by Dr. Bill J. Duke

Overview
This book does not debate whether medication should be used with a child. Many children receive medication and in those cases they monitoring and measurement of the effects is beneficial. A related downloadable software program from DCC Publishing (www.dccpub.com) provides computer tools needed to make the process easy and useful.
Description
Despite love, support and guidance there are many children with impairing developmental, neurological, emotional and/or behavioral states that threaten the child’s positive family development, participation in normative environments or otherwise threaten developmental progress. In many cases these conditions can be improved and their negative effects reduced with the thoughtful use of medications. This book provides instructions and directions how to more clearly define, monitor and measure changes that occur during any form of treatment. Pharmacological treatment of a child is best achieved through a collaborative effort between the prescribing clinician and a parent or guardian. These methods and associated software applications have been developed by DCC Publishing and the Child Psychopharmacology Institute (CPI).
