Is medication the right choice for treating your child’s emotional or behavioral problems? How can you be confident that he or she has been properly diagnosed?

From leading child psychiatrists Timothy Wilens and Paul Hammerness, this book has already empowered many tens of thousands of parents to make tough decisions and become active, informed managers of their children’s care. With clarity and compassion, it explains how medications work; their impact on kids’ emotions, personality, school performance, and health; the pros and cons of specific treatment options; and much more. In addition to parents, teachers and other school professionals will find this book an ideal reference.
