Child and adolescent psychiatry in Portugal
Child and adolescent psychiatry in Portugal includes diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and rehabilitation of psychiatric and psychosomatic disorders, psychological, and social development disturbances during childhood and adolescence. But it also deals with problems which fall into the scope of other specialities: psy-chopathology of the pregnant woman, mother-child psychiatry, psychopathology of parent-child relationship, family psychopathology. This action must be developed by an interdisciplinary team including child psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, nursery school teachers, and other therapists in order to obtain a better rationalization and profitability of efforts.
