Any recommendations for an adult psychiatrist to brush up on psychopharm in C&A?

The Stahl's C&A prescriber's guide isn't as good as its adult counterpart, but still good.

The Stahl's prescriber guide for children/adolescents is not great. I also don't love Rutter's for psychopharm although the assessment and management portions of each disorder are pretty good.

I like the Clinical Manual of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology by Robert Findling the most.

Green's Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychopharmacology is also good although a bit too thorough at times especially if you're seeking something more concise.

The two CAP textbooks that tend to be highly rated are Dulcan's book and Lewis's book.

Just thought of the McVoy manual as well (Clinical Manual of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology)
-- divided by diagnosis, easy to read, lots of tables and studies cited.

Amazon product

Yep this is my favorite one although they do need to come out with a new version soon.
