Along with providing good education, school has got a role in child protection, which is now another important birthright of child after ‘education’. Observant teachers may be able to recognise signs of stress or stress related psychiatric problems earlier in school children than family/friends may be able to. Those things that work best in education occur when everyone is on the same page. Some therapists feel poetry is highly effective in helping patients overcome difficult emotional situations and mental illness. It is of utmost importance to identify children with psychological problems early and target them for quick interventions so as to be able to nail the problems at an early stage. Pro-social behaviours are crucial to children’s well-being. The life skills program focus on the development of the skills needed for life. Folie a deux or shared psychotic disorder (SPD) is a rare illness. A frame of reference (FOR) is a set of interrelated internally consistent concepts, definitions, postulates that provide a systematic description of and prescription for a practitioner’s interaction within a particular aspect of a profession’s domain. Children, adolescents and young are neurodevelopmentally predisposed to be emotionally unstable, impulsive, adventurous and violent. The anxiety-related psychophysiological disorders have been addressed directly by hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective treatments for low self-esteem and low confidence. Young minds are getting highly influenced by the rapid spread of world-wide-web. All types of child abuse and neglect leave lasting scars. The collaboration between the child psychiatrists, primary care physicians and paediatric specialists will require ongoing attention and research in order to optimise the multidisciplinary approach to the chronically ill paediatric patients with HIV/AIDS. The safe and effective use of medications has enabled many children to attend school and achieve academic success. Criminality simply may be the most obvious sign of a wide variety of mental disorders and environmental stressors, the final common pathway of which is aggression. Proposed revision of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM V) includes a section for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in preschool children. Research on the mechanisms of resilience would inform prevention and intervention strategies for child maltreatment and, in particular, neglect.
