The State of the Art and Science in Child Psychiatry

  • E. James Anthony

Abstract

A review of the changes in child psychiatry over the past two decades would suggest that although some minor shifts in attitude and orientation have occurred, putting an emphasis on different issues, the practice has remained relatively unaffected, apart from the trial of different therapeutic maneuvers. The minimal research that has emerged in this period has had little impact on the establishment of a scientifically based body of knowledge.
