Occasional Papers Series
ACAMH Occasional Papers (OPs) are themed, edited collections of articles, many of which are based on presentations at ACAMH events, providing updates and overviews of critical approaches to applying developments in child and adolesent mental health practice for the multidisciplinary professional community and for the benefit of children and families.
Individual articles, where based on presentations, are written to maintain the essence of the presentation while making them of scholarly publication value and a reference and review resource for teaching and clinical practice. Other articles are commissioned to supplement the coverage of research, clinical practice and CAMHS service issues and developments on the theme of the OP.
The Series Editor for the OP series is Cecilia Essau (2012- present) (Professor of Developmental Psychopathology & Director, Centre for Applied Research and Assessment in Child and Adolescent Wellbeing (CARACAW) at the Department of Psychology, Roehampton University, London); the series was previously edited by William (Bill) Yule (2000-2012) (Emeritus Professor of Applied Child Psychology, King's College London, Institute of Psychiatry).
