Seminars in general adult psychiatry

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This second edition of Seminars in General Adult Psychiatry provides a highly readable and comprehensive account of modern adult psychiatry. More than nine years have passed since the publication of the first edition, and significant advances have been made in almost every area of psychiatry. This single volume assimilates these modern developments and their effects on clinical practice. To achieve this has meant incorporating more than 4000 references, with many of the more important studies being described in some detail so as to provide the reader with some of the original data on which modern evidence-based medicine depends. Key features of the first edition that have been retained are the detailed clinical descriptions of psychiatric disorders, and historical sections to give the reader access to the classic studies of psychiatry as well as the current evidence. Additional topics covered here for the first time include liaison psychiatry, psychosexual medicine, clinical epidemiology, and international and cultural psychiatry. Clinical management is given due prominence, with extensive accounts of modern drug management, cognitive therapy, the main psychosocial approaches, and current guidelines such as those published by NICE. An essential text for trainees studying for their MRCPsych, this book is also a one-stop reference work for established practitioners. Comprehensive coverage of the whole of adult psychiatry. Detailed clinical descriptions of both common and rare psychiatric disorders. Accounts of the history, epidemiology, diagnosis and clinical management of all the broad categories of disorder. An evidence-based approach. New chapters on liaison psychiatry, clinical epidemiology, psychosexual medicine, and international and cultural psychiatry. Easy to read, with more than 260 tables and boxes summarising key information. New compact, single-volume format.
