Abstract

Objective: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a treatment modality in children that can be life-saving but is rarely preferred. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the knowledge, experience, and attitudes of child and adolescent psychiatrists (CAPs) in Turkey about pediatric ECT and to draw attention to possible gaps and needs regarding this treatment in the child and adolescent psychiatric policies of Turkey.
