Sleep-related symptoms are common in several psychiatric diagnostic categories. The overlap of sleep and psychiatric disorder has been demonstrated in several studies. The understanding of sleep and psychiatry has progressively evolved in the last decade and newer insights are developed regarding the complex interaction between sleep and psychopathology. In addition to the revision in diagnostic categories and criteria in the DSM-5, there have also been advances in psychopharmacology, comorbidities including substance use, psychiatric issues in medical disorders and medical sequelae of psychiatric treatments. The concurrent impact of these changes and advances on sleep symptoms is important to understand for effective outcomes.
This Special Issue will address such under-represented topics in sleep medicine and child psychiatry. Short and focused reviews will be considered for publication. Examples could include manuscripts that discuss the effect of newer psychiatric medications on sleep, post-concussive syndrome and effects of sleep, cannabis use and sleep in youth, etc.
We hope that this Special Issue will provide an update on advances and challenges in the field of pediatric sleep medicine and child psychiatry with the goal of generating thought-provoking directions for further investigation, and provide quick references on the latest trends in sleep and psychiatry for busy pediatric and psychiatric practitioners.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
