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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lisa B. Rosenbaum(Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book is an overview of the development and current practice of psychiatry in Canada. It examines the types of practice services performed, by whom, and to whom they are offered; educational opportunities in psychiatry; and current research areas.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a brief description of the current state of psychiatry in the face of recent technological and financial changes in the Canadian health care system.
Audience: The book is targeted toward psychiatrists interested in the Canadian system of psychiatry. However, it is accessible to all practitioners, epidemiologists, and others who wish to examine another country's psychiatric practice.
Features: The book contains an adequate table of contents and index, and the few tables that are used are relevant. The editor also added a list of contributors that specifies each individual's position and affiliation. The chapters have useful headings and are well organized. The references are clearly marked and pertinent.
Assessment: This book serves as an excellent synopsis of Canadian psychiatry. The chapters highlight the past and present practices of specialized areas in psychiatry and explore predictions about the future of each discipline. Moreover, the contributors educate the reader about current practices both in the public and private sectors and discuss differences between psychiatric care in rural versus urban settings. American readers will discover interesting comparisons between Canadian and American psychiatry that may serve to influence the course of American psychiatry.
