Overview

A synopsis of the most important material included within the third edition of The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychiatry, the newly titled Essentials of Clinical Psychiatry is intended for medical students to use during their third-year clerkship or fourth-year psychiatry electives and for junior psychiatry residents who want a comprehensive overview of clinical psychiatry.

The editors carefully reviewed the 50 chapters contained within The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychiatry, Third Edition and selected the 25 most important and relevant for clinical practice in a variety of settings: inpatient, partial hospitalization, outpatient, and rehabiliation programs. The authors edited up to 50% of the text, selecting the material that they felt was most important for senior medical students and psychiatry residents. The retained material within each chapter was again carefully reviewed to ensure that there were no significant omissions for the reader.

Praise for the Previous Edition:

"The editors assembled an excellent group of authors, many of whom are widely recognized as experts in their areas and whose knowledge of the subjects is broadly appreciated_. The leadoff chapter by Steven E. Hyman and Joseph T. Coyle, "The Neuroscientific Foundation of Psychiatry," is excellent and very clear. Similar comments can be made for many of the other individual chapters in this section as well as in the other sections. This book can certainly serve as a reference for individuals in psychiatry and out of it who are looking for a clearly written, succinct, and up-to-date handling of the topics."----American Journal of Psychiatry

"Unlike the Kaplan and Sadock's Synopsis, it has been written and edited to a very high standard and lacks some of the features that mar its competitor such as fragmentation, repetition, addiction to the very latest unassimilable positron emission tomography (PET) scan findings and eccentric bibliographies. This book achieves a very good balance between the new and the old, between the long-standing ideas and issues that shape the history of each topic and the very recent research."----Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nancy Schell, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book is a condensed version of Hales' The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychiatry, 3rd Edition (American Psychiatric Press, 1999), with a primary emphasis on the fundamental knowledge base and skills necessary for clinical practice in various settings. There is a companion study guide of questions, though that is not reviewed here.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a synopsis of the most important material contained in the third edition of The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychiatry for ease of access and understanding.
Audience: It is intended for medical students and junior psychiatry residents.
Features: Strong features of the book are comprehensiveness and integration. Each topic is fully integrated with a clear discussion of biological and psychological aspects. The contents are comprehensive and include neuroscience, normal childhood development and childhood disorders, interview techniques with good examples, lab and other diagnostic tests, a full section on disorders and their treatment, as well as another section devoted to various specific treatment modalities. Within the text are tables of the DSM-IV criteria and other helpful charts or illustrations. A separate appendix is a compilation of the DSM-IV criteria. Though most ideas are well explained, the glossary is a helpful addition. References are plentiful.
Assessment: This book is exceptionally well suited to the stated audience. It is written clearly and is easy to understand and read. The editors meet their goal of highlighting the essentials. The book is very relevant and is highly recommended
