Dr. Dennis Dorf, a fourth-year medical resident in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry program at the Medical College of Georgia, recently had his children’s book review published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
Dorf reviewed Ravi’s Roar by Tom Percival, a story that follows how a young boy named Ravi learns to channel big feelings. The book is part of Percival’s “Big Bright Feelings” picture book series, which offers a kid-friendly entry point into emotional intelligence topics.
Dorf is proud his review was included in such an esteemed journal.
“The review is part of the journal’s highly regarded Book Forum, a celebrated series that assists psychiatrists, pediatricians and parents, too, in formulating a conscientious diagnosis — or creating a diligent treatment plan — for a challenging patient,” said Dorf.
“The review helps define, understand and address the difficulties that children with emotion dysregulation face on a daily basis, through the lens of any reader of creative fiction or advocate for children.”
Dorf earned his master’s degree in public health from Stony Brook University School of Medicine and his doctorate in osteopathic medicine from the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine.
