About this book

This atlas is the first fully visual reference to cover psychiatry broadly, appealing to psychiatric as well as non-psychiatric clinicians and trainees who need an easy-to-use visual resource with holistic approach to patient care.  

Written by expert clinicians and educators, this text describes basic clinical and scholarly information across the field utilizing an easy-to-understand format. The rich figures and tables describe etiology, pathophysiology, phenomenology, and treatment even in areas that are difficult to illustrate, including substance-related disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, personality disorders, and others. The visual approach proves valuable to some of the most innovative techniques in psychiatry, including implications for neuroimaging.

Comprehensive and unique, Atlas of Psychiatry is a landmark reference for all medical practitioners looking for an intricate yet accessible visual resource.
