Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry / Edition 3by Gath Mayou Gelder, Philip Cowen, Richard Mayou, Dennis Gath
Pub. Date: 04/04/1996
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
The Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry has attracted worldwide acclaim for its lucid, comprehensive, and practical treatment of clinical psychiatry. It is not only the textbook of choice for trainee psychiatrists, but has also earned an enviable reputation as an invaluable reference resource for practising psychiatrists and general practitioners.
Emphasizing the practical clinical skills required for assessment and treatment, the third edition continues to provide an introduction to all the topics required by the trainee psychiatrist. Mainly concerned with general psychiatry, it also includes introductory sections on child psychiatry, mental retardation, and forensic psychiatry, as well as addressing problems in managing individual patients and the organization of service.
The text of this third edition has once again been extensively revised to take account of the most recent advances in knowledge and practice. The latest revisions of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD10) and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSMIV) have been fully incorporated, and there are significantly altered sections on stress-related and adjustment disorders, drugs and other physical treatments, psychological treatments, and psychiatric services.
