The second edition of A Primer of Clinical Psychiatry provides a broad overview of the major topics in psychiatry and provides the clinical skills necessary for competent clinical practice. It also includes an up-to-date overview of the scientific literature behind this fascinating and challenging medical discipline. This book covers in detail the psychiatric interview, the mental state examination, and clinical investigations relevant to psychiatry. All of the major syndromes of psychiatry are addressed including schizophrenia, depressive disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety, post-traumatic disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, eating disorders, somatoform disorders and personality disorders and cover epidemiology, aetiology and clinical aspects, and discussion of specific treatment approaches. A separate section reviews biological and psychosocial aspects of treatment in psychiatry, with worked case examples. A chapter on psychiatric emergencies is included in this section. Discrete chapters cover specialist areas such as child and adolescent psychiatry, old age psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, dual disability and substance use disorders. Enhancing each chapter is a case-based role-play scenario, complete with model answers. Each scenario is set out to model modern pedagogical theory, with roles, setting, tasks, and model answers all articulated and cross-referenced to the core text. Readers can adopt various roles within the scenarios, including that of the doctor (general practice registrars, interns, and residents), allied health staff, or patients themselves and their relatives. The scenarios cover everything from basic skills such as taking a history or describing a disorder, to more advanced problems, such as working with the hostile family and assessing risk in the emergency setting. This case-based role-play approach is ideal for those preparing for psychiatry Observed Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs). A Primer of Clinical Psychiatry 2nd edition aims to introduce the pertinent facts of clinical psychiatry to medical students and students of mental health disciplines. It will also be a useful resource for established clinicians, including GPs and the more advanced psychiatric trainee or mental health professional. • Case-based scenarios provide a practical application of theory in real life and are ideal for OSCE preparation. • Drug dosages prescribed for biological treatment of psychiatric diseases add to the clinical aspect of the book • New chapters on the history of psychiatry and ethics in psychiatry have been added to this edition. • The section “How to use this book helps the reader navigate the book effectively and efficiently.

Research in neuroscience is revolutionizing how we think about psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. Psychiatric disorders reflect dysfunction of the human mind and involve changes in cognition, emotion, and motivation. Understanding how the neural networks that underlie these mental functions become dysfunctional holds great promise for devising innovative approaches to diagnosis and treatment. Scientific progress is being driven, in part, by advances in human functional neuroimaging, which is being used to characterize the activity of specific brain circuits at rest and during the performance of specific tasks. Moreover, advances in clinical neuroscience are being coupled with expanding knowledge about genetics and cellular and synaptic neuroscience. Taken together, these advancements offer the hope of much more mechanism-based approaches to treatment in the future. Better understanding of neural circuits also can provide the basis for innovative psychotherapeutic strategies that take advantage of brain plasticity for purposes of neurorehabilitation. In this book, we examine recent developments in the field of network neuroscience and their potential impact on clinical psychiatry, including the way that psychiatrists are trained and interact with other medical specialties and mental health professionals.

The Textbook of Medical Psychiatry was written for the wide range of clinicians who grapple with the diagnostic and treatment challenges inherent in this clinical reality: medical and psychiatric illnesses do not occur in isolation from one another. Because assessment in these cases may be challenging, the book addresses general medical conditions that directly cause psychiatric illness and the medical differential diagnosis of common psychiatric illnesses. In addition, the book describes how the presentation and treatment of both psychiatric and medical disorders are modified by the presence of comorbid conditions. The editors, who are at the forefront of the field, have assembled an outstanding group of contributors, all of whom share the objective of helping psychiatrists, internists, neurologists, trainees, and other health care providers recognize the medical issues facing patients with psychiatric symptoms, and vice versa. Proper assessment and treatment are dependent on the skillful application of this knowledge. Written in down-to-earth, clinically grounded prose, this text Provides a comprehensive exploration of approaches to the patient, including perspectives from internists and neurologists on dealing with diagnostic uncertainty and special chapters on the neurological examination, cognitive testing, neuroimaging, laboratory testing, and toxicological syndromes. Presents a review of medical disorders that can directly or indirectly affect the clinical presentation and course of psychiatric disorders. Presents a review of psychiatric disorders that can be caused by medical illnesses or affect the clinical presentation and course of medical disorders. Includes chapters on pain, insomnia, and somatoform disorders, conditions that accompany many psychiatric and medical illnesses and that fall in the boundary between these practice settings. In clinics and offices every day, physicians encounter patients whose presentations are atypical or whose symptoms are not responsive to usual care. When facing the challenges of accurately assessing complicated symptoms and managing the care of complex patients, clinicians often seek advice from colleagues whose perspectives and expertise they trust. The chapters in the Textbook of Medical Psychiatry can be consulted in much the same fashion, expanding clinicians' knowledge base and helping them to more effectively diagnose and care for their patients.

Chapter topics cover the major activities of the contemporary clinical psychologist with an introduction focusing on training models. The book has a mentoring style designed to highlight the relevance of the topics discussed to clinicians in training. Assessment and treatment chapters focus on evidence-based practice, comparing and contrasting different options, the basis for clinical choice between them, and efficacy of same. It will also introduce the business and ethical aspects of the clinical career that current introductory books do not include, such ethics in assessment, treatment, and research; third party payers; technological developments; dissemination of research findings; cross-cultural issues; and the future of the profession. The text is designed for students in their first year of clinical psychology graduate training. * Includes assessment, treatment, and practice issues * Compares and contrasts different therapeutic styles * Exemplifies practical application through case studies * Focuses on evidence-based practice * Orients future clinicians to contemporary issues facing psychological practices
