DE LA BARRA M, Flora  and  GARCIA S, Ricardo. Impatient psychiatric treatment in children and adolescents: Literature revision. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2009, vol.47, n.3, pp.228-237. ISSN 0717-9227.

The main findings on the literature about inpatient psychiatric treatment of children and adolescents is reported. The trend towards shorter lengths of stay and more intensive treatment has produced several changes and encouraged research on more effective treatments for severe cases undergoing decompensations in their illness. Brief hospitalization is seen as part of a continuum of specialized care. New models of treatment and outcome studies are reviewed, as well as treatment guidelines and recommendations.

Keywords : Inpatient psychiatric treatment; children and adolescents psychiatric treatment; psychiatric intensive care.
