Practical Problems in Clinical Psychiatry by Keith E. Hawton

Controversial issues and dilemmas complicate the clinical management of patients in all fields of medicine. In psychiatry, however, there are probably more difficulties than in any other branch of medical practice. In this book, internationally respected contributors have written on topics in which they are acknowledged experts or have taken a particular interest. The topics cover a broad range, including psychopharmacological and psychological treatment issues, and problems that arise in general psychiatry, consultation-liaison psychiatry, and family practice. There is particular emphasis on management strategies, including up-to-date reviews of relevant clinical and scientific literature. With its wealth of practical clinical guidance, the book will be particularly useful as a text for graduate courses in psychiatry.
