Prozac, Xanax, Halcion, Haldol, Lithium. These psychiatric drugs--and dozens of other short-term "solutions"--are being prescribed by doctors across the country as a quick antidote to depression, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other psychiatric problems. But at what cost?In this searing, myth-shattering exposé, psychiatrist Peter R. Breggin, M.D., breaks through the hype and false promises surrounding the "New Psychiatry" and shows how dangerous, even potentially brain-damaging, many of its drugs and treatments are. He asserts that: psychiatric drugs are spreading an epidemic of long-term brain damage; mental "illnesses" like schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety disorder have never been proven to be genetic or even physical in origin, but are under the jurisdiction of medical doctors; millions of schoolchildren, housewives, elderly people, and others are labeled with medical diagnoses and treated with authoritarian interventions, rather than being patiently listened to, understood, and helped.Toxic Psychiatry sounds a passionate, much-needed wake-up call for everyone who plays a part, active or passive, in America's ever-increasing dependence on harmful psychiatric drugs.
Substantially revised to include a wealth of new material, the second edition of this highly acclaimed work provides a concise, coherent introduction that brings structure to an increasingly fragmented and amorphous discipline. Paul R. McHugh and Phillip R. Slavney offer an approach that emphasizes psychiatry's unifying concepts while accommodating its diversity. Recognizing that there may never be a single, all-encompassing theory, the book distills psychiatric practice into four explanatory methods: diseases, dimensions of personality, goal-directed behaviors, and life stories. These perspectives, argue the authors, underlie the principles and practice of all psychiatry. With an understanding of these fundamental methods, readers will be equipped to organize and evaluate psychiatric information and to develop a confident approach to practice and research.

The field of psychiatry is evolving rapidly specifically in the areas of classification of many psychiatric disorders, psychopharmacology and psychotherapeutics. The new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: DSM-5 which was introduced in 2013 forms the basis of the new classification system in psychiatry. The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology is also in the process of phasing in DSM-5 criteria to the board examination, such that by 2017 the examination material will exclusively reflect the new manual. As psychiatric trainees and psychiatrists prepare for their certification and recertification examinations using the new classification system, a new board review textbook is imperative to address these changes in order to prepare them for the certification examinations as well as for their clinical practice. To help with this process we have compiled a list of 1000 questions and answers in psychiatry and neurology using the most current information available in the field and using the DSM 5 classification system. This book has been specifically written for the busy professional who does not have the time to access numerous resources necessary to prepare for professional examinations.
