Psychiatry is increasingly a part of everyday life. The growing number of patients being diagnosed with depression, ADD, alcoholism, and other illnesses mean that few people are not touched by it. This book provides a valuable and comprehensible introduction to the subject. It starts with the history of its development as a scientific field, including the identification of major mental illnesses, the rise and fall of the asylum system, and the flourishing of psychoanalysis and other psychotherapies. More than any other branch of medicine, psychiatry has been attacked and criticized. There is a long list of perceived horrors--patient abuse, bizarre medical experiments, mind-control by evil governments, coercion by maniacal hypnotists. Modern psychiatry brings with it new controversies, such as the perceived over-prescription of antidepressants and behavior modifiers for children and teens, or unchecked marketing power of drug companies. This book does not draw conclusions on these issues, but rather provides the reader with a clear understanding of what psychiatry is, and what it does, so that they can draw their own. It is a great reference for anyone with an interest in mental illness and its treatment, students of psychiatry, medicine, psychology, and history of science, and health professionals.
Fully updated for DSM-5 and designed specifically for medical students, as well as other trainees in the heath professions, Psychiatry 3e is a dynamic introductory textbook in psychiatry. Ideally suited for first and second year medical students during their psychopathology course and third year medical students during their psychiatry clerkship, the material is presented in a clear, concise, and practical manner perfect for exam preparation. The authors provide a thorough yet concise introduction to clinical psychiatry, focusing on basic clinical skills like recognition and assessment of psychiatric illness. Clinically relevant information is emphasized, including practical interviewing techniques. Psychiatry 3e also uses case studies, DSM-5 guidelines, and extensive tables offset from the text to act as a comprehensive yet concise guide for the busy medical student studying for exams. In response to DSM-5, the third edition has been reorganised and fully updated to include the new disorders and classification of psychiatric illness.
The Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination is the first study guide that reflects the current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-5(R). Authors from the full career spectrum medical students, fellows, and junior and senior faculty collaborated in the development and refinement of this study guide, a monumental task undertaken and executed with professional seriousness and academic rigor. The selection of topics follows the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification Examination in Psychiatry 2015 Content Blueprint, thoroughly preparing and familiarizing readers with both the subject matter and test experience. Content for the approximately 400 questions contained in the study guide was culled from numerous, readily available American Psychiatric Publishing texts, and each multiple choice question is followed by explanations for both the correct and incorrect options, with the appropriate citations for further study. Although not the only resource readers should consult when preparing for the test, the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination is surely the best, most up-to-date tool available, and psychiatrists taking either the initial certification or the 10-year recertification examination will find it invaluable.
