An important antecedent to the specialty of child psychiatry was the social recognition of childhood as a special phase of life with its own developmental stages, starting with the neonate and eventually extending through adolescence. The child and adolescent psychiatrist makes a diagnosis based on the model of behavior and emotional symptoms, using a standardized set of diagnostic criteria such as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. The child and adolescent psychiatrist then designs a treatment plan which considers all the components and discusses these recommendations with the child or adolescent and family. Child and adolescent psychiatrists are also qualified adult psychiatrists. Many residents are diffident to consider sub specialization because they think they will have to ""give up"" seeing adult patients, which they enjoy. The reality is that most child and adolescent psychiatrists also see adults.OMICS Group International through its Open Access Initiative is committed to make genuine and reliable contributions to the scientific community.
