General Principles of Pediatric Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry
This textbook brings together practitioners from around the world to explore essential concepts in pediatric consultation-liaison psychiatry (also known as pediatric psychosomatic medicine) utilizing a problem-based approach. Shaw et al. (Chapter 1. Pediatric psychosomatic medicine. In: Shaw RJ, DeMaso DR (eds) Textbook of pediatric psychosomatic medicine. American Psychiatric Publishing, Washington, DC, p 3, 2010) define pediatric psychosomatic medicine as the “subspecialty of child and adolescent psychiatry that is dedicated to providing mental health services to youngsters with physical illness.” The United States’ Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) describes psychosomatic medicine as “the discipline encompassing the study and practice of psychiatric disorders in patients with medical, surgical, obstetrical, and neurological conditions, particularly for patients with complex and/or chronic conditions” (ACGME, https://www.acgme.org/Portals/0/PFAssets/ProgramRequirements/409_psychosomatic_med_2016_1-YR.pdf.
