About this book

Introduction

We have arranged this review text in an order that makes clinical sense. We have assumed that the student has had considerable experience with the field of Psychi­ atry via didactic courses, clinical rotations or both. The first chapter is an Intro­ duction to Psychiatry with significant persons and events in the growth of the field being noted. Chapter 2 focuses on general diagnostic categories and the major intervention strategies that are used in the field. Chapter 3 presents patient man­ agement in detail so that in the later chapters, as disorders are being presented, the student can have the management strategies clearly in mind. Chapters 4 through 12 review each of the major psychiatric disorders in detail and provide suggestions regarding the etiology and appropriate treatment of the disor­ der. Chapter 13 focuses on the special problems of children. That is, while children can have most of the same disorders as can adults, there are disorders that are diagnosed in childhood that are different from those of adults. Chapter 14 focuses on special issues in the practice of psychiatry such as sleep issues, forensic psychiatry, AIDS, etc. Chapter 15 is devoted to psychiatric emer­ gencies in both adults and children. This is a review text and should not be substituted for more complete texts. The authors do not recommend that this book be used as a course text except in those academic offerings that are specifically directed to an overview of psychiatry.
