About ABCs of Child Psychiatry

This blog is devoted to bringing new, accurate, and readable information about child mental health issues.  While many posts will be related to my book Child Temperament:  New Thinking About the Boundary Between Traits and Illness, a variety of other topics will be explored including new research findings, public policy issues and practical clinical recommendations.  I consider myself to be an extreme moderate on most issues and try to avoid the flashy but usually false allure of more polarized viewpoints.  The human brain, after all, is pretty complicated.
