Resident Physician’s Book Review published in a renowned journal of child psychiatry – Jagwire
Dr. Dennis Dorf, fourth-year medical resident in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Program at the Medical College of Georgia, recently published the review of his children’s books in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
Dorf rated Ravi’s roar by Tom Percival, a story that follows how a young boy named Ravi learns to channel great feelings. The book is part of Percival’s “Big Bright Feelings” picture book series, which provides a child-friendly entry point on topics related to emotional intelligence.
Dorf is proud that his review has been included in such an esteemed journal.
“The journal is part of the journal’s highly regarded Book Forum, a famous series that also helps psychiatrists, pediatricians and parents formulate a conscientious diagnosis – or create a diligent treatment plan – for a difficult patient,” said said Dorf.
âThe journal helps define, understand and resolve the challenges facing children with emotional deregulation on a daily basis, through the prism of any reader of creative fiction or advocate for children. “
Dorf received his Masters of Public Health from Stony Brook University School of Medicine and his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Read his full book review in an excerpt from the October 2021 issue of Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
