Description

Designed specifically for medical students, as well as other trainees in the health professions, including social workers, occupational therapists, and psychiatric residents, Psychiatry 2e 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, including extensive tables, 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 2e also uses case studies, DSM-IV 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 addition, the second edition includes a new chapter devoted to child and adolescent psychiatry and the authors have expanded their coverage of cultural and geriatric issues in psychiatry. A broader discussion of the psychotherapies is also included, in recognition of the increasing role that cognitive behavior therapy plays in the treatment of many psychiatric conditions. Written by two well-known Columbia University Professors who direct medical student education in psychiatry, the tone is balanced and practical, perfect for the medical student not specializing in psychiatry.
