As a scientific discipline, psychiatry has enormous breadth. It comprises both the technical, as in the frontier-expanding research in molecular genetics - and the human and personal, as in the insights and support therapeutically given when a clinician treats a patient. "The Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry" equips the clinical student with a sure and knowledgeable grasp of the many facets of psychiatry. Now in its fifth edition, this best-selling book has been revised and updated to reflect the latest advancements in the field. Guiding readers in an easy-to-follow, conversational style, the expert authors and teachers divide the text into three parts: Part I focuses on the background of psychiatry, including diagnosis and classification, interview and assessment techniques, and the neurobiology and genetics of mental illness. Part II introduces all DSM disorders, arranged by diagnostic category. Part III addresses special topics, such as legal issues, child psychiatry, psychotherapy, and psychopharmacology. The book also includes insightful case vignettes, valuable key points, helpful self-assessment questions, useful tables and charts throughout, and a glossary of commonly used terms. "The Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry, Fifth Edition", is a comprehensive textbook made for learning. This relevant and essential tool will give its readers an advantageous start in the exciting field of contemporary psychiatry.
