This book takes an intensely practical approach to initial diagnosis and management of behavioral health problems in children and youth, making it useful for any clinician who provides care to children in an outpatient setting. It has the same degree of empathy for the clinicians using it that we all hope to provide for the children and families we care for. Christopher Stille, M.D., MPH, Professor and Section Head, General Academic Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine/Children's Hospital Colorado Hilt and Nussbaum's DSM-5 Pocket Guide is an outstanding, user -friendly, clinically meaningful interpretation of disorders relevant to those of us evaluating and treating children and adolescents. It provides not only youth-specific information on the disorders; it provides very useful ways of soliciting the information as well as guidelines for treatment planning, and psychopharmacologic and psychosocial treatments. Think of the volume as cutting the huge plate of child and adolescent diagnosis, psychopathology and treatment into bite-sized and easy to swallow pieces! Clinicians caring for the mental health of children shouldn't be without it! Gabrielle A. Carlson, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Putnam Hall-South Campus
