The Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry provides a comprehensive . Donald W.

The Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry provides a comprehensive introduction to the field both for students new to psychiatry and for students who are studying for their board exams. She is the author of numerous books including The Creating Brain: The Neuroscience of Genius, The Broken Brain: The Biological Revolution in Psychiatry, and Brave New Brain: Conquering Mental Illness in the Era of the Genome.

An established resource through three editions, the Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry has been thoroughly revised and tightened up to make it an even more effective text. The authors, long respected as teachers, clinicians, and researchers, have trimmed the content of the previous edition to make the book more practical and easier to use. Throughout, they continue to interweave recent advances in psychiatry with the core knowledge that students new to the field need—from grasping the neurobiology and genetics of mental illness to understanding the DSM system to assessing patients. Hailed as a “proven winner” and a “classic text,” this user-friendly volume is written in an accessible, conversational style for introductory psychiatry courses or psychiatry clerkships—or as an authoritative introduction to abnormal psychology for students of psychology, social work, or nursing. It introduces students to a wide range of psychiatric diagnoses—covering epidemiology, clinical features, and treatment—while providing additional coverage of special topics such as violence and suicide, legal issues that affect psychiatry, childhood disorders, sleep disorders, and both psychosocial and somatic therapies. As a teaching resource, it boasts several key features: tools that enhance learning, such as compelling case vignettes and “clinical pearls”—even more numerous in this edition—plus self-assessment questions a detailed introduction to the interview process, including specific questions that the clinician might ask patients a critical review of DSM-IV-TR covering all disorders, arranged by diagnostic class eleven chapters devoted to specific conditions, from cognitive disorders to personality disorders to impulse-control disorders, with handy tables of DSM-IV diagnostic criteria, practical assessment tips, and other key points a single-chapter introduction to the basics of child psychiatry, covering mental retardation, autism, ADHD, and more up-to-date information on drugs—including newer antidepressants—and guidelines for electroconvulsive therapy a glossary of key psychiatric terms, new to this edition Useful as either an introductory text or a primary reference, the Textbook encourages students to appreciate the art and science of contemporary psychiatry and to enjoy working with psychiatric patients. And as a concise summary of the field, it also serves as a reliable and an eminently readable refresher for busy practitioners.

This was a textbook I used back in college in a class called "The Sociology of Mental Illness" (btw: one of my favorite classes ever!). So, I knew what I was getting when I ordered it. It is very easy to read and comprehend, but contains excellent & vital information about mental illness and diagnosis/treatment protocols. As the title states though, it is just an introductory book so there are undoubtedly books with far more in depth/specialized content. However, since this is a textbook, I would assume most people buy it because it assigned.

I should have saved mine from college, but for some reason I sold it back (guess I was just thinking about money!) after the class. I was very happy to find a used copy at a great price on Amazon. I am now using this book as one of my go-to references for a writing project that involves mental illness and its treatment.

The book I received was in the exact condition the seller described. Perfectly usable, but a bit worn and highlighted quite a lot. Overall, great purchase!

This book takes a difficult subject and clarifies about as well as I can imagine. It is very nicely done, and a good reference or introductory text. It could use a bit more color, some illustrations, and some tables, but overall it is a very satisfactory book for its purpose.
Love to learn!
