Child and Adolescent Psychiatry has been widely acclaimed since the publication of its first edition in 1997(originally titledChild Psychiatry). Each chapter has been designed to present the key facts, concepts and emerging facets of the area, drawing on clinical experience as well as the latest research findings. These guiding principles are followed in the third edition, which has been updated to reflect the varied advances in research and clinical practice that inform the subject.

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is structured into four main parts: first, an introductory section on assessment, classification and epidemiology; second, a section covering each of the main specific disorders and presentations; third, a section on the major risk factors predisposing to child psychiatric disorders; and fourth, a section on the main methods of treatment, covering also prevention, service organization and interpersonal and family therapies as well as fostering and adoption.
