Child Psychiatric Treatment

Child Psychiatric Treatment

Author: Philip G. Ney, Deanna L. Mulvihill Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 17/09/2020

Whilst there was a large number of primary-care staff wanting to treat psychiatrically ill children, they lacked adequate training. There was, in the past, an insufficient number of prescribable, measurable, techniques to aid any training in this field of work. This resulted in confusion and apathy amongst staff, together with long periods of treatment which often weakened family relationships. Originally published in 1985, this book was designed to equip all professionals dealing with emotionally or behaviourally disturbed children and their families, with practical methods and techniques. It demonstrates how staff can work more effectively when each child and family being treated has a detailed treatment programme, each component of which can be readily understood and measured. The 61 techniques included in this handbook were developed over many years during the authors' experience in Canada, Hong Kong and New Zealand.

Pediatric Anesthesia Procedures

Pediatric Anesthesia Procedures

There is a decreased tolerance for error when pediatric patients undergo medical procedures. It is, therefore, important to accomplish procedures as quickly and accurately as possible. Pediatric Anesthesia Procedures is designed to provide rapid access to information in order to solve a clinical problem as it is occurring.

This will make it especially useful for practitioners doing procedures that they perform infrequently-or must perform for the first time during an emergent or urgent situation. The chapters within cover a wide variety of basic and advanced pediatric anesthesia procedures and provide generously illustrated step-by-step guidelines for performing them. Each is introduced with an accessible description, followed by a variety of high-quality graphic images-including detailed photographs, magnetic resonance images, computed tomography images, and ultrasound images-and detailed instructions.

The authors go on to examine the poverty-related attainment gap in Glasgow, which contains more than half of the 100 most deprived areas in Scotland. An approach to the study of childhood cancer focusing on the parents themselves is presented. Despite the previous work on this issue, there is great controversy regarding the conclusions drawn. Similarly, a study is presented which aims to describe mothers' experiences caring for children with chronic kidney disease in conservative kidney management. An attempt is made to understand the critical factors which play an important role in developing the skills and competencies in children pertaining to resilience, social and emotional domains. The authors describe research from around the world on cyberbullying to examine the nature, extent, causes, and consequences related to children and adolescents' involvement in these behaviors. The direct net effects of economic development, the level of globalization, internet use, and gender on adolescent fertility are assessed using the bio-ecological model. In addition, the social determinants of recent alcohol use and heavy episodic drinking among African Americans aged 18 to 25 years are assessed. Subsequently, the current understanding of the etiology, clinical features, evaluation, and natural history of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is described.
