Fully revised and updated for the new edition, the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry provides the most up-to-date information clinically relevant to the doctor on the ground. Using a presentation-based format it provides detailed advice on clinical decision making after diagnosis. This handbook is an indispensable companion for any professional working in psychiatric medicine.

Covering all major psychiatric conditions and sub-specialties, this handbook provides practical and comprehensive guidelines and in-depth coverage of psychiatric assessment, psychopathology, evidence-based practice, therapeutic issues, and transcultural psychiatry. Fully up-to-date with the latest revisions of the DSM-IV and the ICD10, it is indexed alphabetically by classification codes and acute presentations for quick access. It reflects the recent major changes to psychiatric training and examination as well as the latest drug information. Reviewed by experienced clinicians, and revised by Specialist Trainees, this handbook not only gives expert advice for psychiatry professionals, but is also directly relevant to trainees in psychiatry. For the third edition, new information includes guidance on Adult ADHD, information on new drugs of abuse (e,g, GBL, GHB, mephodrone), and clinical decision-making in the prison setting. With such broad coverage and depth of guidance, this is the must-have pocket guide for all professionals and trainees working in psychiatry.

Dr Semple was appointed to his current post as a Consultant General Adult Psychiatrist at Hairmyres Hospital in 2004.
Dr Roger Smyth was born and educated in Belfast, Northern Ireland and came to Scotland to study Medicine at the University of Edinburgh. He trained in Psychiatry in South East Scotland. Together with a group of friends and colleagues he wrote the first edition of the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry. Dr Smyth took up his first Consultant Psychiatrist post in St John's Hospital, Livingston in 2004, and moved to the Department of Psychological Medicine at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh in 2006 to specialise in Liaison Psychiatry.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "...this book is a solid contender in a sea of similar handbooks, and readers will find that its periodic British nomenclature does not compromise its applicability to American Psychiatry......the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry offers a more impressive breadth of evidence-based material and will undoubtedly be a resource found in the pockets of many practitioners." --Portable Psychiatry: Praise and Aspirations for the Oxford Handbook, American Psychological Association, by Michelle Braun

"Enjoyable, concise, relevant, accesible information, clear, logical, essential reading for anyone in mental health, highly recommended!" --Reader review, Philip Cowin
