About this book


This book contains practical, clinical information for responding to the increasing unmet mental health needs of pediatric populations.  Edited by mental health experts with hands-on experience working in primary care, this book describes the most common pediatric psychiatric concerns that are most appropriately treated by PCPs and integrated care teams and it is written specifically for such providers.  It also provides clinical pearls for diagnosis, behavioral interventions, and pharmacologic interventions in order to inform early identification and treatment, which can change the trajectory of mental illness in youth. With broad applicability, the tools in this text can be used in urban, suburban, rural, resource-rich and resource-poor communities alike as well as in clinics that have varying degrees of mental health care integration. 


Pediatric Mental Health for Primary Care Providers: A Clinician's Guide is the ultimate resource for primary care clinicians and all members of integrated care teams working with children, including onsultant psychiatrists and psychologists, pediatricians, family physicians, social workers, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, nurses, and care coordinators.
