Editor-in-Chief, The Carlat Child Psychiatry Report
In this issue we tackle a range of challenges, including differentiating ADHD from bipolar disorder, understanding suicide risk in college students, managing assertions about the safety of weed, and assessing and treating violent behavior in our patients. How do we think about the future of kids with ADHD? Dr. Mark Katz offers a hopeful approach. We also take a quick look at a newly released overnight ADHD medication—will it really work?
And brand-new this fall, check out our Child Medication Fact Book for Psychiatric Practice. Clear, concise fact sheets and tables give you just what you need during the moment-to-moment rush of daily practice, and the book is tabbed to make it faster to look up things than I ever could online. Plus, it features great appendices that cover blood pressure, growth, screening for abnormal movement, lab monitoring, pregnancy, informed consent, and more. As an informed consent nerd, I love using that appendix to drive process within a care-enhancing structure. The book is now available on the Carlat website.
