Search for IACAPAP e-Textbook Editor

The IACAPAP e-Textbook on Child and Adolescent Mental Health is a globally curated textbook conceived and developed by a child psychiatrist, Professor Joseph M Rey. The book has an open structure; new chapters to deal with important clinical or service areas are added to the updated yearly editions resulting in a book that is a live, evolving object that has become increasingly comprehensive over time.

The current edition is the version 1.0 of the IACAPAP e-Textbook. We are now seeking an editorial team to lead the development of the version 2.0 of the e-Textbook.
