Child Psychiatry

The Committee on Child Psychiatry discusses issues pertaining to the practice of child and adolescent psychiatry.  Previous committee publications include a proposed classification of psychopathology in children, a monograph of the process of child therapy, a manuscript on the ages of rights and responsibilities of children and adolescents, and “In the Long Run . . . Longitudinal Studies of Psychopathology in Children” was published in 1999.  The committee is discussing the issues of universal access to mental health in children and adolescents, with a view to perhaps producing a controversial article on the subject.
