Brandon-Hill listed the second edition (1997) as "suggested for initial purchase." The third edition, of course, is updated throughout, but maintains the intent to be both scholarly and practical providing enough information without overwhelming users with detail. Ten sections comprise 56 contributions on assessment and diagnosis; various types of disorders developmental, schizophrenia and other psychoses, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior, anxiety, eating, and disorders affecting somatic function; special issues; and treatment. Before his illness, editor Wiener (deceased; formerly with George Washington University) shaped this edition but then invited help from Dulcan (affiliated with Children's Memorial Hospital, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern University), who will undertake primary responsibility for the fourth edition.

Both scholarly and practical, the third edition of this popular textbook continues its tradition of integrating clinical wisdom and scientific research to improve patient care and advocacy for children and families, commemorating Dr. Jerry Wiener's immense contributions to the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.
Comprehensive yet accessible to busy students, residents, and practitioners alike, this well-organized, clinically oriented reference is practical for everyday use.
Written by 88 distinguished experts, each of the 56 chapters in this densely informative work presents a summary of a core topic. Divided into 10 parts, this Third Edition has been revised and updated throughout to keep pace with accelerating progress in research on developmental psychopathology. Clearly organized to reflect DSM-IV-TR, this textbook includes not only many updated chapters (some with new junior faculty as coauthors), but also six new chapters on culture and ethnicity, economic issues, rating scales, patient interviews, genetic testing, and milieu treatments, and ten completely rewritten chapters with new principal authors on testing, posttraumatic stress disorder, bulimia nervosa, adjustment and reactive disorders, substance abuse disorders, physical abuse and sexual abuse, group psychotherapy, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, and mood disorders in adolescents.
The third edition of this contemporary core textbook continues to be an invaluable addition to the libraries of generalist and specialist alike, from medical students and psychiatry residents to practitioners and family law attorneys.
Special Note from the co-editor: Jerry Wiener, M.D., sole editor of the previous two editions of this remarkable textbook, was a giant in child psychiatry.

This third edition caps and commemorates his immense contributions to the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.About the Author:
