9780470018545: Essentials of Psychiatry

Essentials of Psychiatry provides a synopsis of the most critical material in the field of psychiatry. It covers the whole field, including assessment of the patient, definitions of each disorder, all treatment options and prognosis. The phenomenological classification of disorders is based on the APA’s DSM-IV-TR: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. This is followed by full treatment plans for each condition and a review of each therapy option in a dedicated therapeutics section.

  • Provides all the clinical information needed by psychiatry trainees to complete their residency and pass the boards
  • All psychiatric assessment tools are described in detail
  • Full descriptions of the DSM-IV-TR Diagnostic Criteria sets for each disorder
  • Clinical vignettes (case histories) describe difficult clinical scenarios and give management options and outcome

This book is relevant to trainees in psychiatry worldwide, as well as other mental health workers such as psychologists, mental health nurses and social workers.

From the Back Cover:

Essentials of Psychiatry is a comprehensive practical text covering the discipline of psychiatry. Abridged from the hugely successful and highly praised Psychiatry, second edition by two internationally recognized psychiatrists, this text covers both the foundations of psychiatry and the clinical management of disorders.

Sections on Approaches to the Patient, Developmental Perspectives, and Scientific Foundations set the scene for the comprehensive Assessment, Disorders and Therapeutics sections. These are enhanced by clinical vignettes that further illustrate the complexity of each condition.

Exciting, accessible, and clinically relevant, Essentials of Psychiatry is an invaluable resource for trainees in psychiatry and other mental health disciplines, as well as any clinician looking for a comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date reference text for the assessment and treatment of mental disorders.

Praise for Psychiatry, Second Edition

There is no question in my mind that Psychiatry is the definitive textbook that the United States can proudly offer to the world at this critical point in the history of our discipline.
