Diagnosis and treatment of 38 children and adolescents is described. Results and follow up are reported. All acute crisis were resolved and some new diagnoses were formulated. Patients received treatment for their acute symptoms, and started treatment for their core disorders. Coordinations for continuation of ambulatory treatment were implemented.
