Synopsis:

Written by well-known and highly regarded experts from around the world, it takes a patient-centered approach making it an indispensable resource for all those involved in the care of patients with psychiatric disorders.

For this new edition, the section on the Neuroscientific Foundations of Psychiatry has been completely revised, with a new author team recruited by Section Editors Jonathan Polan and Eric Kandel.  The final section, Special Populations and Clinical Settings, features important new chapters on today’s most urgent topics, including the homeless, restraint and geriatric psychiatry.

  • Clinical vignettes describing current clinical practice in an attractive design
  • Numerous figures and tables that facilitate learning and comprehension appear throughout the text
  • Clear comparisons of the DSM-IV-TR and ICD-10 criteria for easy understanding in a global context
