Guidelines Issued on Childhood Aggression

New recommendations have been released to assist primary-care and mental health specialists with caring for youth with childhood aggression. “Treatment of Maladaptive Aggression in Youth,” published online last week in the journal Pediatrics, includes recommendations for improving diagnosis and care, and avoiding inappropriate use of medication. The guidelines, created by Mayo Clinic researchers in collaboration with other research institutions, are available at www.thereachinstitute.org/files/documents/t-may-final.pdf.
