Overview

In recent years, the impact of deindustrialization, technological advances, and escalating costs of care has brought about immense changes in Canadian psychiatric practice. In addition, Canada -- like most other countries -- faces the challenge of providing accessible, effective, humane, and cost-efficient health care in the midst of downsizing, restrictions, and cutbacks. Images in Psychiatry: Canada outlines the historical development of psychiatry in Canada; highlights various aspects of current psychiatric practice, both in general and in highly specialized areas; and traces research development foci of Canadian endeavor. The contributors, a group of nationally and internationally recognized practitioners, provide not only an overview of the current situation but also informed predictions concerning the future of Canadian psychiatry.
