Lecture Notes: Psychiatry takes a novel and common sense approach to psychiatry. It is written mainly for medical students and junior doctors on foundation programmes, although anyone wanting a concise account of the principles of clinical psychiatry will find the book a useful resource.
The book emphasizes how psychiatry is not only a specialty, but an essential part of general medical practice. It starts with a clear description of psychiatric assessment, followed by brief but comprehensive accounts of all the important disorders, their causes and treatment. It provides an up-to-date and evidence-based approach that integrates the three core elements of psychiatry: biology, psychology and sociology.
Each chapter ends with summary points for revision, and the book includes a series of multiple-choice questions with answers.
