Publications launched at the Paris Congress 2012

In addition to the innovative electronic textbook on Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH), ‘The IACAPAP Textbook of Child and Adolescent Mental Health’, available free of charge and downloadable here, two other outstanding IACAPAP publications were launched at the Paris Congress.

In tune with the theme of the 20th IACAPAP Congress, the book for the Congress ‘Brain, Mind and Developmental Psychopathology in Childhood’ edited by Elena Garralda and Jean-Philippe Raynaud and the book ‘75 Years with IACAPAP, The History of IACAPAP’, by Kari Schleimer were launched.

Brain, Mind and Developmental Psychopathology in Childhood, Edited by Elena Garralda and Jean-Philippe Raynaud

“This fine book provides a wide-ranging and humane survey of the current issues in child and adolescent mental health, and is recommended to all professionals in the area.” – Eric Taylor, King’s College London

“In 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

The book is available through Rowman Littlefield Publishing.
