Book description

This brand-new fourth volume in Stahl's Case Studies series presents a selection of clinical case studies in child and adolescent psychopharmacology, taken from Dr. Strawn's clinics and consultations. These cases illustrate common questions that are routinely asked by Dr. Strawn's peers in consultations and which represent dilemmas in the day-to-day practice of pediatric psychopharmacology. Followings a consistent, user-friendly layout, each case features icons, tips and questions about diagnosis and management as it progresses over time, a pre-case self-assessment question, followed by the correct answers at the end of the case. Formatted in alignment with the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology's maintenance of psychiatry speciality certification, cases address multifaceted issues in a relevant and understandable way. Covering a wide-ranging and representative selection of clinical scenarios, each case is followed through the complete clinical encounter, from start to resolution, acknowledging all the complications, issues, decisions, twists and turns along the way.


‘This collection of case studies is the most comprehensive and clinically relevant that I have ever read. As a practicing Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, I have come face to face with many of the same clinical presentations and found Dr Strawn’s review of the management thoughtful and integrative. It provides a unique framework for approaching these difficult interactions and offers a glimpse into how to combine science with the art of psychopharmacology when the evidence base is lacking. The emphasis on unique child and adolescent disorders, family dynamics and developmental pharmacology, outlines not just what the patient may need but also why. This is a must have for any Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist’s library. I will certainly use it when teaching my residents and fellows and in my own practice as well.’

‘Drs. Strawn and Stahl have really done it! The case-based teaching format and dozens of easy-to-read graphs and illustrations, walks clinicians of all levels through the complex world of pediatric psychopharmacology. Using easy-to-follow color-coded backgrounds and icons, the cases illustrate the evolution of each patient's treatment, the interplay of science and clinical wisdom, and the common pitfalls in the practice of pediatric psychopharmacology. In this era of rapidly advancing knowledge, this book provides a foundation rooted in the latest clinical pharmacology literature; it is a must-read for anyone practicing pediatric psychopharmacology.’

‘This book walks with you hand-in-hand as it describes common clinical challenges encountered while psychiatrically treating a child or adolescent. This is a must-have for novice and experienced clinicians alike, to provide clear guidance on ways to address a wide range of clinical scenarios affecting youth. In today’s complex and burdened healthcare environment, this essential psychopharmacology for child and adolescent psychiatry gives the busiest clinicians readily available tools to navigate complex scenarios with clear, sequential, and logical guidance. The clinical pearls are written in pragmatically and with adult learning principles in mind. Thank you, Drs Stahl and Strawn, for capitulating the wisdom of our field in such an accessible and engaging way.’
