Newly revised and updated, this is the definitive reference work on psychiatric terminology. It encompasses new information that has arisen from research advances, social changes, legal developments, and educational innovations since the appearance of the fifth edition in 1981. Many new terms have been added from the study of agoraphobia and panic disorder; sleep, speech, and eating disorders; depression; disorders in cognitive functioning; and particularly from neuroscience and psychopharmacology. In addition, the nomenclature of the recently revised third edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association has been incorporated. The result is an authoritative reference that offers encyclopedic, up-to-date coverage of all areas of psychiatric interest. Called "by far the best and most complete dictionary devoted to this subject" (Psychiatric Quarterly on a previous edition), this new edition will be welcomed by all professionals and students in the field of mental health.

Review:

"If you frequently read contemporary psychiatric, psychological, or sociologic literature, you should own this dictionary. That it has continued into a seventh edition is probably more convincing praise than I can give. If you own the sixth edition, you should consider buying the new one: Campbell has added more than 2000 new terms and has taken pains to incorporate new terms and diagnostic criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual IV of the American Psychiatric Association. And for a book of this size and content, its price is eminently fair."--Annals of Internal Medicine

"Although the volume is titled a dictionary, it serves nicely as an encyclopedia for the more important terms which are not only defined but also described and explained. This makes the volume very convient for the reader...The definitions and accompanying information were clear, accessible, and authoritative....Very useful to a variety of mental health specialists..."--Contemporary Psychology

"...comprehensible to the non-specialist....this work is recommended for libraries supporting degree programs in psychology, counseling, and social work. AS for selection by medical school libraries, the dictionary is a must."--American Reference Books Annual

"Although the volume is titled a dictionary, it serves nicely as an encyclopedia for the more important terms which are not only defined but also described and explained. This makes the volume very convenient for the reader...The definitions and accompanying information were clear, accessible, and authoritative....Very useful to a variety of mental health specialists..."--Contemporary Psychology
