Starting at the Beginning: Laying the Foundation for Lifelong Mental Health (2020)

Edited by Matthew Hodes, Susan Shur-Fen Gau, and Petrus J. de Vries. (Academic Press)

Starting at the Beginning: Laying the Foundation for Lifelong Mental (2020)

“Starting at the Beginning: Laying the Foundation for Lifelong Mental Health” is published to coincide  with a series of web-based events that replace the 24th International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions (IACAPAP) Congress in Singapore.

This book examines epidemiological and cultural perspectives in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH), risk, prevention, and intervention opportunities in developmental neuropsychiatry, new perspectives on problems and disorders, and Asian Perspectives in CAMH policy and services. It addresses the ways in which interventions and mental health services can be developed and shaped to address the individual differences amongst children in different contexts.

Specific chapters address national epidemiological surveys of child and adolescent mental health including the Taiwanese survey (Gau and Chen, chapter 1), and cultural psychiatry as the basic science addressing mental health and disparities (Guerrero and Andrade, chapter 2). Chapters on developmental neuropsychiatry address consequences of chemical exposure amongst children in South Korea (Jang et al, chapter 3), early life determinants of health and breaking the cycle of disadvantage (Eapen et al, chapter 4), and implementation of early interventions for autism spectrum disorders in resource limited settings, exemplified by South Africa ( Schlebush et al, chapter 5).  The third section on problems and disorders   provide a developmental model of hikikomoro (Kato, chapter 6), a chapter on gaming disorder (King and Delfabbro, chapter 7), and chapters on common challenges and pitfalls in treating paediatric OCD ( Krebs et al , chapter 8), and developmental  perspectives and treatment implications for  ADHD ( Coghill and Seth, chapter 9). The final section addresses child-centric mental health policies (Fung and Poremski, chapter 10), policy and practice of CAMH in China ( Zheng, chapter 11), and  CAMH needs, services and gap in East and South East Asia and Pacific (Hirota, et al, chapter 12).

The chapters are written by internationally recognised experts, in an accessible style, and illustrated with many figures and tables.

Understanding Uniqueness and Diversity in Child and Adolescent Mental Health

Editors: Matthew Hodes, Susan S-F Gau, Petrus J de Vries. Elsevier, Academic Press. 2018

Understanding Uniqueness and Diversity in Child and Adolescent Mental Health

The 2018 Monograph has been prepared for the 23rd IACAPAP World Congress held in Prague, Czech Republic, in July, 2018. The theme of the congress, “Understanding Diversity and Uniqueness,” has influenced the title of this Monograph.

Understanding Uniqueness and Diversity in Child and Adolescent Mental Health examines the determinants of individual differences in children and young people, and the origins of maladjustment and psychiatric disorders. It addresses the ways in which interventions and mental health services can be developed and shaped to address the individual differences amongst children. Additional topics include the influence of economic adversities and gender differences on child development and the life course, as well as the range of risk and protective factors associated with the onset and persistence of problems.

Chapters dive deeper into antisocial behaviour (Acquaviva et al), bipolar disorder (Goetz et al), tics and Tourette’s (Eapen et al), anxiety disorders (Koydemir & Essau), medically unexplained symptoms (Rask et al), developmental aspects of infancy and adversities (Hunt & Tomlinson, Berg et al) , gender dysphoria (Harper et al) and the needs of refugee children in Europe (Fegert et al). One section addresses the benefit of targeting interventions, as illustrated by a chapter on pharmacogenomics (Malik et al), and another on the ways in which services can be adapted for specific environments by using telemedicine (Malhotra & Shah). The final section addresses European themes on the development and practice of child and adolescent mental health in Central Europe (Remschmidt et al) and training across the continent (Jacobs et al).

Key Features

  • Emphasizes social and environmental influences
  • Focuses on early developmental and infancy processes
  • Covers a range of illustrative psychiatric disorders and problems
  • Addresses the training of child and adolescent psychiatrists across Europe
  • Works toward the goal of producing a mental health workforce with internationally recognized competencies

“Traditionally the monographs had followed the themes of the numerous IACAPAP congresses, and their contents provided summaries of disorders and treatments in the child and adolescent mental health field. With the growth of the IACAPAP website and textbook, the monograph has been focused to address congress themes, regional or social issues, new topics, and selective reviews in child and adolescent mental health treatments and other innovations. This monograph addresses the themes of the 2016 Calgary Congress entitled “Fighting Stigma, Promoting Resiliency and Positive Mental Health,” as well as including evidence-based reviews of selective treatment areas. A further change for the monograph, in keeping with IACAPAP’s move to more Internet-based open access to materials, is that for the first time it will become available online, one year after the congress”—M. Hodes & S. Shur-Fen Gau

From Research to Practice in Child and Adolescent Mental Health

Edited by Jean-Philippe Raynaud; Matthew Hodes and Susan Shur-Fen Gau
Published May 2014

From Research to Practice in Child and Adolescent Mental Health

From Research to Practice in Child and Adolescent Mental Health has been shaped to reflect the mental health needs of children and adolescents in low and middle income countries of the world. It also includes chapters on topics based on research and practice in high income countries which may have lessons and implications universally.

The world population balance is shifting. Rich, developed countries’ inhabitants are becoming older while people in low and middle income countries are becoming younger, so much so that a large proportion of the world’s youth now lives in these countries. Another shift is also taking place in youth-rich countries: their leaders are increasingly concerned about improving the mental health of their people and realize the need to train more and better professionals to deal with these problems. This book is a key source of information for policy and practice that would be useful for professionals in training and leaders when addressing these issues.” – Joseph M. Rey, PhD, University of Sydney

Brain, Mind and Developmental Psychopathology in Childhood

Edited by Elena Garralda and Jean-Philippe Raynaud

Brain, Mind and Developmental Psychopathology in Childhood

The 2012 Paris Congress Book has empirical chapters on biological and psychological influences on developmental psychopathology in childhood, clinical updates with a focus on the biological underpinnings of individual child neuropsychiatric disorders, and a chapter on how to integrate biological and psychological therapies in child mental health as well as on advocacy for child mental health.

Brain, Mind, and Developmental Psychopathology in Childhood, a number of the most distinguished international researchers in their areas share current ideas about and future perspectives on how to understand the biological and psychosocial background for psychopathologic conditions in developing children. It underscores the need for both a holistic and multidisciplinary approach. The book considers the future of the field, including topics such as a hope for a more detailed knowledge of how the brain works, similarities and differences between the female and the male brain, and how the genes interact with the environment when the brain is shaped during fetal life and during the long period of brain maturation in the first 25 years of life. An excellent book-highly recommended.” – Per-Anders Rydelius, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden

Culture and Conflict in Child and Adolescent Mental Health

Edited by M. Elena Garralda and Jean-Philippe Raynaud

Culture and Conflict in Child and Adolescent Mental Health

“This volume of papers from the IACAPAP conference give the reader a flavour of critical, provocative and challenging work going on globally in the field of child and adolescent mental health. It is a fascinating account of the research, the setting up of programs, and the attempts to train workers in cultural areas far outside our usual zones of comfort.” — Rudy Oldeschulte, Metaphysical Online Reviews, Aug 25, 2009

“The entire volume is a remarkable engaging, readable, and comprehensive compilation of selected topics of the recent advances in understanding risk and resilience factors in the field of child mental health. It is well written and well edited….a scholarly yet readable, interesting, and accessible summary of our current science and clinical expertise in the field of risk and resilience.” — February 2008, The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
