; part 3, Child as Family Member; part 4, Crisis Now; and part 5, Child Psychiatry: Similar but Different. At the end of each chapter is a collection of questions for study and review. These questions are most appropriate for medical students or residents early in their training and are intended to provoke creative thinking about various child psychiatric issues. Each chapter also includes a bibliography.
