9781904671336: Research Methods in Psychiatry, 3rd Edition

This updated comprehensive guide to psychiatric research methods takes the reader from getting started in research through to publishing a paper, with advice on avoiding common pitfalls along the way.

Five completely new chapters cover topics such as research from the trainees perspective and research in learning disability and child and adolescent psychiatry.A key text for psychiatric trainees embarking on research projects, this book will also be useful to psychiatrists supervising research projects, and those in the social sciences with an interest in carrying out research or critically reviewing the published evidence.

About the Author:

Chris Freeman (Consultant Psychiatrist at Royal Edinburgh Hospital) and Peter Tyrer (Professor of Community Psychiatry at Imperial College London and Editor of The British Journal of Psychiatry).

Review:

This volume is a broad overview of research methods that will be helpful to psychiatric trainees who are interested in initiating their first research activities. Although it is written from the perspective of investigators in the United Kingdom, nearly all of the book will be relevant to researchers in the United States. --Stephen R. Marder - Journal Of Clinical Psychiatry, January 2009
