    This volume assists practicing mental health professionals in expanding
    their knowledge about nutritional and herbal interventions that can be
    attempted as alternatives to prescription medications. Designed to
    provide guidance for non-medical caregivers treating children and
    adolescents who present with emotional and/or behavioral difficulties
    such as such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, sleep difficulties,
    impulsivity, distractibility, and other psychological and psychiatric
    disorders, the volume provides a comprehensive discussion of
    naturopathic solutions based on existing research. In areas where
    research is not extensive, conclusions are provided about potentially
    beneficial effects based on the specific pharmacologic action of the
    compounds. Dosage for specific age groups, schedules of administration,
    dietary considerations (i.e., whether or not to take the supplement with
    food), monitoring for response and adverse effects, signs of dangerous
    reactions, and the need to control interactions with other compounds
    (i.e., prescription medications) are thoroughly reviewed with regard to
    each supplement discussed in the book.

    Reviews specific psychological disorders (i.e. ADHD, depression, mania,
    anxiety, sleep difficulties, tic behaviors and autism) and the available
    data about their treatment with the use of nutritional and herbal
    supplements.

    Provides rationale for the use of every specific compound with detailed
    recommendations tailored for each age group with regard to the dosage,
    frequency of administration, possible dangers and monitoring for side
    effects.

    Discusses claims of efficacy used to market various products and ground
    those claims within fully vetted scientific research.

    Discusses neurobiology, pharmacodynamics and pharmokinetics in detailed
    but accessible language
