A practical handbook to everything a practitioner needs to know about dealing with children and young people who visit an emergency department with mental health problems.
Provides accessible knowledge on child and adolescent mental health problems and what to do about them.
Clinical examples and comprehensive, easy to follow guidance are given throughout.
Will help all practitioners working in A&E to provide a better service to patients by improving their understanding and skills related to young people s mental health.
Subjects covered include: confidentiality; understanding the family; developmental and legal contexts; ‘being’ therapeutic; carrying out balanced risk assessments; service organisation and resourcing.
All healthcare professionals working in emergency medicine.
Plus, junior doctors in both psychiatry and paediatrics (who are often the first out-of-hours port-of-call).
