Child and Adolescent Psychiatry: Blackwell's Neurology and Psychiatry Access Series



Blackwell’s Neurology and Psychiatry Access Series has been designed to teach the art of diagnosis and treatment of neurologic and mental disease using a rational approach. In this way the trainee specialist can apply both deductive and inductive reasoning to arrive at a diagnosis and formulate a plan for treatment.The Access Series consists of four books:

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
Adult Psychiatry
Child & Adolescent Neurology
Adult Neurology

It is the goal of this text in the Blackwell Neurology/Psychiatry Access Series to convey not only essential knowledge but also the collected wisdom of its many highly regarded contributors. To achieve the goal of conveying not only knowledge but wisdom, each volume is divided into three sections:

· Tools for Diagnosis
· Diseases and Disorders
· Common Problems


Also included to facilitate a physician’s use of this book are:

· Nosologic Diagnosis tables
· “Pearls and Perils” boxes
· “Consider Consultation When…”
· Selected annotated bibliographies
· A complete bibliography
· Key Clinical Questions and What They Unlock




The Nosologic Diagnosis tables are based on a discriminator model to promote clearer understanding and are superior to a criterion-based model and others that lack similar specificity. This strong emphasis on differential diagnosis and on providing a structure for the understanding of the disease process means that they are true “how to do it” books.
