Child and adolescent psychiatry is a complex clinical discipline whose practitioners work in close cooperation with their professional colleagues in clinical medicine, education, social welfare, sociology, family relations theory, and legal affairs. This volume, the first of its kind to be published in Japan, provides a broad-ranging view of recent progress in the rapidly developing field of child and adolescent psychiatry. Topics include infant psychiatry, developmental disorders, the interface between education and psychiatry (especially as it relates to the phenomenon of "school refusal") neurotic disorders, and adolescent psychoses, as well as parental power and child abuse, and psychiatric problems surrounding organ transplantation in children. The section on autism and education focuses on problems of autistic children reaching adolescence, a subject that has rarely been treated so directly. Also of clinical interest and importance is the discussion presented here of high-risk factors for adolescent psychosis. This volume, with contributions by leading professionals in the field, is a valuable source and reference for practitioners, researchers, and students of child and adolescent psychiatry and clinical psychology.
