A compact, “how-to” manual on effective, evidence-based treatments for enuresis and encopresis. The aim of this book is to provide readers with a practical overview of the definitions, characteristics, theories and models, diagnostic and treatment recommendations, and relevant aspects and methods of evidence-based psychosocial treatments for encopresis and enuresis, primarily in children. Although treatments and research for elimination disorders are reviewed in general, particular attention is directed at constipation and encopresis, toileting refusal, and diurnal and nocturnal enuresis due to the high incidence of these conditions in children. Case vignettes, websites, and suggestions for further reading are provided for the interested reader.

Elimination disorders (such as daytime wetting or soiling) are common in childhood. This manual presents a new and effective training program for children and adolescents with nocturnal enuresis, daytime urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, or a combination of these forms, who do not respond to standard measures. After discussing the different types of incontinence and comorbid psychological disorders, the expert team of authors (a psychotherapist, a pediatric nurse, a psychologist, and a psychiatrist) describes a 7?9 session program of bladder and bowel training, primarily for use in groups but which can also be used with individuals. The training encompasses psychoeducation, operant reinforcement, emotion regulation, and relaxation techniques – all presented in a “child-friendly”, playful manner. The manual itself is accompanied by a wealth of colorful, attractive, printable worksheets and other educational materials suitable for youngsters, which cover topics such as healthy drinking and eating habits, stress and emotion regulation, body perception, toilet training, and relaxation techniques. This manual is a superb resource for pediatricians, specialists in child and adolescent psychiatry, psychologists, nurses, urotherapists, and all other professionals looking for well-founded, hands-on guidance on treating children and adolescents with incontinence.

Elimination disorders, specifically enuresis and encopresis, affect millions of children worldwide. Management of this problem is often a source of frustration for parents, especially as their children reach school age and beyond. For clinicians, having a good understanding of both the physical and behavioral factors that contribute to these problems is essential if they are to be successfully treated. This volume will walk clinicians through the physical, behavioral, and emotional factors that contribute to the devel­opment of these disorders and, most importantly, provide evidence-based interventions that will result in the effective treatment and elimination of these common clinical problems. Thus, this book will serve as a resource for clinicians to not only explain the etiology of enuresis and encopresis, but more importantly to provide clinically proven interventions that have been demonstrated to treat these disorders successfully.

This handbook examines and illustrates the integration of conceptualization and treatment of child and adolescent psychopathology. Conceptual models and intervention strategies are illustrated, and chapters cover several specific disorders and problem areas. The inspiration for this book arose largely from the teaching experiences of the editors, who found that while many students, as well as experienced clinicians, have knowledge in several theoretical domains and familiarity with a variety of interventions, significant numbers had difficulty linking the two.

The new, third edition of the Clinical Manual of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology has been thoroughly revised, yet its mission remains the same: to keep clinicians up-to-date on the latest research so that they can provide state-of-the-art care to their young patients. To this end, the book describes and explores those elements that are specific to pediatric psychopharmacology; this defines and positions the volume at the nexus of child and adolescent psychiatry, pediatrics, and pharmacology. A stellar roster of contributors addresses new treatments for youths with disruptive behavior disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, pervasive developmental disorders, and psychotic illnesses and tackles some of the most important emerging issues in the field. For example, advances in understanding the long-term treatment effects of medications in pediatric populations are thoroughly reviewed, including not only maintenance studies that consider the durability of efficacy but also clinical trials of greater duration designed to specifically evaluate long-term safety. In addition, recent studies of combination therapies are examined, helping clinicians better understand how to treat the complicated patients that arrive every day at a prescribing clinician's office. Finally, because research designs now include a broader base of patient populations to make the data more applicable to everyday clinical practice, the book focuses on head-to-head studies with multiple active comparators. The book offers clinicians comprehensive, accessible information and boasts a multitude of helpful features: The book is organized by diagnosis instead of agent class. This makes it a true clinical desktop reference that allows clinicians to quickly and efficiently search treatment options and the evidence base on a case-by-case basis. DSM-5 criteria and information on comorbidities are also included. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Practice Parameters are integrated into the discussion, where applicable, in support of standard of care. The book has been updated to include the latest research at the time of publication. A new chapter has been added to address eating disorders, an area where psychopharmacological research that may apply to children and adolescents is now being pursued. Useful features to help the reader understand and retain the material include clinical summary points, easy to read tables, and current and carefully vetted references. The Clinical Manual of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology, Third Edition, is an indispensable guide to the substantive research that has been done in nearly every area of pediatric psychopharmacology, as well as the major improvements that have been made to the evidence-based practice of treating youths with psychiatric illness.

A complete guide to evidence based interventions for children and adolescents The past decade has witnessed the development of numerous interventions proved to be highly effective; several treatments are now considered to be "well established" or "probably efficacious" interventions for children.

Alfano and Beidel have assembled a team of experts to write the disorder chapters. Each chapter begins with an overview of the disorder then delves into evidence-based approaches to treatment, the impact of parental involvement, case-by-case modifications, progress measurement, and clinical examples. In overview chapters the editors cover: The role of development in treatment planning and implementation Dissemination of EBIs into school and community settings The use of controversial therapies with children Emerging methods of service delivery and access improvement Comprehensive Evidence Based Interventions for Children and Adolescents provides clinicians, researchers, and students alike with the theoretical, conceptual, and practical skills to provide children and adolescents with the best care possible.

