Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health: A Resource for Advanced Practice Psychiatric and Primary Care Practitioners in Nursing

Yearwood, E. L., Pearson, G. S., & Newland, J. A. (2021). Wiley. 10.1002/9781119487593
Research has shown that a range of adult psychiatric disorders and mental health problems originate at an early age, yet the psychiatric symptoms of an increasing number of children and adolescents are going unrecognized and untreated—there are simply not enough child psychiatric providers to meet this steadily rising demand. It is vital that advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) and primary care practitioners take active roles in assessing behavioral health presentations and work collaboratively with families and other healthcare professionals to ensure that all children and adolescents receive appropriate treatment. Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health helps APRNs address the mental health needs of this vulnerable population, providing practical guidance on assessment guidelines, intervention and treatment strategies, indications for consultation, collaboration, referral, and more. Now in its second edition, this comprehensive and timely resource has been fully updated to include DSM-5 criteria and the latest guidance on assessing, diagnosing, and treating the most common behavioral health issues facing young people. New and expanded chapters cover topics including eating disorders, bullying and victimization, LGBTQ identity issues, and conducting research with high-risk children and adolescents. Edited and written by a team of accomplished child psychiatric and primary care practitioners, this authoritative volume: Provides state-of-the-art knowledge about specific psychiatric and behavioral health issues in multiple care settings Reviews the clinical manifestation and etiology of behavioral disorders, risk and management issues, and implications for practice, research, and education Offers approaches for interviewing children and adolescents, and strategies for integrating physical and psychiatric screening Discusses special topics such as legal and ethical issues, cultural influences, the needs of immigrant children, and child and adolescent mental health policy Features a new companion website containing clinical case studies to apply concepts from the chapters Designed to specifically address the issues faced by APRNs, Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health is essential reading for nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists, particularly those working in family, pediatric, community health, psychiatric, and mental health settings.

Collaborative Treatment with Primary Care

Primary care providers (PCPs) play a significant role in reducing this global burden in responding to, identifying, and managing the mental health needs of children and adolescents. Services for behavioral health (BH) care needs can be provided by the PCP but might more appropriately be delivered by a psychiatric mental health (PMH) specialist, such as a PMH advanced practice registered nurse (APRN), psychologist, social worker, psychiatrist, or other person trained to manage the BH and mental health needs of children and adolescents. This chapter presents background information and discussion of issues in providing integrated BH and PC services through collaborative treatment models. The most common and researched collaborative and integrated practice models are presented. The team members of an interprofessional team are described. Barriers and facilitators to successful integration of BH and PC are reviewed.

Integration of Physical and Psychiatric Assessment

This chapter describes the elements that make up a comprehensive psychiatric-mental health assessment of children and adolescents. This assessment can be used in primary care settings to help identify children and adolescents in need of mental health services. Key areas include history taking, physical examination process, risk, protective factors, teaching needs of the child or adolescent and family, and ways to communicate the assessment findings to the patient and family and, if appropriate, the school so that they are able to pursue appropriate treatment as needed. The chapter provides advanced practice registered nurses and other primary care practitioners (PCPs) in primary care and mental health settings with a way to systematically approach the assessment of the behavioral and mental health of their patients. It aims to assist PCPs with the knowledge and confidence to proceed with their evaluation of the child's history, behavior, complaints, school performance, social skills, family functioning, and available resources for care.
