Psychiatry at a Glance provides a concise and visually-oriented summary of core psychiatric knowledge.

It's aimed primarily at clinical undergraduate medical students undertaking their psychiatry attachment and studying for final examinations. The tables and diagrams encapsulate all a student needs to know in order to pass, while the text supplies the extra detail necessary to do well.

It is equally useful to those training in allied health professions such as nursing, social work, psychology and pharmacy, and to psychiatric trainees. All of these individuals will find it a clear and user-friendly overview of psychiatry.

This edition has been thoroughly updated and a new chapter on psychiatric emergencies has been added. Key references for each chapter are provided, and readers can assess their progress by using the multiple choice questions at the end of the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...this book was an invaluable source of revision material for Psychiatry... I cannot fault this book on major issues, it got me through my finals!"

Cambridge Medicine - Jan 2001

"I found this to be a good book. It is a new addition to an established At A Glance series and gives a concise but reasonably comprehensive overview of psychiatry for medical students."

British Journal of Psychiatry

"...a refreshingly simple, easy to follow textbook.

...an up-to-date study guide at such a reasonable price, it is unbeatable and surely an almost compulsory buy."

St George's Hospital Medical Gazette

"Rating **** - actually forget the star ratings - just buy it for Finals!"

"I have just done Finals and this book was an invaluable source of revision material for Psychiatry. I did not bother using any other psychiatry textbook. I think many of my contemporaries did likewise" Cambridge Medicine/Jan01

"As far as the fourth year rotation in psychiatry is concerned, this excellent value for money book will give you a firm overview of what is required with respect to epidemiological evidence and aetiology of different diseases." Barts and the London Chronicle/Autumn 2000
