This book highlights the complexity and intrigue inherent in pediatric neuropsychiatry, a subject uncommonly covered in rich detail in the medical literature. The text informs clinicians and scholars about theoretical background and practical approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with neuropsychiatric illness. The book is organized to allow readers to conveniently explore a broad range of complex neuropsychiatric conditions in a format that is concise, and user-friendly. Each chapter starts with a case, followed by pertinent details of the process of neuropsychiatric evaluation, treatment, and outcomes. The aim of each section is to provide lessons about neurodevelopment and neuroanatomy while simultaneously providing insight into brain and behavior relationships. The discourse combines wisdom from both neurology and psychiatry, sometimes from a starting point of common disorders such as ADHD and sometimes from more arcane conditions such as catatonia. Written by world-renown experts in the field, each chapter also includes specific clinical pearls and lessons in neuropsychiatry offered by the individual cases. In selected chapters, the cases come to life with powerful personal reflections from the patients and family members themselves. Pediatric Neuropsychiatry is a valuable tool for study and quick reference and an enjoyable read for psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, neuropsychologists, pediatricians, medical students, social workers, and all other professionals working with children suffering from neuropsychiatric conditions
