UBM Medica's Psychiatric Times Reports Strong Parent-Clinician Relationships Key to Successful Treatment in Children

NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- This October, UBM Medica's Psychiatric Times ( features special coverage that focuses on the psychiatric treatment of children and adolescents, particularly the importance of a strong family-psychiatrist bond.


Mental disorders are relatively common among children in the United States.  According to the National Institute of Health, over 20 percent of children have or have had a seriously debilitating mental disorder. 

Topic highlights include: 

  • "Custody Disputes," which discusses the role of the child psychiatrist in custody battles. The wrangling is anxiety-provoking for the clinician as well as the children.
  • "Familial Influences on Adolescent Substance Use" features data on the genetic and behavioral legacy of substance abuse.
  • "The Psychiatrist's Role on the Pediatric Palliative Care Team" provides current data and case vignettes to illustrate three common — yet challenging — areas where psychiatrists must keep in mind the impending death of the child and the quality of life of the parents.
  • "Psychiatric Issues in Children and Adolescents with Diabetes" emphasizes the importance of working together with family for improved treatment adherence in children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus. The authors suggest ways child psychiatrists can communicate with parents in order to optimize outcomes and assist their children in developmentally appropriate ways.

To improve adherence to treatment and strengthen outcomes, it is imperative for parents and their child's clinicians to develop a strong relationship. "Child and adolescent psychiatrists play an integral role in successful outcomes for their young patients," says Laura Prager, MD, Director of the Child Psychiatry Emergency Service at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and regular Psychiatric Times contributor. "Without such an alliance with caregivers, the treatment will likely fail and the child will suffer."

Providing unbiased, objective coverage, Psychiatric Times reports on the latest clinical developments in the field of psychiatry, including the areas of child & adolescent psychiatry
