Approach to the Psychiatric Patient: Case Based Essays consists of more than 100 essays that address one of 10 carefully selected psychiatric cases. The essays reflect the breadth of modern psychiatry, the cases span the diagnostic spectrum, and the situations range from emergency rooms and inpatient services to outpatient psychotherapy offices.

Some of the country s most eminent psychiatrists and psychologists including basic scientists, social scientists, clinicians, clinical researchers, psychopharmacologists, and psychoanalysts have contributed essays. Each author was asked to discuss a specific aspect of a case, as if providing a curbside consult to a colleague or student. In addition to presenting a perspective on our knowledge base, each author highlights pertinent dilemmas, ambiguities, and limitations. In so doing, the authors help create a richly complex mosaic that reflects a sophisticated biopsychosocial approach to patients.

All of the authors are affiliated with one or more of the following institutions: Weill Cornell Medical College, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and Rockefeller University.

Approach to the Psychiatric Patient is a thought-provoking accompaniment to standard psychiatric textbooks. Not only does it provide interesting perspectives on psychiatric knowledge, theory, and practice, it encourages an approach that combines curiosity, skepticism, and compassion.

From the Inside Flap:

Approach to the Psychiatric Patient consists of more than 100 essays that address one of 10 carefully selected psychiatric cases. The essays reflect the breadth of modern psychiatry, the cases span the diagnostic spectrum, and the situations range from emergency rooms and inpatient services to outpatient psychotherapy offices.

Basic scientists, social scientists, clinicians, clinical researchers, psychopharmacologists, and psychoanalysts have contributed 1500-word essays. Each author was asked to discuss a specific aspect of a case, as if providing a "curbside consult" to a colleague or student. In addition to presenting a sharp perspective on our knowledge base, each author highlights pertinent dilemmas and ambiguities. In so doing, the authors help create a sophisticated biopsychosocial approach to patients.

Approach to the Psychiatric Patient's unique structure and multiplicity of perspectives place it as a valuable accompaniment to traditional psychiatric reviews, pocket guides, and specialty texts. The brief, accessible essays demonstrate the sophisticated complexity of modern psychiatry while also underlining the field's limitations and opportunities.

In order to create the book's richly complex mosaic, the editor has attracted some of the country's most eminent psychiatrists and psychologists. There are several ways to attract such a multidisciplinary group and to then encourage their best efforts. In this case, the editor chose to recruit faculty members from one set of interconnected institutions: Weill Cornell Medical College, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and Rockefeller University. This limitation inevitably led to the exclusion of some distinguished authors, but it did lead to the vigorous participation of some experts who might not have otherwise agreed to contribute.

Practical and thoughtful, Approach to the Psychiatric Patient serves as an expert on the shoulder to clinicians who approach psychiatric patients as well as to anyone who is curious about the state of the art of modern psychiatry.
