Clear and accessible, mixing wisdom, empathy, and common sense, Dr. Shatkin's Child & Adolescent Mental Health is an essential text for practitioners working with young people growing up in today's complex world, including valuable information on the many ways that pandemic experiences have affected children and families.--Perri Klass, MD, professor of journalism and pediatrics, New York University, and author of The Best Medicine: How Science and Public Health Gave Children a Future
As a long-time teacher of medical students, psychology and psychiatry trainees, I have always placed Dr. Shatkin's book at the top of my list as a resource. He writes like he speaks: clear, succinct, relevant and evidence-based. My pediatric colleagues have also commented on what a wonderful talent Dr. Shatkin has for taking complex material and distilling it into content that is readable and relevant. Kudos to Dr. Shatkin for leading the way in child psychiatry education!--Lisa Namerow, MD, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Institute of Living/Hartford Hospital
