Psychotic Disorders in Children and Adolescents



November 2000 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Psychotic disorders can be misunderstood or misdiagnosed by clinicians that deal with children, including clinical social workers, counsellors, child psychiatrists, and child psychologists. Many times it is difficult for a mental health professional to determine whether the problematic behaviours exhibited are the result of an altered normal developmental process or the result of a serious mental disorder. This book provides professionals and students with the specific information needed to better assess the exact nature of what is affecting the young patient.
