Revised and updated, the third edition of this extremely popular textbook incorporates the latest thinking in the field. The authors tackle head on the fact that psychological medicine is not a unified whole but a highly variegated field which relies on very different conceptual models. The models of psychiatric thought are outlined in a clear and accessible fashion, with the liberal use of entertaining cartoons to lighten the subject. In this edition the authors have also included boxes throughout the text which contain practical tips and details of case histories.
