The Role, Responsibilities and Work of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

Extract

This document, produced by the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Section of the College, is aimed at administrators, trainees considering entering the specialty, and colleagues in other disciplines. Its purpose is to describe the role of child and adolescent psychiatrists today, who work largely as part of a multidisciplinary team and may be based in a hospital or in the community. There is increasing emphasis on community work: assessment, treatment and preventive work is carried out with children and their families in close liaison with mainly non-medical colleagues. Such multidisciplinary teamwork has many advantages, but presents delicate problems in ethics and organization. In what follows ‘child psychiatrist’ will be generally used to mean ‘child and adolescent psychiatrist’.
