Dr Chris Wever MBBS FRANZCP

Child, Adolescent & Family Psychiatrist 

Author

Chris Wever is a child psychiatrist who works in private practice on the Gold Coast, Queensland, AUS. Chris deals with a broad range of mental health problems but has a special interest in Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Anxiety Disorders in children. These difficulties create great problems in a child's life and upset the wellbeing of the child's family. The trouble they can cause is often underestimated. 

The books that Chris writes are based on the scientific evidence about each psychiatric issue and well-tested clinical treatment programs that he has developed. 

Chris has also written articles in scientific journals and published detailed treatment guidelines for general practitioners in the national medical magazine, Australian Doctor. He has also written chapters for textbooks on child psychiatry and frequently speaks at conferences for clinicians and educators. 

Chris' straightforward and accurate way of talking about childhood mental health problems is an essential part of his effective and humane clinical practice and this approach is evident in all of his books.
