It investigates the biopsychosocial factors that influence the onset, progression, and treatment responses of psychiatric disordersPsychotherapy and/or medication are typically used by child and adolescent psychiatrists to treat mental disorders in children.

Obtaining a psychiatric history from the child or adolescent and his or her parents or other caregivers is the first step in the psychiatric assessment. The current concerns about the child's emotional or behavioral issues, the child's physical health and development, the history of parental care (including possible abuse and neglect), family relationships, and the history of parental mental illness are all thoroughly examined in the assessment.
