Editorial Reviews

American Journal of Psychiatry
“The student will learn much and learn it enjoyably[...] For medical students' learning, non-psychiatric physicians' reviewing, or just a plain good read, this is a winner.”
Contemporary Psychiatry
“It is funny, occasionally provocative, and filled with clinically relevant descriptions of the important diagnostic features of the major psychiatric syndromes.”
The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
“An important component of the work regarding students and residents is that it leaves nothing to chance; important terms are clearly defined, and the facts are placed into a historical context, which helps the novice understand the evolution of the field…. Excellent case descriptions bring the abstract concepts to life…. [T]he information provided is relevant and to the point, with excellent instruments for clinicians to use in day-to-day practice…It will be invaluable to students during an initial psychiatric experience. Overall, this is a readable, easy-to-understand, and helpful basic text for students, or ‘refresher’ for practicing clinicians.”
Allan Josephson
“Essential Psychopathology and Its Treatment gives us so much. The authors cogently lead the reader through a rich discussion of conceptual issues, followed by a detailed review of specific disorders. It is a treat! From the novice practitioner to the experienced clinician, this readable volume has something for all who attempt to treat those whose psychopathology has interrupted life's journey.”

    Essential Psychopathology and It's Treatment

    This book is outstanding, it perfectly coincides with the DSM-IV-TR. The Dsm is very cut and dry and this text helps layout the diagnoses, it helps you to actually want to read about the diagnoses. Highly recommended purchase if you are going to school for psychology course. Very helpful with my Masters in Forensic Psychology.
