This important book synthesizes the most recent research findings pertaining to drug treatments of various psychiatric disorders in children, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar mania, aggression in pervasive developmental disorder, Tourette's syndrome, and substance abuse. The chapters examine the issues of tolerability and efficacy, and inappropriate over-use, within a social and developmental context. For each disorder, pharmacotherapy is discussed in the wider context of neurobiology, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment.