Making a psychiatric diagnosis in children can be challenging: some clinicians say the incidence of some childhood disorders, such as bipolar disorder and ADHD, is over-diagnosed while others say they are undiagnosed, undertreated, and are a large burden on society. The drug treatment of child psychiatric disorders can also be controversial in children and adolescents. Clinical Child Psychiatry fills the need for an objective, clinically relevant source to dispel this confusion.

Mastery of bowel and bladder control is a major developmental milestone for children. This mastery represents a significant step towards the establishment of individuation. It signifies the ability to take care of oneself and attend school. Until relatively recently, both enuresis and encopresis were conditions notoriously resistant to therapeutic intervention. Now, however, highly effective intervention techniques have been identified for these disorders and are becoming more widely used. But there is still a need for improved dissemination of knowledge about effective treatments, and for a greater number of qualified professionals to provide treatment for these disorders. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the causes, signs and effective treatments for childhood encopresis and enuresis.

Since publication of the first edition, Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry has become the recognized standard in child and adolescent psychiatry textbooks. In this thoroughly revised second edition, the editor and chapter authors, leaders in the field of child and adolescent mental health, have again provided a complete, state-of-the-art textbook with notable updates and improvements that enhance accessibility and learning. The new edition is more concise and compact, while remaining comprehensive in scope. The number of chapters has been reduced to sharpen the book's focus on topics most relevant to clinical work. The textbook reflects the new DSM-5 classifications that all clinicians and trainees must know to function in today's health care environment. Many other features contribute to the textbook's user-friendly design and broad appeal: Chapters on the disorders (neurodevelopmental, psychiatric, and those affecting somatic function) have a consistent structure of definition and clinical description, diagnosis, epidemiology, comorbidity, etiology and risk factors, prevention, course and prognosis, evaluation, and treatments, making it easy for readers to locate information and facilitating learning. The textbook is useful as both a core textbook for child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship training and a reference for a wide variety of health care professionals, including pediatricians, family physicians, general psychiatrists, child neurologists, psychologists, advanced practice nurses, and psychiatric social workers. The full range of psychosocial treatments is included, focusing on individuals, families, therapeutic milieus, and systemic models of care. The increasing emphasis on taking mental health care beyond the clinician's office is reflected in chapters on consultations related to schools and to primary care. A section on specialized topics includes chapters on a range of critically important issues, including evidence-based practice, cultural and religious issues, legal and ethical issues, and telehealth. Each chapter in the book ends with "Summary Points," take-away messages that emphasize the most important concepts and promote consolidation of knowledge. The section "Additional Resources" includes "Selected Books for Professionals" and "Web Sites for Professionals, Patients, and Families," which provide avenues for further study and connections with others treating or living with mental health issues. Reflecting both the art and the science of this fascinating field, Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Second Edition, provides authoritative, practical guidance and is a resource that mental health practitioners at all levels of experience should have on their desks and handheld devices.

In Childhood Disorders, Philip C. Kendall provides an up-to-date summary of the current information about the psychological disorders of childhood - their causes, nature and course - together with discussion and evaluation of the major models that guide psychological thinking about the disorders. Drawing on the research literature and case studies from his own clinical work, Kendall describes each of the major childhood disorders. He goes on to give a detailed consideration of the criteria used to make the diagnoses, a presentation of the latest research findings on the nature of the disorder, and an overview of the methods used and evaluations conducted for the treatment of the disorders. Throughout, the range of normal behavioural variations is set as the backdrop against which to make judgements about psychological disorders, and the role of the family in the onset and course of psychological difficulties is explored. Within the coverage of the treatments of childhood disorders, emphasis is placed upon those treatments that have been empirically evaluated and found to be effective in producing beneficial change for the children. In the end, a series of provocative questions are raised and the reader is asked to recognise and think about the personal and social implications of the decisions that we make regarding how we deal with the disorders of childhood. Childhood Disorders will provide an accessible, up-to-date introduction to the field for both students and professionals alike.

Abnormal and clinical psychology courses are offered in psychology programs at universities worldwide, but the most recent major encyclopedia on the topic was published many years ago.

What Works with Children and Adolescents? fulfils the need for a concise, empirically-based study of the types of psychological treatments that may be effective for common psychological problems in childhood and adolescence. Providing a solid foundation for evidence-based practice in the treatment of children and adolescents, the book offers evidence from over 150 rigorously conducted research trials. Examining problems which are of central concern to practising clinicians - including child abuse, enuresis and encopresis, ADHD, childhood conduct problems, adolescent violence, drug abuse, anxiety and depression, anorexia and bulimia nervosa, paediatric pain, and post-divorce adjustment problems - it also highlights priority areas for future research on the treatment of children and adolescents' psychological problems. What Works with Children and Adolescents? complements The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology (Carr, 2006), and will be valuable to professionals in training.
