Reviews


"The addition of the Wiley Desktop edition is an excellent way of making the handbook more portable and accessible. The functionality works on a variety of computers, tablets and phones and this makes this handbook all the more appealing to the modern clinician."  (Child & Adolescent Mental Health, 1 August 2013)

"This is a very good resource for professionals working in child and adolescent psychiatry. It provides a very thorough and well-organized guide for the assessment of patients with a wide range of complaints . . . The
book offers a unique method to reach an accurate diagnosis, amenable to interventions from a biopsychosocial perspective."  (Doody's, 1 February 2013) 

"Overall, this is a fantastic resource for anyone that assesses behaviour in children and adolescents. It is comprehensive and covers an amazing variety of topics in an easy to understand, concise way. This is a handbook that covers the depth and breadth of information that is normally reserved for textbooks and encyclopaedias. A clearly well researched and thought through book that would be valuable on the bookshelf or computer of any health professionals that work with children (the review copy has already been borrowed by colleagues and purchased as a leaving present). In particular the handbook would be relevant for child and adolescent psychiatrists, clinical and educational psychologists, paediatricians and CAMHS professionals both working long-term within the field or whilst still in training. The addition of the Wiley Desktop edition is an excellent way of making the handbook more portable and accessible in any setting. The functionality works on a variety of computers, tablets and phones and this makes this handbook all the more appealing to the modern clinician."(Dr Mark Lovell, Consultant Child and Adolescent Learning Disability Psychiatrist, South Tees LDCAMHS, Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust)

"A comprehensive and wide ranging book, exploring children's behaviours from the routine to the quirky, set within a sound developmental framework. The layout with excellent cross-referencing and explanations is accessible and will be of interest to many clinicians working with children, young people and their families." (Caryn Onions, Psychotherapist, Oxford, UK)

"This is an incredibly useful book. It has a comprehensive list of presentations that frequently leave clinicians wondering what is going on. Beneath each entry lies a treasure trove of sophisticated, up to date evidence about conditions, blended with astute clinical wisdom." (Professor Stephen Scott, Professor of Child Health and Behaviour, Institute of Psychiatry, London)
