Pediatric irritability, defined as increased proneness to anger relative to peers, is among the most common reasons for mental health referrals. The past 15 years have witnessed a dramatic rise in the empirical study of pediatric irritability with the goal of developing more effective methods of assessing and treating these impaired youth.

Irritability in Pediatric Psychopathology (ePub/PDF) offers a comprehensive overview of this work, approaching the topic from multiple perspectives and disciplines including clinical psychology, child psychiatry, developmental psychology, and neuroscience. The ebook starts by describing pediatric irritability, evaluating its prevalence, existing evaluation approaches, and novel behavioral and psychophysiological indicators in five parts written by international experts.

The literature on the development of pediatric irritability from preschool to adolescence and young adulthood is reviewed in the second section. The third section reviews the current evidence for genetic and neurobiological causes that contribute to paediatric irritability, while the fourth section looks at how it manifests itself through diagnoses such as mood and anxiety disorders, disruptive personality disorders, and autism. Finally, the ebook ends with a discussion of psychological and pharmacological treatments that have been shown to work. Clinicians, researchers, and trainees working with children and adolescents will find Irritability in Pediatric Psychopathology to be an invaluable resource.
