Abstract

Reviews the book, Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychopharmacology Made Simple by John Preston, John H. O'Neal, and Mary C. Talaga (see record 2006-02167-000). The fast pace of development, research, and advertisement to the market in the field of child and adolescent psychopharmacology necessitates that mental health practitioners, including those who do not actually prescribe medications, be knowledgeable of prescription practices, recommendations, and possible side effects. This book provides basic, practical information on the use of psychotropic medications in children and adolescents. The easy-to-use format and straightforward delivery of content are especially useful for busy mental health practitioners, who may find themselves needing information fast. Nonprescribing practitioners will find this resource particularly helpful. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
