In this double issue, we tackle a range of questions. First, does TMS help kids and teens with depression? Is it safe? Since many clinics are advertising TMS, we thought it was worth a close look. This leads us to a broader question: How should we develop and then try to answer the questions that come up in daily clinical practice? Our interview with Dr. Courtney helps us understand this process, and we’ve included a table on different kinds of evidence to help you vet the research you find. Then, in a newer and more sophisticated approach to analyzing studies on the treatment of depression in children and teens, our interview with Dr. Ignaszewski reveals eye-opening and reassuring insights.
Ever interested in the headlines we are all seeing, we look at two notable new releases in the field related to ADHD: Adhansia and eTNS. Are they useful? Should we be considering them? And finally, this issue looks at research on practice patterns in treating anxiety in kids by different kinds of clinicians over time, as well as a study on the utility of melatonin for supporting sleep in children with autism. It is a fully packed and practical double issue. As always, please let us know what you think!
