Overview

The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry has been meticulously revised to maintain its preeminence as an accessible and authoritative educational reference and clinical compendium. More than 100 contributors -- 65 new to this edition -- summarize the latest developments in psychiatry, with new chapters on cellular and molecular biology; neuroanatomy; human sexuality and sexual dysfunctions; nonpharmacological somatic treatments; supportive psychotherapy; combined psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy; treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender patients; and assessment of dangerousness.

The book boasts a new interior design, with more figures and color throughout to aid comprehension. Each chapter ends with 5--10 key points, 5--10 recommended readings, and helpful Web sites for clinicians, patients, and family members. The book also includes complimentary access to the full text online. Online benefits include powerful searching, electronic bookmarking, and access by username and password from wherever you have Web access -- especially convenient for times when the print copy of your textbook is not where you are. The online version is accompanied by a downloadable PowerPoint presentation, which contains a wealth of material to enhance classroom presentation, study, and clinical use.

An indispensable resource for clinical psychiatrists studying for Part I of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology exam, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry is a proven teaching tool and an essential component of every practitioner's library.

Editorial Reviews

Jason P. Caplan

This is a fine textbook. It is very nicely produced, with abundant figures, tables, and illustrations. The chapters were written by many notable and respected clinicians, teachers, and researchers. The layout is very pleasing to the eye, with a red, white, and blue color theme used effectively throughout.

Philip E. Veenhuis

The book is a great read, a symphony of the most up-to-date knowledge in the field.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven T. Herron, MD (University of Arizona Health Sciences Center)
Description: The authors, who have both vast clinical and educational expertise, have compiled this weighty (8.4 lbs) and somewhat intimidating book to update previous versions with the most recent and relevant clinical psychiatric information.
Purpose: Ultimately, the purpose is to provide readers with a more complete understanding of the advances in the field since the last edition, as well as to offer a brief appreciation for the more classical approaches to the practice of psychiatry.
Audience: Though useful as a reference for anyone interested in learning more about mental health issues, the primary focus is on practitioners in the field, whether they be social workers, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical students, psychiatric residents, psychologists, or psychiatrists.
Features: Based primarily on the classification system used in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: Text Revision, 4th edition (American Psychiatric Publishing, 2000), the book addresses diagnostic, assessment, and treatment issues from a clinical perspective. Chapters are relatively easy to read, with ample references and many charts, graphs, diagrams, and tables to illustrate important aspects of the material. The editors were chosen for their overwhelming experience in their respective fields, and they have worked diligently to maintain consistency throughout the book.
Assessment: Thankfully, unlike Kaplan and Sadock's Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry, 8th edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005), this book has a much larger type, making the information more readable and stylistically less intimidating. The material is well researched and useful, and the chapters on suicide and the assessment of dangerousness are particularly well done, considering the wealth of information continuing to be published on these topics. Compared to other books (such as Kaplan and Sadock), this one seems much more approachable and less daunting. Its major drawback is its physical size, which detracts from its usefulness for anything other than a staying on a shelf for reference.
