Positive Mental Health, Fighting Stigma and Promoting Resiliency for Children and Adolescents
The book is published in association with International Association of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions (IACAPAP) and will be released to coincide with its 22nd World Congress to be held in Calgary, Canada in September 2016. The Monograph title Positive Mental Health, Fighting Stigma and Promoting Resiliency for Children and Adolescents reflects the theme of the congress. The authors, selected from around the world, are experts in their field. They address conceptual issues including positive mental health, and new classification systems in child psychiatry; risk and resiliency for disorders drawing on biological perspectives from genetics and also brain abnormalities; psychosocial influences including adjustment of left behind children following parental migration, and promoting resilience in indigenous youth. Service and treatment chapters address the promotion of mental health literacy and reducing stigma, youth mental health services, promoting parenting, resilience in autism spectrum disorder, treatment of anorexia nervosa, psychopharmacology of depression, and helping very disturbed children in secure settings.
The first 1000 congress registrants will receive a free copy of the Monograph.
