A child or adolescent psychiatrist typically sees patients with problems such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorders or autistic disorders. 

The diagnostic evaluations of child psychiatrists tend to focus on the the physical, genetic, developmental, emotional, cognitive, educational, family, peer, and social aspects of the problem. Many child psychiatrists use an integrated approach involving individual, group, or family psychotherapy, medications, and working closely with doctors or other professionals from schools, juvenile courts, or social agencies. In most cases, a child / adolescent psychiatrist is legally required to act as an advocate for the best interests of his / her children and adolescent client.
