Clinical Psychiatry for Medical Students / Edition 3

Widely used as the core text for psychiatry clerkships and a board review for psychiatry residents, Clinical Psychiatry for Medical Students is now in its revised, updated Third Edition. The text emphasizes the biopsychosocial model as a framework for clinical psychiatry and includes many clinical examples. Current DSM-IV diagnostic categories are used throughout the book. This edition features a new chapter on legal issues in psychiatry and completely rewritten chapters on biopsychosocial assessment and case formulation; delirium, dementia, and other disorders associated with cognitive impairment; schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders; personality disorders; mood disorders; anxiety disorders; geriatric psychiatry; dissociative disorders; psychiatric disorders of childhood and adolescence; biological therapies for mental disorders; basic principles of pain management; and behavioral medicine strategies for medical patients.This text is particularly effective when used in conjunction with Stoudemire's Human Behavior: An Introduction for Medical Students, also in its newly revised Third Edition.
