Dulcan s Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry supplants the previous textbook edited by Jerry Wiener and Mina Dulcan not with a new edition, but rather a new book. It offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive text in child and adolescent psychiatry as presented by more than 110 contributors, with 56 of the 65 chapters featuring new lead authors. Both the organization of the original text and the structure of the chapters have been overhauled to highlight what we now know about evidence-based practices in assessment and treatment, while preserving clinical wisdom.

Chapters on evaluation are developmentally focused, with a separate chapter for each age range. Eighteen chapters focus on specific disorders, while special topics include new chapters on bereavement and traumatic grief; ethnic, cultural, and religious issues; aggression and violence; children of ill parents; legal/ethical issues; and telepsychiatry. The text s wide-ranging emphasis on treatment expanded from seven to eighteen chapters includes psychopharmacology, brain-based innovative treatments, and a range of psychosocial approaches that focus on individual, family, therapeutic milieu, and systemic models of care. A new section on consultation provides guidance on interactions with schools, primary care practitioners, and the juvenile justice system.

Both scholarly and practical, Dulcan s Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a core resource for child and adolescent psychiatry training and will also serve as a reference for practitioners in psychiatry, pediatrics, neurology, psychology, nursing, and social work.
