Overview

This volume covers the management of acutely disturbed in-patients, drug and psychosocial approaches to the treatment of schizophrenia, and the problems of comorbid substance misuse and homelessness. It includes chapters on risk and childbirth, psychoses in the elderly, and the special problems of identifying and treating psychiatric disorders in those with learning disability. There is also practical advice on assessing fitness to be interviewed by the police, and on preparing medico-legal reports.

The text should prove especially useful in conjunction with the "College Seminars" titles and for those preparing for the College Membership Examinations.
